Overview

Their third recording was one of the group's stronger outings, even if it confirms their status as folk popularizers rather than musical innovators. In particular, this record was essential to boosting the profile of Bob Dylan, including their huge hit cover of "Blowin' in the Wind," their Top Ten version of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," and the bluesy "Quit Your Lowdown Ways," which Dylan himself would not release in the '60s (although his version finally came out on The Bootleg Series). "Stewball," "All My Trials," and "Tell It on the Mountain" were other highlights of their early repertoire, and the dramatic, strident, but inspirational "Very Last Day" is one of the best original tunes the group ever did.

Had this album as a child in '63, seminal music- brilliant, moving, truly a must have for any music lover of any genre! Everyone should experience the power of "All My Trials" performed by this legendary trio.

Albert Grossman managed Peter Paul and Mary as well as Bob Dylan so it was inevitable that PP and M would be covering some Bob Dylan songs and they did so gloriously with their version of Blowin in the Wind. The rest of the album is very good, but it's Blowin in the Wind that makes this album worthy of adding to your collection.
