Live in Japan, 1967

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Peter, Paul and Mary may not have pleased the folk purists very much, but the trio did as much as anyone to bring folk music to a commercial peak in the early '60s, and by championing new songwriters like Bob Dylan, Fred Neil, and John Denver, among others, and sticking up for rock (even though rock wasn't even close to what they did), the group showed a sharp sense of time and era.

It's a pretty standard Peter, Paul and Mary set for the time, featuring the trio's signature versions of "Puff, the Magic Dragon," Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer," and Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind," among others, including a nice version of Fred Neil's "The Other Side of This Life," and it's nicely recorded, full of good will, energy, and the trio's trademark vocal harmonies.
