Mary Travers may have always been listed last, yet she's the first one to come to mind in the group as its primary vocalist. And this album is fitting and fond farewell to a member of the team who gave so much. The listener may recognize the tracks culled from past PBS specials and may almost expect to hear Travers add "Happy Holidays" after "Peace all over the world" on "Blowin' In the Wind" taken from the Holiday Celebration album. Most of the tracks benefit from the gentle orchestrations, particularly, "Jesus On the Wire," with the strings and added bass, yet at other times, the group seems to be swimming against the orchestra, the intricate three-part harmonies lost. So long, Mary and Peter and Noel Paul. And thank you.

This album was bought over several selected albums. The price was good and my discounts helped me afford it. Peter Paul and Mary I grew up with and i was looking for something fun to use in my tai chi and water aerobics classes. many people recognized the songs and they forgot about there pains and limited mobility , worked out well and in the end felt glad they came. Thank you all. In Peace Cody Flying Eagle
