Puff & Other Family Classics [Barnes & Noble Exclusive]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Those who grew up on -- or raised children to -- Peter, Paul and Mommy will be mesmerized by the fresh folk sounds of Puff & Other Family Classics. Joining the talents of Peter Yarrow Peter, Paul & Mary, his daughter Bethany Yarrow, and her musical partner, cellist Rufus Cappadocia the pair also record as Bethany & Rufus, the disc reflects both a broad view of folk musics as well as an internationalist groove. For example, on "Blue Tail Fly," a tune most closely associated with Burl Ives, PB&R maintain the original's easygoing gait but liven things up with harmonies by Peter and Bethany on the well-known chorus "Jimmy crack corn, and I don't care" and...

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Those who grew up on -- or raised children to -- Peter, Paul and Mommy will be mesmerized by the fresh folk sounds of Puff & Other Family Classics. Joining the talents of Peter Yarrow Peter, Paul & Mary, his daughter Bethany Yarrow, and her musical partner, cellist Rufus Cappadocia the pair also record as Bethany & Rufus, the disc reflects both a broad view of folk musics as well as an internationalist groove. For example, on "Blue Tail Fly," a tune most closely associated with Burl Ives, PB&R maintain the original's easygoing gait but liven things up with harmonies by Peter and Bethany on the well-known chorus "Jimmy crack corn, and I don't care" and a folksy-jazzy fusion of electric and acoustic guitars. A deep admiration for Celtic folk "Shule Aru" and American roots music "Foggy Dew" is constant throughout, as is a blend of the familiar and the unexpected. Whether listeners know "Careless Love" from Bessie Smith or Madeleine Peyroux, they'll enjoy the expert finger-picking, loping rhythm, and sweet melancholy of the version here. The trio transform the soulful warning dished out by the old gospel number "You Better Mind" into a Stax-influenced workout, with a slithering bass line and swirling organ underpinnings. But the crowning moment here is certainly the title song, which finds Peter revisiting his best-known tune, trading verses and harmonizing with his daughter on a beautifully restrained update that reminds us once again why a good story bears retelling. Turns out that sometimes you can go home again.

    wonderful whimsey

    This was a gift for me in anticipation of my first grandchild. The songs and artists are spectacular. I've about worn the CD out trying to learn the words so I can sing to him. Hopefully when no one else is listening! A truly wonderful treasure!

    A reviewer

    What a great take on Puff and it evokes wonderful memories from childhood. I am ordering both the book and the CD for my niece and nephew, so they can also enjoy this classic. Thank you, Pete Yarrow!
