The music of Peter, Paul, and Mary refuses to age. Decades have passed since the folk trio's breakthrough in the early 1960s, but new generations keep returning to P, P & M's songs, stirred by their indelible mix of exuberance, delicacy, intensity, and whimsy. The Very Best of Peter, Paul, and Mary follows other fine collections of the trio's work, including the definitive multi-disc box Carry It On. This latest retrospective brings together all the signature hits -- they sound as stirring and effervescent as ever -- as well as significant performances from the group's various solo efforts. An authentic sense of conviction is palpably felt in songs of social conscience; a sense of wonderment and joy is equally expressed in songs of a lighter nature. Simultaneously a product of their times and utterly timeless, Peter, Paul, and Mary are to be treasured, and this collection does the trick.

This cd, for me, is American folk music at it's finest. From Woody Guthrie standards to songs that I've heard on John Denver and Captain and Tennille albums growing up, it's all there. The anti war songs aimed at Vietnam in the '60's can easily be applied today. Peter, Paul and Mary are timeless and perform these standards in their own harmonic, melodious style. I find this to be very relaxing to listen to on the way to work, a lot of it is happy music. It puts me more in the mood to cope with the everyday stresses I have to face. There is nothing offensive about the lyrics, so moms can play it for their kids, it may even help to put some infants and toddlers to sleep at nap time. I thoroughly enjoy this cd, and I would highly recommend it. :)

Recently it occurred to me that I lost interest as music videos became popular. I like their music. The music and the artists is enough for me. The listening is enough for me. Videos are not important, only the audio matters to me. I rarely watch music. I rather read the liner notes, or do something else to the music. On this CD, there were many songs I was familiar with. But two were new and particularly enjoyable to me, "For Baby" and "Don't Laugh at Me". BTW, the ratings categories "It is" and "Good for" above do not seem applicable to me.

When I first heard Peter, Paul and Mary...more years ago than I care to mention!...I was blown away. Their music changed my life and I will always love it. This particular album is a great way to introduce more young people to the joy of it.

Peter,Paul and Mary have been folk favorites for 40 years or more they made several John Denver songs favorites. I enjoy listening to them in the car and at home.
