Folk music may be making a comeback to some but the reality is that like most genres, the music has evolved with each passing generation. Peter, Paul and Mary turn folk music from the coffee house to the forefront of the American pop music scene and their influence is still felt today.
Ground zero for the folk music revolution would undoubtedly be the self titled release Peter, Paul and Mary. Audio fidelity has reissued a special limited numbered edition on the hybrid SACD format for an amazing journey back to the future with classics such as "If I Had A Hammer" and "Where Have All The Flowers Gone." Originally released in 1962, this ground breaking effort transcended folk, gospel, and even children's songs to become an enduring legacy in American popular culture.
Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers started a musical revolution with an infectious sound that is still admired by millions around the globe. Some releases review themselves while other releases need no review at all. You never analyze genius, you honor it.
Tracks: Early In The Morning; 500 Miles; Sorrow; This Train; Bamboo; It's Raining; If I Had My Way; Cruel War; Lemon Tree; If I Had A Hammer; Autumn To May; Where Have All The Flowers Gone.
