Album Review

This collection of lesser-known songs by '60s folk greats Peter, Paul & Mary will probably best appeal to die-hard fans. It is a fun album that delivers everything one would expect from the trio: simple acoustic guitar melodies, great harmonies, and memorable songs. However, none of these songs — with the possible exception of the title track — could be classified as one of PP&M's greatest hits. Some of them (e.g., "Right Field," which is about a softball game) are quirky little tunes; others ("State of the Heart") are soft, pretty love songs with Casio-sounding keyboards in the background. There can be no doubt that the band remembers its role as a political mouthpiece — "El Salvador" and "Greenland Whale Fisheries" make it abundantly clear that they haven't forgotten their responsibilities.

Their longevity dwarfs that of the Weavers, while the fact that the trio continues to be associated with a major record label (Warner Bros.) after decades in the business sets them apart from rivals like the Kingston Trio and the Brothers Four. Then again, perhaps it isn't so surprising -- Peter, Paul and Mary's roots run deeper than almost...
