Early wish fulfilled

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was able to get my birthday wish early this year. A full DVD/CD collection of Peter Paul & Mary called Carry It On.

I grew up with their music, admiring what they stood for, and how they became so active in so many causes- Cuba, El Salvador, the march on Washington for Equal Rights, always their music carried such important messages. They are so much a pivotal piece of American History. I can't wait for the package to arrive. What a treat! For me anyway!

oh how wonderful. My favorite PP&M song will always be "Puff the Magic Dragon". I just break down every time I hear it. I'm way too soft.

Okay please don't yell at me for being clueless but what other songs do they sing?

They were THE folk-pop group of the 60's. They covered Puff, but everything else they did was original work. They were the ones who authored the very famous Leaving on a Jet Plane. Do you know that one?

What I like about them is they took seven years off way back when, and when they came back for their first return concert they sold out and got a standing ovation before they even sang a note!

There songs are so many- El Salvador- The Wedding Song- Blowin in the Wind-Jesus on the Wire (about Matthew Shepherd) - really they were the activist's voices in song- any cause that was unfair, any american policy on foreign soil they didn't agree with- it all became a song-
