Features "If I Had A Hammer," "Lemon Tree" and "Where Have All The Flowers Gone"

The legendary trio's eponymous 1962 debut album produced two classics — "Lemon Tree" and Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer." Because they were always hipper and more political than the Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary were soon frequently credited as the group that transformed American folk music into 1960s pop. It would be another six months before they really exploded with "Puff the Magic Dragon," and then another six before they brought Bob Dylan into the mainstream via their hit covers of "Blowin' in the Wind" and "Don't Think Twice." Which is why 1970's 10 Years Together: The Best of Peter, Paul and Mary remains the essential buy; nevertheless, the debut features their gorgeous covers of "Cruel War" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," making this disc mandatory for folk fans.

Heavenly recording, superb pressing

This record does not say it was remastered, but the way it was originally recorded and then presented again on this re-issue is simply outstanding. The coherence of instruments and the magnificent vocals of Peter, Paul & Mary is preserved and comes alive as you spin this in glorious 45rpm. Some records have good soundstage presentation, and some have jaw-dropping ones from the outset, this record is just in the latter's league.

I felt the need to write this review as I do not see any reason for such a low rating here. I am assuming their other album, In the Wind, is also under rated here, so I will be purchasing it soon and hear that reissue for myself.
