Peter, Paul & Mary In Concert reissue from Analogue Productions!

200-gram double LP pressing by Quality Record Pressings!

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

Stoughton Printing tip-on "old-style" gatefold jacket

This double album originally released in 1964 opens with a then-new Bob Dylan song, "The Times They Are A' Changin'," and closes with the best-known song ever written by Pete Seeger and Lee Hayes, "If I Had a Hammer." That seems to sum up Peter, Paul & Mary, but In Concert offers a lot more than that, writes AllMusic.

The surprises include vignettes in blues and gospel, and, most notably, the group's humorous digressions. Peter, Paul & Mary spared few opportunities for a good laugh on stage, beginning with the introduction to "A' Soalin'," which shows off a lightheartedness that was an essential part of who they were, even as it leads into an exquisitely sung round-like piece that should have found its way into the repertory of Steeleye Span. "Blue" gives the trio a chance to play around with rock & roll, from doo wop to British Invasion, through the song "Old Blue" (satirizing folk music purists at the same time), and Paul Stookey adds his own sound effect embellishments to Woody Guthrie's "Car-Car."

The solo spots are also worthwhile, particularly Peter Yarrow's introspective version of "Le Deserteur," followed by his dazzling, rousing sing-along on "Oh, Rock My Soul"; and Mary Travers' rendition of "Single Girl," a low-key proto-feminist song. The group's rendition of "It's Raining" achieves an exquisite mix of gossamer textured harmonizing and thematic innocence, and their rendition of the Reverend Gary Davis' "If I Had My Way" is a bracing re-interpretation for three interwoven voices. Finally, the version of "If I Had a Hammer" that closes this album is superior to their hit single of the same song. Mastered by Kevin Gray, 200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings, gatefold jacket.

I was disappointed with this release. This is a full repeat of their concert complete with dated jokes which you do not want to keep hearing each time you play this album. Sound quality: dry. Maybe it reflects the microphones that were used but the presentation lacks ambience and I found it irritating. I do not have the original pressing so I do not know where the fault lies but to me there is a digital transistor edge to this recording. Just my opinion

Masterful and Phenomenal Sound Reproduction of a great Folk act!

I remember seeing PP&M in concert as a young musician. I remember the feeling of hearing Peter and Paul's acoustic guitars ringing out in the auditorium. And I agree Mary's "500 Miles" does give you goose pimples. I remember thinking I am seeing something historic. This group made folk music accessible to the populace. I love the word "pathos". Thank you Analogue Productions for the re-release. Brilliant, just brilliant! Now how about CSNY's "4 Way Street" with Neil Young's trilogy?

"You are there" sonic enjoyment!

Superior mastering of this album has bring the listener back to 1964. It was like recorded yesterday! I even clap my hands while the audience applause to the wonderful performance! Don't tell me you don't get your goosebumps on Mary's "500 Miles".

Stunning reissue

I was delighted last year to read that this was being pressed, and then came the agonising wait for shipping. Worth waiting for, was it ever. I have the original but the clarity particularly, and warmth of this release captures the group at its magnificent best. Worth 10 stars if I could. QRP just keep delivering.
