Peter Paul and Mary!!! A Song will Rise and Moving. Two deliciously folksy albums. I just love PP&M. Don’t you?

wiki: Peter, Paul and Mary were a US folk-singing trio whose nearly 50-year career began with their rise to become a paradigm for 1960s folk music. The trio was composed of Peter YarrowPaul Stookey and Mary Travers. After the death of Mary Travers in 2009, Yarrow and Stookey continued to perform as a duo under their individual names.

Moving is the second album by the American folk music trio Peter, Paul & Mary, released in January 1963. The lead-off single, “Big Boat,” failed to chart substantially, only staying on the Top 100 for two weeks, reaching #93.  The second single, “Settle Down (Goin’ Down That Highway),” did slightly better, peaking at #56 on the Pop charts during a 6-week run; however, it did become an easy listening hit at #14.  The third time around was the charm, as “Puff, the Magic Dragon” was a huge hit, and a defining song for the trio, reaching #2 on the Hot 100, #1 on the Easy Listening, & #10 on the R&B Charts, respectively.

A Song Will Rise is the fourth studio album by the American folk music trio Peter, Paul & Mary, released in 1965 (see 1965 in music).
