Product Description

2008 collection. When Les Paul and Mary Ford launched their sound on the record buying public in 1950, the results were sensational. Between 1950 and 1955, discs such as "Mockin' Bird Hill", "The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise" and "Just One More Chance" rocketed up the Billboard charts. Their biggest hit, "Vaya Con Dios" came in 1953 and topped the charts for 11 weeks. Most of their hits are represented on this compilation, along with a selection of Les' instrumentals from the same period. 25 tracks. EMI Gold.

I was first introduced to Peter, Paul, and Mary when my parents bouught us their "Puff the Magic Dragon" record a very long time ago!
Their voices blend together beautifully in all their songs and it's just a very good memory of the best folk-singing group ever.
I'm especially delighted that this CD includes the song "The Troubadour" (also known as "The Wedding Song"). We had this as our main
song the day we were married and it's still my favourite as its meaning is deep, rich, and so true.

I have wanted a collection of Peter, Paul, and Mary for some time. Glad I chose this one. For the price, it is full of wonderful songs and memories. I sing along with just about all of them - in a few days, ready to play it again. I am very happy with my purchase of this CD.

It would be difficult to have anything bad to say about the music of Les Paul and Mary Ford. The music me back to my parents day and makes me happy. The genius of Les Paul is something else. Very Good!

I Love this CD Collection!! Now that I am at the maturing end of the original baby boomers (1947) I realise even more what a huge influence PP&M were not only on my life as a young person, but now to as well. What a generation we were and how PP&M were so in tune with that vibration of love peace and goodwill. Thank you Amazon for carrying all PP&M items as most local shops no longer carry so many of the songs that moved a generation and helped change a world and still make my heart sing along with them!

A classic if you are a collector of folk bands from the 60's and 70's. Classics include Puff the Magic Dragon, This Land is Your Land, Blowin'In The Wind and if I were a Hammer, just to name a few.
