It was so sad yesterday to hear of the passing of Mary Travers. When I was a very young boy, I remember buying the album - "Peter, Paul and Mary - 10th Anniversary." I was hooked on this album and hooked on Peter, Paul and Mary every since. Theirs was the sound of a generation.
The first video here is Peter, Paul and Mary singing "Puff the Magic Dragon." In my Catholic Grammar school in the 1960's, this song was a big hit - with the nuns! So, all of us students had to learn it - and I never forgot one word.
Here is Peter, Paul and Mary singing John Denver's
"Leaving on Jet Plane"
Goodbye Mary, we are smiling for you...
