Peter, Paul And Mary In The Wind on Numbered Limited Edition 180g 45RPM 2LP
Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes / Pressed at RTI
No American folk group has lasted longer or amassed a more loyal following than Peter, Paul and Mary; indeed, few groups of any genre have logged more years or miles; spreading the message and engaging the next (now five) generations. During their now legendary career, the trio won five Grammy's, produced 13 Top 40 hits, of which 6 ascended into the Top 10 - as well as eight gold and five platinum albums.
That Peter, Paul and Mary achieved such a rarefied level of commercial success without compromise, and while continuing a centuries-old tradition of people raising their voices in song for the sake of freedom, is simply further evidence of their extraordinarily successful career as much a mission accomplished as a musical career.
In 1963, the trio released the LPs Moving and In The Wind, which hit #2 and #1 respectively, and continued to hold Top 20 positions alongside their self-titled debut. This success marked the beginning of an incredibly fertile and influential time for the group, and for the contemporary urban folk tradition they personified. Their commercial high water mark occurred in the third week of November 1963, when they held three of the top six positions on Billboard's album chart.
In addition to a handful of originals and traditionals, In The Wind features three Bob Dylan songs including "Blowin' in the Wind," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" and "Quit Your Low Down Ways." Their recording of "Blowin' in the Wind" won 1964 Grammy awards for Best Folk Recording and Best Performance by a Vocal Group. The album also boasts liner notes from Dylan himself.
