|I was saddened to hear about the passing of folk singer Mary Travers. At first, when I read about it on my homepage I didn't connect who this person was. Then I heard on the nightly news that it was Mary from Peter, Paul and Mary.
I loved to hear this trio sing. At some point in my life I have warbled along to Puff The Magic Dragon, This Land is Your Land, Lemon Tree, If I had a Hammer, Blowin' in the Wind, and my favorite, Leaving on a Jet Plane. My sister, Big Red, and myself loved to harmonize right along with them as they sang.
I have the group's Greatest Hits compilation which has all of the good songs in one place.
I have it as an album.
I have it as an eight track.
I have it on cassette.
I have it on CD.
I have downloaded it from ITunes.
I have it on my Ipod.
Her voice was genuine and real. I liked it because I could understand what she and the whole group was saying. I like to sing along.
Mary, you will be missed.
Rest in peace.
