Peter Paul and Mary's third album has something for everyone.

This great folk music trio's third album is a wonderful mix of slower and more upbeat folk songs from the lilting "All My Trials" to Dylan's almost rocky "Lowdown Ways." It starts off with the somewhat upbeat gospel folk song "Very Last Day" and then goes to the lullaby "Hushaby." Next is the somewhat esorteric "Long Chain on." This is followed by the children's song, "Rocky Road" which has a really neat counterpoint part. "Let my people go" is done with a social rather than religious setting, but then there's the previously mentioned "All My Trials" to tie back to the opening "Very Last Day." There's also the very poignant metaphorical "Polly Von" and of course the title song, Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind." This album is must have for folk fans.

This album has something for everyone. (The children can enjoy "Rocky Road" along with the adults and it has songs of both religious and social import. I already mentioned the differences in speed between the songs. It is remarkable that this, only their third album, should show such a variety of styles withing the folk genre.

It has five of my favorite Peter Paul and Mary songs:

"Very Last Day"

"Rocky Road"

"All my Trials"

"Polly Von"

and "Freight Train"

Not to mention the ever popular "Blowin' in the Wind."

I can't think of anything that would make this album better--except perhaps if they left out "Lowdown Ways" and substituted another song, since it really leans toward rock, but that's just my point of view as a folkie.
