Well, boys and girls, those weren't the only two classic albums released that year: "Surrealistic Pillow" Jefferson Airplane , "The Velvet Underground and Nico", "Headquarters" The Monkees , "Are You Experienced" Jimi Hendrix and others were all released that year and have their devoted fans.
However, the album from that year that spends more time on my turntable now my CD player is "Album " by Peter, Paul and Mary. From Eric Anderson's "Rolling Home" with Paul Butterfield on the mouth harp to the hit single, "Rock and Roll Music", this album was chock full of good songs and great arrangements.
The incrediby strange "Weep for Jamie" and "The Great Mandela" are still covered by coffe house singers and sensitive young people who sing with their eyes closed. Even "Big Blue Frog" has its fans.

Jewish Publication Society. The harmony singing is excellent throughout and it gives a good insight into the changing times of the sixties. Report abuse. Peter, Paul and Mary were part of my childhood. They were one of a handful of groups playing folk music that regularly got radio airplay and though shunned by "folkies" they along with Kingston Trio, New Christy Minstrels and The Weavers were responsible for my life-long love of the genre.
This album contains standards that were a prerequisite for folk singers in the 50s and early 60s to 'make their mark'; songs such as Lemon Tree, Stewball and Miles. Finally, there are three songs which group members had a hand in composing including Puff The Magic Dragon.
However, I found that this contains all the essentials and importantly - though carried out earlier - greater care has been given to the remastering. This is most noticable on Puff. If there was any criticism of this album it would be the two page insert which only gives the track listing and an extremely condensed group history restricted to one side. Hampered by the fact that they didn't write most of their material and too "middle of the road" for hard core folk and folk-rock fans, time has now pretty much labelled them as "lightweight" also rans.
With no retrospectives now available other than a huge, "for committed fans only" boxed set, "Ten Years Together" is the only introduction to their music currently on offer.
The bad news is that it's unfairly expensive. The good news? Worth every penny. The best may well have been chosen here including covers they "made their own" and there is no "filler" in a concise 13 track selection. Brought back memories of my younger days.

On the last page of the book, she is introduced to Puff by an older Jackie Paper. The tune was used by Versatec, a computer printer company, in the promotional LP Push the Magic Button for the song of the same name.
