Mary Travers - Morning Glory; with nod to Paul Williams

Mary Travers - Morning Glory.  I had to look up who she is.  OK, I should have known.  She is THAT Mary.  Of Peter, Paul and Mary.  She passed away two years ago.  Peter, Paul and Mary was one of the most successful folk-singing groups of the 1960s.  Unlike most folk musicians who were a part of the early 1960's Greenwich Village music scene, Travers actually grew up in that part of New York.  And you can see the inset photo of Paul Williams - what a songwriter.  A a genius (I know - I do toss around term probably too much when it comes to songwriters) he wrote songs performed by Three Dog Night (Just An Old Fashioned Love Song), Helen Reddy, the Carpenters (We've Only Just Begun, Rainy Days and Mondays), and of course for Barbra Streisand.  Paul Williams is in the Songwriting Hall of Fame.


  1. Our local PBS stations have been running a Peter Paul and Mary documentary lately, which was totally enjoyable for a child of the sixties as I was...
