    This has been a really crappy year.. :(

    Peter, Paul, and Mary were a little bit before my time, but everyone definitely has been influenced by them, especially in their childhood. Very sad to hear of this.

    A toast with Puff the Magic Dragon playing in the backgound will be in order tonight. RIP.

    BL.

    That is what's so great about recorded music you can hear the music long after the artists are gone. It will sound to you just like it did to millions of people back in the 60's when it was new and on the radio.

    But you will not hear it in the context of the 60's so the social message is lost.

    BTW the sound is very listenable, low key, acoustic folk based on vocal harmony. People are to this day recording covers of their songs.

    I used to hate songs like Puff the Magic Dragon and The Marvelous Toy - until I heard the original versions.

    She was a great singer.
