1962: Peter Paul & Mary signed their first contract

Did you love Peter, Paul & Mary's voices and their many wonderful songs?

We remember today that Peter Paul & Mary signed their first contract with Warner Bros:
"They took a decisive step on their path to success on January 29, 1962, when they signed their first recording contract with Warner Bros.—the label they still call home nearly half a century later.
Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey and Mary Travers ran in the same Greenwich Village circles, but had never performed together before..."
Well....and the rest is musical history.   I love the music of Peter, Paul & Mary.  I've collected their songs for years.  They are a part of my personal soundtrack.  They remind me of so many moments in my life.

Mary Travers died in 2009.  We posted a couple of times about her death.  Peter & Paul rarely perform anymore.  However, they left us a musical legacy of beautiful tunes.  

P.S. Their music is now available in a digital format.    

And there is this wonderful songbook of guitar chords and lyrics!
