Leaving on a Jet Plane: Peter, Paul and Mary

When I went back to Ghana for the first time, forty years after I had left, my former students told me they wanted to sing Miss Ryan’s song for me, one they always sing when they are together. It was this song.

    Every time I hear this song by them I remember how good they were and how much I miss Mary. No one can replace her.

      Bob,
      I totally agree. They were the first folk group I knew and I bought several of their albums with my allowance. They led me to older groups of the 50’s. I was a folkie because of them.

      I have seen them in concert 3 times. I also miss Mary.

    Nobody can replace this one, either:

      Mark,
      He was an original. I learned so many traditional folk songs from the Weavers and from Pete. This is a great song!

    At your request, some bluegrass. Lyle Lovett does the more countrified version, but I like Ralph II’s a bit better. How about you? A close call. And I may be biased because I like Ralph Stanley’s music a lot.

      Spaceman,
      I know Ralph Stanley but not his son. This the first time I’ve heard him.

      The Lyle just beat out the Stanley by a nose.

      Thanks!
