Thanks chum - just listened to Peter, Paul and Mary "Moving" while taking a bath - dreamy!

Glad to have been of service. It's notable the degree to which success bred success here...PP&M had a handful of albums on the chart, as did Joan Baez and Bob Dylan and the Smothers Brothers (pop-folk was certainly still booming) and even the Astronauts had two. Thanks for the comment.

Thanks for the J Mathis. I saw him in concert in 1961 in Chicago. He was just like this. What a voice.

I keep meaning to seek out his earliest jazz recordings...
