By 1967, Peter, Paul & Mary were fighting to stay relevant. Toward that end, Album 1700 was not unsuccessful, yielding not only their final hit single (and only No. 1), "Leaving on a Jet Plane," but graceful folk-rock trappings for their repertoire of originals and covers by, among others, Bob Dylan and Eric Anderson. I Dig Rock & Roll Music is just fun. I think I have grown into understanding If I had Wings. The House Song and What's Her Name are haunting. From Eric Anderson's "Rolling Home" with Paul Butterfield on the mouth harp to the hit single, "Rock and Roll Music", this album was chock full of good songs and great arrangements. The incrediby strange "Weep for Jamie" and "The Great Mandela" are still covered by coffe house singers and sensitive young people who sing with their eyes closed.
