AllMusic Review by

Issued in 2008, this three-disc box set, compiled by Rhino Records and available only at Barnes & Noble, presents the first solo albums released by Peter, Paul & Mary following the famous folk trio’s 1970 break-up. While Peter Yarrow and Mary Travers offered up PETER and MARY, respectively, Noel Paul Stookey cheekily entitled his record PAUL AND, also managing to score a significant hit with the elegant, nuptial-themed “Wedding Song (There Is Love).” Essential for diehard PP&M fans, THE SOLO RECORDINGS: 1971-1972 also includes Travers’s dramatic “Indian Sunset” (penned by Elton John and Bernie Taupin) and Yarrow’s defiant “Don’t Ever Take My Freedom Away,” songs that help tide audiences over until the group reformed in ’78.
