Love these songs! My favorites are from the songsters of the '60's. As bad as that time was some really good things came about as a result of the upheaval of our society. Would love to see the sixties rise again!

I have sung a couple of these at protests... I have also sung "If I had a hammer..." on more than one occasion.

Love most of these songs and am glad they were included---Peter, Paul and Mary are my favorite folk singers (of "peace" or "dragons" or most anything!).

I do like the song, "Peace Train", alot, in spite of what anyone might think or feel about Cat Steven's conversion to Islam. It's a great song. And as a big fan of George Harrison, I love his song "Give Me Love". I also agree that "The Great Mandala" should be included, and others by Peter Paul and Mary.
This was a GREAT era for music of this kind!

Gee, why are almost all of them from the 60's and the 70's? What did we know back then that we have forgotten now?
