“When I Need You Most of all”

Most of you (probably all of you) will know Mary Travers (1936 – 2009) as the “Mary” in Peter, Paul & Mary, but some of you may not know about her solo recordings. She recorded a number of albums including “Morning Glory” , and one of my favorite songs on that album is “When I Need You Most Of All.” The title line is so simple and says it all – “Will you be here, when I need you most of all?”

Sadly Mary Travers is no longer with us, but her singing can still bring great pleasure. Enjoy!

  1. I love Mary Travers. She was participant in such a great era for music and civil rights. “Michael, Row Your Boat Ashore”: When I listen to and play this song on my guitar, I find it so awesomely inspiring; one of PP&M’s greatest hits. God Bless them All.

  2. What a nice surprise of a tender, beautiful song to listen to. 🙂
    I grew up listening to Peter, Paul and Mary, as my parents really enjoyed them. I remember watching special performances of them on TV with my parents. I was able to stay up past my bedtime those nights. 🙂
    I still appreciate their music and now may have to pull out their CD and look up some more of Mary’s songs.
    Thank you for some pleasant Saturday music and taking me back in time.

  3. Peter, Paul and Mary are among my most favorites dating back to their beginning days. Mary was also a favorite of mine, though not for all, during her solo career. This song that you have chosen is among her best, love her voice! I think my personal favorite is her rendition of John Denver’s “Follow Me” from her “Mary” album. You have taken me back to my much younger self and fond memories of attending their concerts. A Peter, Paul and Mary favorite is “Light One Candle.” Thank-you, always enjoy your shared music!!
