In the Wind is the third album by the American folk music trio Peter, Paul And Mary, released in 1963. In the Wind was so successful that when it hit #1 on the Billboard album charts, it caused their two previous albums to re-enter the Top 10 as well. At this point in musical history the folk music revival was in full flower.
The lead-off single of Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" became world famous when it sold a phenomenal three hundred thousand copies in the first week of release. On July 13, 1963, it reached number two on the Billboard pop chart, with sales exceeding one million copies. It spent five weeks atop the easy listening chart. The second single from the album, "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," another song by Dylan, peaked at number 2 on the Adult Contemporary chart and number 9 on the Pop Singles chart. At the Grammy Awards of 1964, their recording of "Blowin' in the Wind" won the Best Folk Recording and Best Performance by a Vocal Group.
At Axpona 2016, Jonathan Valin reviews his Five Best Systems. ORG's In The Wind was used as a reference Disc in ARC's sound room at the show. System composed of Sonus faber Il Cremonese three-and-a-half-ways driven by ARC electronics, sourced by an AMG Giro 9 turntable, cabled with Kubala-Sosna Emotion, and supported by nonpareil Critical Mass Maxxum stands:
"...on the voices, guitars, brass, percussion, and standup bass of the Buena Vista Social Clubs Lost and Found or ORGs fabulous 45rpm reissue of Peter, Paul & Marys In The Wind, the overall sound was so much like the real thing it gave me the proverbials." - Jonathan Valin, theabsolutesound.com, April 20, 2016
And at various rooms at the Munich High End 2016, comments by Jonathan Valin:
"...gorgeous timbre on PP&Ms All My Trials with exceptional reproduction of vibrato."
"On my PP&M disc, the trios voices sounded dark, dulcet, gorgeous."
"This was quite a remarkable setup as I heard things through it that I hadn't heard as clearly on anything else, such as Paul's fingering of Sebastian (his twelve-string casket-style guitar) on my PP&M LP." - Jonathan Valin, theabsolutesound.com, May 17, 2016
"Original Recording Groups 45-rpm re-mastering of In The Wind is superb. The pristine clarity, stereo separation and tonal warmth exceed standard CD quality." -Robbie Gerson, audaud.com, rated 4.5 stars
"Their third recording was one of the group's stronger outings...the dramatic, strident, but inspirational "Very Last Day" is one of the best original tunes the group ever did." -Richie Unterberger, allmusic.com
