Offered for sale is an original red vinyl pressing of the Japan-only live album, Peter, Paul and Mary in Japan, complete with original obi.
Peter, Paul and Mary were enormously popular in the United States during the 1960s, but they were also popular elsewhere, especially in Japan, where a performance there in 1967 was recorded and released (in Japan only) as Deluxe/Peter Paul and Mary in Japan.
The album contains most of their hits, and was initially released on red “Everclean” vinyl.

The trio toured Japan in December of 1967, with concerts in both Tokyo and Kyoto, and released a live album there drawn from the two shows — the album was never released in the U.S. … It’s a pretty standard Peter, Paul and Mary set for the time, featuring the trio’s signature versions of “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” Pete Seeger’s “If I Had a Hammer,” and Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind,” among others, including a nice version of Fred Neil’s “The Other Side of This Life,” and it’s nicely recorded, full of good will, energy, and the trio’s trademark vocal harmonies.
