Grammy Award winners Peter (Yarrow), Paul (Stookey) and Mary (Travers) recorded "And When I Die" in 1966 for the "Peter, Paul and Mary" album.
Composer extraordinaire Laura Nyro (Nigro) gave us "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Wedding Bell Blues", "Stoney End", "Sweet Blindness", "Eli's Comin'", "Save the Country" and "And When I Die", recorded it a year later for her debut album "More Than a New Discovery". Two years later the album was re-released as "Laura Nyro" and in 1973 as "The First Songs".
Since the group's inception there have been as many members as there are individuals in my hometown.
