The Peter, Paul and Mary Album, also known as Album, is the sixth studio album by the American folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary, released in 1966 (see 1966 in music).[2]

The album included sessions contributions from several in-demand musicians of the era, including Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper and Charlie McCoy. Notable songs include "Hurry Sundown", which was released as a single, and "Norman Normal," which provided the basis of a 1968 Warner Bros. Cartoon Special of the same name, co-credited to Noel Stookey.
