Best Of The Mamas & The Papas The
The Mamas and the Papas blazed across the '60s folk-rock scene, scoring nine Top 40 hits in less than two years. So bright was their brief run that it earned them a berth in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. This set shows at least some of the reason why--there's the era-defining hit "California Dreamin'," plus other triumphs such as "Monday, Monday," "Words of Love," "Dedicated to the One I Love," and the autobiographical "Creeque Alley." --Daniel Durchholz
Top Customer Reviews
The classic Mamas and Papas songs are all here including California Dreaming, Go where you wanna go, Monday Monday, I saw her again, Words of love and Creeque alley. These are classic slices of sixties folk-rock, some of which at least you must be already familiar with.
Also in this collection are their great covers including Dedicated to the one I love (Shirelles) Do you wanna dance, which was originally an American hit for Bobby Freeman but later became a British hit for Cliff Richard and an American hit for the Beach Boys. Dream a little dream of me was over forty years old when the Mamas and Papas recorded it - this song was actually the first Mama Cass solo recording though the group was still united at this stage. Some of these covers were also hits for the Mamas and Papas.
You can also hear Mama Cass singing It's getting better, Make your own kind of music and other songs recorded after the break-up.
If you just want a single CD of Mamas and Papas music, this is a good one to choose. If you are thinking that a single CD may not be enough, I recommend the double CD, Singles plus.
The smooth harmonizing of the group, highlighted by the clear, flexible and gorgeous voice of the late Mama Cass is surprisingly cheerful even today. The laid-back tone is great for weekend play, whilst cleaning the house or writing checks to pay bills. It makes me nostalgic--I guess I still love the same music I played in the 60's. Sigh.
Cass's voice soars. I close my eyes and float among the clouds when she sings. Mama Cass's voice is legendary. These songs are classics.
