BBC Review

If there was one criticism to make of last year's otherwise excellent Mamas and Papas box set, it was that it skirted so briefly over 'Mama' Cass Elliot's solo career. The release of Dream A Little Dream Of Me is therefore welcome, going a long way towards filling that gap, and proving- if it ever needed proving - that Mama Cass was one of pop's few truly sublime singers.

It's also a well timed release. If the Mamas and the Papas always sounded autumnal, with their wistful and melancholic harmonies, Elliot's solo work leaned towards the brash sunny optimism of spring. These songs were mostly released in 1969, the year the hippy dream was horrifically unravelling thanks to Altamont and the Manson family, but Elliot still sang as if utopia was just around the corner.

The song titles say it all; "Good Times Are Coming", "It's Getting Better" and "Make Your Own Kind Of Music" are all breathlessly happy, lifted by Elliot's soaring vocals and the jauntiest of musical arrangements. Lyrically, they are highly Californian hymns to following your dreams, no matter how unlikely, and as such are given a particular conviction by the fact that the overweight Elliot had herself become such an unlikely pop star.

Of course, like California itself, all this dazzling brightness can become a little wearing after a while, and by the time "Listen To The World" appears the experience is a bit like having candy floss forced down your throat. Not even Elliot's voice can rescue songs like "Don't Let The Good Life Pass You By" from jangling blandness.

No wonder the most rewarding songs here are the ones where Elliot varies the tone a little. There's the low-key folk of "California Earthquake" - the only track here which hints at a darker future - and there's the hallucinatory, languid "Disney Girls", both seductive and somehow unsettling.

But even if everything else here was second rate, the title song alone would make it worth the price. "Dream A Little Dream Of Me" has been covered countless times, but Elliot's drowsy, blissful rendition remains the definitive version. Take it somewhere sunny and see in the spring with it. --Jaime Gill

Unlike some artists who have passed on, Cass Elliot has not had a wealth of unreleased tracks surface in the marketplace. Finally, we have a real gem to celebrate in "East Of The Sun (West Of The Moon)" from 1972. It gives fans a beautiful idea of what Cass might have gone on to record had she just a bit more time. The vocal is crisp, the delivery savvy, and the instrumentation and production value could stand toe-to-toe with anything released today. Cass Elliot is right on the mark here. Overall, the collection is a delightful cross section of much of her solo career...debuting as it does, for the very first time on Cd, a couple tracks from her "The Road Is No Place For A Lady" album. Here's hoping the entire work soon sees the light of day in Cd form. It is long overdue. In all fairness, the Cd packaging is slim, but the music is long on talent!! Wouldn't it be nice if someone would package a Cd's worth of Cass Elliot U.K. television performances?! The fans are waiting...

Not just for fans, this cd is some of Cass's best work.
From poppy sunshine morning melodies to heart wrenching love songs, this woman could sing!!! The tuneful melodies never really seem to age, and it is hard to not tap your foot along to the beat.From style to style each song seems to be sung with so much feeling, you get the impression that Cass is singing about her own experiences. This album should be in everybody's collection. I recommend it %100
A truly gifted woman, such a shame we didn't have her with us longer.
Happy listening :)

i first came about mama cass through the film "beautiful thing" which used her big hits both solo and with the mamas and papas.

Mama has one of them voices..like karen carpenter and eva cassidy..that is pure and amazing and it makes you think what would have become..if theyd lived!

i hope you all know the standards and hits "dream a little dream of me" "welcome to the world" "one way ticket" "its getting better"and "make youre own kind of music" if you think they are amazing the rest are just as good..amazing pop songs..amazing lyrics...amazing delivery...

it not the hits plus anything else to bring up the track listings..these are amazing tracks!!!

they are in the same happy go go lucky mood..the same pure pop perfection..the same wondeful lyrics that will brighten a rainy day!

the feel of the album is similar to judith durham and the seekers!

i was about 7 when mama cass died and im forty now but luckily i found her..and my life is richer for it! for anyone else who knows when music was music this is a must!

for anyone younger..i would say buy this album its musical heritage and you will love it...it will show what music is all about! like abba..like the carpenters..this is timeless and perfect!!!

Cass Elliot had one of the great female pop voices of all time and this compilation of some of her best work shows her wonderful range that was always spot on.

It is so good to have an album of her solo work which is as important as her contribution to the Mamas and the Papas. My two favourite Cass tracks are "New World Coming" and "The Good Times are Coming" and both are included here. Mama Cass' voice was as pure as the California sunshine.

Sadly she died all too young. One wonders what material she would have covered and what direction she would have gone if her life hadn't been cut tragically short. This compilation shows us what we had and possibly what we missed.

Some great songs, and the fab voice of Cass Elliot. What a shame we didn't have her with us for longer, what music we might have had. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Production is terrible. If you like to listen to the backing music but struggle to hear Mama Cass's beautiful voice, then this is for you!
