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'. Universal. 2005.

Call the Mamas and the Papas what you like,and shove them into any niche box you wish to; this four part harmony vocal/instrumental group from the '60's,shone briefly but produced some timeless classics of the era.
California dreaming,Monday Monday,dedicated to one I love,Creque alley etc,still heard regularly on (some) radio stations today.
Also included are 'Mama' Cass Elliot's best known songs; Dream a little dream of me,It's getting better and make your own kind of music.
N.B.the latter has recently been a sizeable hit for Paloma Faith at time of review.
Sad to think there is only Michelle Phillips who is still with us (on planet earth) ,from the Mamas and Papas.
With this excellent and truly smashing collection,their legacy and spirit will live on for a very long time yet - I'm quite sure!
In many respects the Mamas and Papas fall into a similar category as Buddy Holly - both only recorded for a short time but left a legacy behind them for which every true pop music lover should be truly glad.This is particularly true of Mama Cass who, despite a troubled life and an unfortunate death at an early age, left to the world her unique voice and a message of love.
For those of us old enough to actually remember flower power and the era of love and peace this is a must have recording. For those who were not even born at the time, and even those who are teenagers today, this is a salutary lesson in music conveying the message of an era - and the tracks remain haunting today!
This band started as the backing band for Barry MCGuire "Eve of Destruction" and went on to write such beautiful melodies as Monday Monday and California Dreaming. They continued with boppy songs and then Mama Cass split for a while to have her knock-out hit "Dream a little dream of me",
This collection also includes the whimsical "Creque Alley" which lists all the bands that were trying to get up and going at that time around California, great for students of history and entertaining for nerds to run through the names and see where they fit.
All of the above named songs are on this collection except for "Eve of Destruction" but Barry McGuire does get a mention in "Creque Alley"
This CD is cheaper than a fancy coffee, but far more satisfying.
All the famous ones are there and great fro cruising in the car.
Put the seat so far back you are lying down and use the satnav to tell you when to turn.
