The Mamas & The Papas: If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears (mono)

ORIGINAL MONO MIX OF LANDMARK DEBUT BY FOLK-ROCK PIONEERS! 
Upon its release in 1966, the Mamas and the Papas’ debut LP If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears introduced a fresh new sound that would permanently alter the face of contemporary popular music. Leader John Phillips’ visionary producing, arranging and songwriting abilities combined with the quartet’s breathtaking harmonies to make music that was both effortlessly accessible and creatively adventurous. The album quickly topped the album charts, bringing folk-rock into the pop mainstream and making John Phillips, Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty and Cass Elliot into instant multimedia celebrities. In the years since its release, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears has come to be regarded as one of the finest pop albums of the ’60s and one of the best debut releases ever, delivering such instant classics as “California Dreamin’,” “Monday, Monday” and “Go Where You Wanna Go” to the willing ears of record buyers and radio listeners. 

Our new compact disc edition restores the rare, long-missing “toilet seat” cover and features a short essay by David Fricke. Sourced from the superior-sounding mono masters—the album maintains the same joyous sense of discovery that listeners felt when first hearing this gem in 1966.

"The Mamas & The Papas"

The Mamas and Papas produced music that, for some, was the epitome of high-class folk rock, a perfect merging of California beat and Greenwich Village melody. But despite their beginnings in the New York folk club scene of the early Sixties and their close association with the Lovin' Spoonful, the Mamas and Papas' musical style owed little to the American folk and blues tradition and was more a contrived product of shrewd pop thinking on the part of producer-manager Lou Adler.

His policy , was to match their sweet vocal sound with a rock backing and to market them in terms of their hippy image, which, though fairly common among solo performers, was almost unheard-of in groups. Most of the Mamas and Papas' material was written by leader John Phillips (born in Parris Island, South Carolina, on Aug. 30, 1941) and his wife Michelle (née Gilliam, born in California in 1944), who harmonized neatly with Cass Elliott (Alexandria, Virginia, Sept. 19, 1943) and Denny Doherty (Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1941). Their first hit was `California Dreamin' ' (Dunhill, 1966) which rivalled Scott McKenzie's 'San Francisco' as a popularizer of the flower-power philosophy.

A dozen more hits followed in the next two years, including 'Monday Monday', 'I Saw Her Again', `Creeque Alley' and a revival of 'Dedicated To The One I Love'. But the group did not progress and after a while their records began to sound pedestrian, too much like the Ray Conniff cover versions of their songs. In 1968, they finally split. Cass Elliott and Denny Doherty went solo, with vary-ing degrees of success. John made the intriguing solo album, The Wolfking of LA, then with Michelle joined the rock jet-set.
