The Mamas & The Papas: The Complete Singles (2-LP)

(Real Gone) 31 tracks

With the debut of their first hit, ''California Dreamin','' on the charts, The Mamas and The Papas proclaimed themselves to be a potent new force in the burgeoning West Coast folk-rock movement, announcing to the world that something special and beautiful was happening in California. Real Gone Music celebrates the group's very special legacy by releasing The Mamas and The Papas: The Complete Singles, a two-LP, 31-track set that brings together on vinyl for the first time since their original 45 rpm release the A and B side of every single the group released, all in their impossible-to-find mono single mixes.

Remastered by Aaron Kannowski, the engineer responsible for Real Gone's acclaimed collections of singles by fellow Dunhill label acts The Grass Roots and Steppenwolf, the set includes notes by Co-Producer Ed Osborne that feature quotes drawn from extended interviews with Mama Michelle Phillips and Dunhill label head and producer Lou Adler, while the package also includes a number of rarely-seen images of this eminently photographable band. Many of the single mixes haven't been available on vinyl since their original release; over the course of listening to this set you're going to hear such legendary songs as ''Monday, Monday,'' ''California Dreamin','' ''Creeque Alley,'' ''I Saw Her Again,'' ''Words of Love,'' ''Dream a Little Dream of Me,'' ''Glad to Be Unhappy,'' ''Dedicated to the One I Love,'' and ''It's Getting Better'' exactly as folks heard them over the radio back in those halcyon days.

Due to the unfortunate situation with the Dunhill single master tape reels (supposedly thrown out at the behest of one of the label's owners), Mamas and Papas fans had despaired of ever hearing the group's original singles on LP. Now, after countless hours spent tracking down sources, Real Gone Music is proud to release the most significant vinyl addition to The Mamas and The Papas discography in years.

"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.
