CD Reviews

100 stars - 5 for each track
Geoff Hall | Borehamwood, UK | 03/05/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The unmistakeable sound of the Mamas and the Papas had a fairly short recording life - about five years. However, their legacy continues 30 years on.This is just a magical set of their best tracks. "Dedicated To The One I Love", "Monday, Monday", "California Dreamin'" "Go Where You Wanna Go", "Trip, Stumble And Fall" - I could go on. The beauty of this foursome was that their vocals stood out - two beats in and you knew who you were listening to. Mama Cass leading on John Philips' songs; then the harmonies kick in.Basically a folk band, who converted "Twist and Shout" from the Beatles' rock version into a wonderfully magically folk-smooch, they just never failed to stun me into wonderment.I love them so much and miss them badly. Long may they be remembered."
The one to get...

"Like many 60s artists it's the original compilations that are the ones to get and, re-issued several times over the decades, this remains the Mamas & Papas definitive collection. Featuring just about every track that made them something special, with the minimum of "fillers", it avoids over concentration on Mama Cass' solo output (good as it was) and zeros down on the ecstatic four part harmonies that catapulted them to international success, including difficult to find but essential tracks like "Trip, Stumble & Fall". The end result? A perfectly formed record of why, for a fleeting period, they were up there with the best."
