The Mamas and the Papas (Mono Edition)
Released in the fall of 1966, the Mamas and the Papas' self-titled second album remains one of the foursome's most enduring and popular releases, and contains some of the most appealing and accomplished music that they ever produced. Along with the infectious hits "I Saw Her Again" and "Words of Love," The Mamas and the Papas features such John Phillips-penned favorites as "No Salt On Her Tail," "Dancing Bear" and "Trip, Stumble and Fall," along with distinctive covers of Martha and the Vandellas' Motown anthem "Dancing in the Street" and the Rodgers and Hart standard "My Heart Stood Still."
Deliver (Stereo Edition)
Released in early 1967, the group's third longplayer Deliver is one of the Mamas and the Papas' essential works, and an exquisitely engaging expression of the group's singular pop artistry. The album produced a pair of Top Five singles in the amusingly autobiographical "Creeque Alley" and the quartet's transcendent reading of "Dedicated to the One I Love," previously recorded by the "5" Royales and the Shirelles. Other highlights include the much-loved originals "Look Through My Window" and "Boys & Girls Together," and reworkings of the Smokey Robinson-penned Temptations classic "My Girl" and the Beatles/Isley Brothers hit "Twist and Shout."
