SPRING 2008 One of my first recordings, with a real bad soundsys, computer humming, and can hit the high notes better then hahaaa.. Nothing has changed much technically wise, haven't invested much on the soundsys, but managed to record thousands of songs, and I think I'm a better singer because of practice, but most of all met many talented snappers here, and made friends with few, and still here yelling till the early morning light sometimes hahaaa!!

The Mamas & the Papas (credited as The Mama's and the Papa's on the debut album cover and sometimes shortened to Mamas & Papas) were an American/Canadian vocal group (Denny Doherty was from Canada) who came to prominence in the 1960s. The group recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968 with a short reunion in 1971, releasing five studio albums and eleven Top 40 hit singles. They have sold nearly 40 million records worldwide. Their signature sound was based on four-part male/female vocal harmonies arranged by John Phillips, the band's songwriter, who managed to "leave the folk music behind" and blend his writing with the new "beat" sound in an unprecedented mode. The band's first single, "Go Where You Wanna Go", was released in 1965, failing to chart. However, the second single, "California Dreamin'", was released later in 1965 and quickly peaked at number 4 in the US, while in the UK, it peaked at number 23. The band's debut album, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears, was released in early 1966 and became the band's only number 1 album on the Billboard 200. The third and final single from their debut was "Monday, Monday", which became the band's only US number 1 hit. The song brought the band international success when it peaked at number 3 in the UK Singles Chart and the first number 1 in the Spanish Los 40 Principales chart. After featuring her solo act in a sold-out two-week engagement at the London Palladium in July 1974, Elliot died of a heart attack in a London flat owned by Harry Nilsson following the closing night performance on July 29. The night before she died, she had called Michelle in Los Angeles to tell her how thrilled she was about getting standing ovations. Michelle Phillips says that Cass Elliot "died a very happy woman." Her former band mates and Lou Adler all attended her funeral in Los Angeles. At the height of her solo career in 1974, Elliot performed two weeks of sold-out concerts at the London Palladium. She telephoned Michelle Phillips after the final concert on July 28, elated that she had received standing ovations each night. She then retired for the evening, and died in her sleep at age 32. Sources state her death was due to a heart attack. Elliot died in a London flat, No. 12 at 9 Curzon Place, Shepherd Market, Mayfair, which was on loan from singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson. Four years later, The Who's drummer Keith Moon died in the same flat at the same age. Elliot was entombed in Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles <a href="http://photobucket.com/images/cass%20elliot" target="_blank"><img src="http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh157/drunkendesigner0/images-5.jpg" border="0" alt="cass elliot photo: Mama Cass Elliot images-5.jpg"/></a> <a href="http://photobucket.com/images/casselliot" target="_blank"><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i175/PaulLev/CassElliot.jpg" border="0" alt="casselliot photo: great 60s group CassElliot.jpg"/></a>
