The Mamas And The Papas' 1966 debut, IF YOU CAN BELIEVE YOUR EYES AND EARS (reissued with the original uncensored cover, which features--gasp!--a toilet in the corner), is probably their best album.
It contains three timeless hit singles: "Go Where You Wanna Go," "Monday Monday," and "California Dreamin'," alongside a handful of originals and some excellent close-harmony covers, including the Beatles' "I Call Your Name," "Do You Wanna Dance," and a lovely take on the Drifters' "Spanish Harlem." As always, the terribly underrated Cass Elliott handles most of the vocals and does the best job. A true sunshine pop classic.
