Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/11/03, p.126
Ranked #127 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "[S]unshine pop with a rustic heart, the Beach Boys for folkies."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.94
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]ll glorious harmonies and uplifting arrangements -- the four-piece put their stamp on everything, re-inventing the originals by inverting the mood."

Product Description:

The Mamas & The Papas: John Phillips (vocals, guitar); Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty, "Mama Cass" Elliot (vocals).
Additional personnel includes: Peter Pilafian (electric violin); P.F. Sloan, Hal Blaine, Larry Knechtel, Joe Osborn.
Includes liner notes by Andy Wickham, Lou Adler and Andy McKaie.
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.
