I like them a lot.

'Glad to be Unhappy' and 'Words Of Love' are my two favorites by them.

Oh, I remember being a 10-11 year old boy and listening to California Dreamin' all the time. I loved that song and I still like it.
They were pretty good. What a shame about Mama Cass's dead. Was that tragic or comedy? I don't know.  ::)

The ham sandwhich thing is a myth. She died of a heart attack. So I guess tragedy wins.

Good band, but they screwed up I Call Your Name and Twist And Shout.

This is the original version of 'California Dreamin'' by Barry McGuire (of 'Eve of Destruction' fame), with The Mamas & The Papas on backing vocals.

I heard this version, BARRY McGUIRE'S vocals just ruins the song. The music sounds exactly the same as THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS version. I used to think that this song was a MAMAS AND THE PAPAS song, hear it for yourself.
