been playing this selection over and over from the new "Many Mamas Many Papas" cd. Does it get any better than this?? I've never been the biggest Scott McKenzie fan, but this track is simply amazing. Any fan here, who wants to hear the Mamas and the Papas harmonies they grew up with should listen to this song.

I've never been the biggest Scott McKenzie fan either, and I'm Scott McKenzie.

I'm glad you like "Frankie". John Phillips and I worked for months on that song, and Worth Banner, a friend of ours in Virginia Beach helped with the bridge. ("roof to roof, steppin' high," etc)

After I finished my vocal at Record Plant I was so out of breath I almost collapsed. John was laughing, and I said, "Who the hell do I think I am?" At almost 72 years old, I still haven't figured that out.

Thanks again, Paulie - I think;o)

You're an original. Please write your memoirs. Then of course sign my copy.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for posting. I agree, it's great to have you here. I agree with John and Adam, you should definitely write a book.

Scott!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an honor! Thanks, Man! ok...I thought about my comment, and I couldn't think of anything negative, just that I never went out of my way to buy your music (aside from "San Francisco" and "Like An Old Time Movie"..I have the Ode singles somewhere around the attic). I recently purchased "Anthology" and, I'm embarassed to admit I didn't realize the full extent of your recording history. Very impressive!
I saw you with the NEW Mamas and Papas in NYC sometime in the late 80's or early 90's. It was in the west village, perhaps the Bitter End? It was You, Denny, Mackenzie, and Spanky. You guys rocked. I especially remember "Got A Feelin"..really brought me to tears.
Anyhow, thanks so much for your contribution to this new (to me, anyway) CD. I love your vocals and wish you were all back together performing those great harmonies today.

Also, Scott..thanks for the backround "Frankie" info. That bridge is a knockout! I find myself singing it walking the streets. So many great twists and turns there. Just gorgeous.
