Hi, there's a new dvd featuring Cass. It's a compilation of the Andy Williams show during 1966 and 1968, and Cass is featured singing a medley of Words of Love and You've got your troubles along with A.W.
Great!

I really enjoyed it-Cass with her usual presence and in great voice! If it was the same show in which she sang Joni Mitchell's 'I Had A King', it's funny because I remember her doing that, but I didn't remember this duet.

I think it was the first Cass solo tv appearance after the break up wit the Mamas & the Papas.
It was on april 1968.

Hi Caden!
I've always read that the M&P broke up when they finished their 4th LP, about february-march 1968. In fact, I think Cass did her first solo album during that summer.

No, the 4th LP was released in february-march 1968.
And the first Cass solo album was released in october 1968, not in the summer (my mistake).

I've just seen the duet with Andy Williams, and it's great!
Cass shows her comic talent, and her voice, once more, is amazing.
Andy Williams introduced her as Cass Elliot, and said it was her first solo performance.

in case we're being picky, the Papas and Mamas album (not CD yet!) was released in May 1968. I remember because it came out around my birthday.... Maybe the official release date was April, but it wasn't in stores until mid-May. I remember the local department store had it prominently displayed in multiple copies in a special rack, along with Simon and Garfunkel's Bookends album. best-- Glenn

I agree, GlennS. I remember the album came out a couple of weeks before the end of the 1968 school year. It was mental torture having to spend all day that day in school knowing the album was waiting at the store.

As soon as the school day was over, my friend and I walked (ran?) the three miles to the shopping center. It was a great day.
