Hello! I'm new here and couldn't resist posting my response to this. This is a great site!
I've been a big Mamas and Papas fan since high school about 15 years ago. I recently got into them again when I discovered some old Cass videos on Youtube, and am now reading the Cass bio by Eddi Fiegel.

Here are my favorite songs by M&P's:
No Salt on Her Tail
California Dreamin'
Words of Love
Straight Shooter
Twelve Thirty
Did You Ever Want to Cry
Strange Young Girls
Midnight Voyage

My favorite album overall is probably "The Mamas & The Papas."

My favorite Cass solo song is "California Earthquake." Absolutely love that one.

Welcome to the site Blinker - the Mamas and Papas 2nd album is my favorite one too! I have the original album which my mom gave me and just recently was able to get a brand new copy of the CD on Amazon.com. I love all the songs on that album - especially "My Heart Stood Still", "I Saw Her Again" and my two favorite Cass leads - "Words of Love" and "Dancing in the Streets".

I couldn't agree more!

Other than that "Twist and Shout", "No Dough", "Snowqueen of Texas", "The In Crowd", "Dedicated to the One I Love", "Frustration" ( even though it's an instrumental), "Safe in my Garden" and "Blueberries for Breakfast"

My favorite album is a Deliver

Hi, this is my first post. I've loved TM&TP since I discovered them in 1980. My fave has always been California Dreamin. Those awesome harmonies and that wonderful melody had such an effect on me when I first heard it. Go where you wanna go, Monday Monday, and Dedicated are among my other faves, but I also love the tracks that weren't hits such as Dancing Bear, No salt on her tail, Mansions, Rooms. I love all tracks except one. John's music box! Deliver would have been so much better if it had ended with Did you ever want to cry? I have recently bought the Complete Anthology and have heard the single version of Words of Love for the first time which I love! I will never tire of listening to TM&TP. It always gives me a warm glow whenever I hear them. :) Rich.
