Hi pufinstuf,
I would try Youtube to see if it's there. I know there was a clip shown in the dcumentary from 1988 Straight Shooter. I'm not sure where else it would be, Hope this helps.
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

Could be mistaken but I think the clip of Twelve Thirty in the 1988 Documentary was from Sullivan

Richard is correct - the clip of "Twelve Thirty" was performed on their third and final appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show - September 24, 1967. They also did a medley of their hits and told Ed that they were sailing to Europe on The France.

Hope that helps!

Hi Pufnstuf,

I have been searching for some years for the performance of 'Twelve Thirty' on Bandstand, but I haven't found it yet. I don't think by now it's released on DVD.

The performance of the song on the 'Straight Shooter' biography is from The Ed Sullivan Show, 24/9/67, their final TV appearance as a group. That day they also played a medley of Monday, Monday - I Call your name - California dreamin' cause some group cancelled their appearance on the show so the Mamas & The Papas had more time in the show.

Hi everyone,
I apologize for the mix-up. Thank you all for the posts and the corrections. Thank you, Alby for the inofrmation about the M and P's appearance on the Sullivan show. I did not know that another group had cancelled that day, thus leaving the Mand Ps more time. interesting bit of information. Have a great weekend. :D
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

I saw the last Sullivan appearance "live" when I was a kid, and I remember the week before that Ed said that next week's show would include the Mamas and Papas' "farewell to show business", which was a big shock to hear. I assumed that the medley they did was part of that "farewell," and it looked well planned, with fancy props, sets, costumes, etc. By the way it seems that Cass is singing live in that medley.
