Michelle singing solo on "Mike Douglas Show"!

Postby jcg » Sat Mar 06, 2010 12:09 am

I found this on youtube and wanted to pass it on. She's singing "No Love Today" in 1976.
It's not mine...just wanted to share. Enjoy!

Hi JC,
Thanks for posting that clip. I love it! As you probably already know, that song was in soundtrack to the movie Mother, Jugs, and Speed, with Bill Cosby, Raquel Welch, and Harvey Keitel. It's a pretty good movie in my humble opinion. You can hear the song in the movie when Welch's character and Keitel's character are are having a serious discussion.
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

Hi Nicole,

You never disappoint!

Being a relatively newcomer to the Mamas and Papas world, and primarily enamored of Cass, I didn't know about the Mother Jugs and Speed connection. I loved the film when I was a wee tot and remember thinking of Michelle as the knockout who looked like a slightly naughtier Sharon Tate! Thanks for the info!

thanks, I'd never heard this song, and she looks great too. she's not a powerhouse singer like Cass, but she can hold her own. she was clearly more than just a pretty face in the M and Ps. it's also interesting to hear her sing solo, to compare with the voices you hear on the M and P's albums, and with respect to the controversy over who sang what on the 2nd album, Jill or Michelle. - -- Glenn

Hi Glenn
I agree with you. That's why I posted the clip. I always had a hard time hearing Michelle on M & P songs - as Cass' clarion tone always dominates the mix. More so after I heard the Monterey Pop performance (where Michelle's microphone wasn't on). So it's great to hear her solo.

hi JC: right, and sometimes you think it's only Cass that you can hear on the M and Ps records, but I wonder if sometimes Michelle blended in so well and also imitated Cass that you think it's just Cass when it's really both of them. - Glenn

Glenn, you're spot on. To realise just how much Michelle's singing has improved over the years, listen to her on 'String Man' and on 'For the Love of Ivy" - she delivers some of those lyrics, as if Cass were singing through her.

Yes Nicole, it is good to hear from Eran again. I always knew he was cool by virtue of the fact that he's a real Michie fan.
