“Mama” Cass Elliot has earned her star!  As the sole recipient of the posthumous award in the musical category for a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, this spring will mark the opportunity for Cass’ star to actually be placed.

Cass Elliot once said she went into show business because people looked like they were having a good time!  “When you’re on stage you got to do it.”  And she did it. Her unmistakable voice as a founding member of The Mamas and The Papas in songs like California Dreamin’, Monday Monday and Dream a Little Dream of Me, catapulted her into the iconography of the 1960’s.  In the 1970s she was a fixture in television on shows like The Carol Burnett Show, The Julie Andrews Hour and she was a frequent guest host for The Tonight Show. Hosting two television specials of her own, she also continued with live acts and was just finishing a triumphant engagement at The London Palladium when she died suddenly and tragically in 1974.

The recipient of the star is responsible for paying $40,000 for the installation and lifetime upkeep of the star.  You can help cement her residence permanently on one of the most visible walkways in the world, while also introducing her magic to fans for generations to come.  And we need your support and patronage to help make this honor happen.

Your chance to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate is available through Patreon. Patrons will have access to exclusive photos and video, live chats with Cass' daughter Owen and people who knew and loved her, and special exclusive tokens of recognition for supporting Cass' legacy.

Cass Elliot / Don't Call Me Mama Anymore + Rarities
Real Gone Music - It is very hard to believe, but July 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Cass Elliot’s passing, and we at Real Gone are commemorating the occasion with a deluxe reissue of the great lady’s final album, garnished with five bonus tracks.

As the title indicates, 1973’s Don’t Call Me Anymore marked a real break with Elliot’s previous incarnation as Mama Cass of the Mamas and the Papas; at RCA Records, Cass was able to take control of her recording career, choosing songs that she wanted to sing. During this time, Cass decided to strike off in a new direction as a cabaret singer and put together a live show that barnstormed the U.S., with a particularly successful run in Las Vegas. This record, recorded over two nights at the renowned Mister Kelly’s night club in Chicago, captured Cass reveling in her newfound role as an entertainer and singer of show tunes (“Extraordinary” from Pippin) and standards (“I’ll Be Seeing You”) as well as new songs like “I’m Coming to the Best Part of My Life” and the title tune. Our deluxe reissue of this wildly entertaining album—released with the full support of Cass’ daughter Owen Elliot—offers five bonus tracks representing her complete final recordings, including the unreleased album outtakes “Make Your Own Kind of Music/Dream a Little Dream of Me/New World Coming” and “Don’t Make Me a Memory,” plus the RCA single tracks of “Listen to the World” and “I Think a Lot About You,” and a motion picture tune, “Theme from L’Amour.”

The package features rare photos and liner notes by Cass Elliot expert Richard Barton Campbell, with remastering at Battery Studios in New York. There’s no telling how far Cass would have gone if she had had the opportunity to fully pursue this new artistic direction—Don’t Call Me Mama Anymore is the final statement of a true icon whose career was cut short way too soon.

The Mamas & The Papas / A Gathering Of Flowers
Real Gone Music - Though A Gathering of Flowers was put together by ABC/Dunhill Records in 1970 immediately after the demise of the Mamas & The Papas, it was much, much more than the typical record label greatest hits collection cash-in. Not only did the 20-song double-album include classic ‘60s cuts like “California Dreamin’,” “Monday, Monday,” “I Saw Her Again,” “I Call Your Name,” “Creeque Alley” and “Dedicated to the One I Love,” but it served as something of an audio documentary of the band, offering rehearsals, outtakes and interview snippets from John Phillips and Cass Elliot in between the tunes. The boxed-set also offered a photo-packed, 16 page booklet with excellent liner notes by Andy Wickham alongside the dozens of rare images, all of which we have reproduced here on Real Gone Music for this historic collection’s CD debut. Composed of four outsized personalities – Cass Elliot, John Phillips, Michelle Phillips and Denny Doherty – the Mamas & The Papas were always about more than just the music; A Gathering of Flowers preserves and presents their full legacy better than any single-CD anthology available. Remastered from the original tapes by Mike Milchner at SonicVision.
