Mama Cass Television Program

Detailed Synopsis:
2009 marks not only the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, but of The Mama Cass Television Program, a colorful 1969 ABC special that uniquely captured not only the free spirit of this iconic festival of music and love, but of the times and a decade of change.All Filmed as a pilot for a TV variety series, the show ヨ a joyous celebration of both music and モflower powerヤ ヨ never aired again, likely a victim of suit-and-tie network executives who tuned in (found it a bit too groovy) and tuned out. Joni Mitchell, John Sebastian and Mary Travers all join Mama Cass Elliot for a sing-along thatメs a flashback of ム60s music utopia. Features rare solo vocal performances by Cass ヨ who had announced a solo career the previous year ヨ of The Mamas and the Papasメ mega-hits California Dreaminメ and Monday, Monday. Also includes Cassメ solo renditions of Dream a Little Dream of Me, River of Life, I Can Dream Canメt I? and the Motown hit Dancing in the Street, as well as performances of Both Sides Now (Mitchell), And When I Die (Travers), I Shall Be Released (Elliot, Mitchell and Travers in a stirring rendition of thisBob Dylan song), Sheメs a Lady (Sebastian) and Darlinメ Companion (Elliot and Sebastian). Other guest stars include Buddy Hackett, Martin Landau and Barbara Bain in a pair of humorous sketches with Cass.

Cast: Buddy Hackett, Martin Landau and Barbara Bain
Special Features:

* A duet by Cass and Sammy Davis, Jr. of I Dig Rock And Roll Music
* and a new interview with John Sebastian who remembers his friend Cass (who passed away in 1974) and The Mamas and the Papas (which split for the final time in 1971).

I already ordered two copies (one for me and one for a friend of mine).

Be sure and pick up as many copies as you can to show that Cass Elliot products WILL sell and that the fans WANT them!
