Thanks Loren.  I Call Your Name is my favorite Mamas & Papas, and Cass is the best part of it.

Hello Steph.  Good day so far. Hope yours is too

Loren - Thanks a bunch.  Another good one.

I just read that Cass Eliot hated to be called 'Mama Cass.' Anyone know if that's true?

Oh cool - thanks Loren - you posted that as I was posting!

Awesome.

Hi James! Hope your day is going well.

Cool music Flying Atheist - enjoyed your posts. I've heard those Mamas & The Papas songs. Thanks!

Peace, love and happiness to all of you!

lol, I thought you were just asking nicely for love and happiness.  PLEASE!  That works too.

Okay, so long as we're talkin' about Mamas and Papas and especially Cass Elliott, let's pull THIS out:

Personally, I think the Beatles would have approved.

Yeah, that new world sounds pretty nice, doesn't it?  Even though I was just a young kid in the 60's/70's, the pervasive influence of the Hippie culture definitely had an impact on forming my adult disposition.  Please, Love and Happiness, Baby!

So true. Well please educating me!

PS - I wish that 'new world' would come already.

James, one of the great things about being young is discovering something new, even if it's old!!  

Cass Elliot ("Mama Cass" from the iconic singing group The Mamas and the Papas) embarked on a very successful solo career after the breakup of The Mamas and the Papas.  Sadly, she died of a heart attack in London at age 32.  She was a great singer.
