Editorial Reviews

John re-formed the Mamas and the Papas in '81 with his daughter Mackenzie, Denny Doherty and Elaine "Spanky" McFarlane (Scott McKenzie later replaced Denny). They recorded many tracks (including fantastic new Phillips songs) but didn't release them; here are the best plus a CD of live ones! Includes Go Now!; Frankie; I Wish; Yachts; Kokomo; Not Too Cool ; live versions of Mamas & Papas classics, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Won't Believe Your Ears July 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was skeptical. There have been many attempts to release this CD. It has finally seen the light of day...and was well worth the wait. If you are a fan of the original group, you can close your eyes and just won't believe your ears. Great John Phillips compositions, but it's the harmonies that win out here. I originally didn't think Spanky Mcfarlane could pull it off..but she does, as does Mackenzie Phillips and Scott McKenzie. I downloaded the "extra" tunes from another site I can't mention here for fear of being deleted, and it is regrettable that Varese didn't include the Denny version of "Flowers" on this release, as it is far superior to their version and the highlight of the set as whole..just gorgeous. If you love the Mamas and the Papas..if you love John Phillips music..purchase now. The harmonies are just stunning. It is clear the care that went into this production. Love you, and miss you John!

4.0 out of 5 stars John & Denny in the 80's with Harmony August 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
At long last, after more than 2 decades , the music that the original Papas, John Phillips and Denny Doherty created in the 80's with Spanky McFarlane, Mackenzie Phillips & Scott McKenzie has been released. From the first track, it is the sound of Denny's voice on the only oldie on here, the Moody Blues' GO NOW, that welcomes you to that one of a kind sound on so many original Mamas & Papas hits. Denny & John are the key members here, and their songs are the best on the new CD. It is not The Mamas & The Papas of the 60's, so if you think of it more as a new project that John & Denny were working with, it all fits together better. The harmonies & vocals are good, but Spanky & Mackenzie are not Cass & Michelle . It's contemporary for the 80's and even today. There are a bunch of styles on here, most notably some world music sounds on tracks like SHE GOT SHE [ THE GAME OF LOVE ] , KWELA [ both sung by John ] and YACHTS [ another lead by Denny ]. The different genres are most welcome , and the original material illustrates that John still had a lot of fresh ideas and songs in him. Some of the songs I had known before from hearing the new group perform them in concert in the 80's, such as BABIES , and NOT TOO COOL, one of the best group sung efforts on here. It's a dark song that offers a hint of John's years of drug abuse. He got a great song out of it with NOT TOO COOL. Spanky gets the lead on LOVE IS COMING BACK, a remake of the song on Genevieve Waite's 1974 album, done in more honky tonk style, plus another lead on FLOWERS, written by John & Genevieve. Mackenzie's LOVE SONG was very familiar as it was a live concert staple for years. The studio version is not as fully charged as it could have been. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the 1980's Reformed M's & P's ! July 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Phillips '66 was sad to listen to.It sounded flat and spent.This cd ,'Many Mamas & Many Papas',is wonderful.It's the best of their recordings from the 1980s.I'm glad it was finally released.The Mama's and the Papa's music is the very essense of the best of 60's California pop music.If your a fan of John Phillips,Spanky MacFarland,Scott MacKenzie,Mac Phillips and Denny Doherty;this is the perfect cd collection.
