In my crystal ball, I envision that you've passed by this title many of times in the stacks or more likely when rifling through the 'bargain' bins. Judging from the pedestrian off-white and sepia toned cover, you pass it by. Unfortunately for you, this is probably the only Mamas and Papas ever worth album getting, especially since you never really cared for the band or their very commercial (and overplayed) hits.
People Like Us, No Dough, Snow Queen of Texas, Lady Genevieve, European Blueboy, and Shooting Star are a few of the all original songs that you will come to love.

This album has worn a lot better than people gave it credit for upon initial release. I remember Dave Marsh of Rolling Stone and Robert Christgau absolutely savaging this record when it came out - underservedly, really. Yes, it was a last gasp - it came years after the group's official "breakup" and had the scent of a money grab at first. Papa John's lyrics weren't as incisive as they once had been; you could see the toll the H had been taking on him, both musically (and personally, in the cover photos). Yes, it had that slick '70s soft-rock sheen. But the writing was still great; the musicianship impeccable, and Cass & Michelle's soaring harmonies completely intact. And there are gems here - "Snowqueen of Texas", "Step Out", and even the throwaway "Pacific Coast Highway", an ode to better days. If you're a Mamas & Papas fan and don't have this in your collection, get it - otherwise you're missing the coda to their incredible song.
