Notes: The Great Mamas & Papas - Recorded in 1982, this version of the Mamas and Papas includes John Phillips, Dennis Doherty, MacKenzie Phillips, and Spankly McFarlane. Don't expect traditional M & P. Definately alternative versions of their hits. They could have used John vocally (!!!), but his drumming is very much a contribution. Band consists of Johnny Chito (or Kato??) (organ), Duke ?? (bass), Shane Fountaine (guitar), ?? Fountaine (piano), and Johnny Cowsill (drums).
