A beautiful copy of a terrific and very rare Mamas and Papas LP.

Background:  The Mamas & the Papas were quite popular in Japan, and several compilation LPs were issued there that were not released anywhere else.

All About the Mamas & the Papas was released in 1968 and contained tracks from the group’s first four albums, along with a Cass Elliott solo track, “California Earthquake.”

The LP has the same cover as the American LP Farewell to the First Golden Era, Vol. 2, but with a completely different track listing.

First issues of the album were issued on the Stateside label and were pressed on red vinyl.  The 1971 reissue was on the Probe label; those pressings were black vinyl only.

Tracks are:

  • California Earthquake
  • Monday Monday
  • For The Love Of Ivy
    You Baby
  • Twist And Shout
  • Glad To Be Unhappy
  • In Crowd
  • California Dreamin’
  • My Girl
  • Boys And Girls Together
  • Spanish Harlem
  • Do You Wanna Dance
  • Safe In My Garden
  • Dream A Little Dream Of Me
