Big Three Featuring Mama Cass - Big Three Featuring Mama Cass Big Three Featuring Mama Cass
Pop New - LP SR 25361 Roulette
Sealed 1967 Stereo Original. “The Most Remarkable Aspect Of These Recordings Is The Realization That Cass Elliot Seemed To Have A Knack For Finding Solid Accompanists And Collaborators Long Before She Hooked Up With John Phillips, Denny Doherty, Et Al. James Hendricks And Tim Rose Were, If Anything, More Talented Vocally And Technically More Proficient Than Phillips Might've Been At The Time That Some Of These Recordings Were Made -- Curiously, The Big Three Also Covered "I May Be Right," A Song Written By Phillips' Fellow Journeymen Member Dick Weissman. The Tendency Is To Lump The Big Three In With Peter, Paul & Mary, But There Were Differences That Probably Matter More Now To Anyone Grabbing This Because Of Cass Elliot's Presence. The Hard, Bluesy "Young Girl's Lament" And "Wild Women" (Which Is Probably Cass Elliot's Greatest Vocal Showcase From This Period In Her Career) Stand In Contrast To Ethereal Folk Numbers Like "Winken, Blinken, Nod” And Show A Group With More Range Than PPM Usually Explored. Hendricks And Rose Also Show An Affinity For The Blues On Those Songs And On "The Banjo Song," Which, In Tandem With Elliot's Singing, Ought To Have Carried The Big Three Further Than They Got. In Short, There's More Than Historical Interest To Be Gleaned From These Recordings, And Much Better Music Than One Usually Finds From The "Pre-History" Of A Major Group.” Brude Eder, All Music Guide.... more details
