Mama Cass Elliot - Songs


Although Cass Elliot (born Ellen Naomi Cohen, September 19, 1941 - July 29, 1974) is best remembered as one of the key members of the famed group, The Mamas & The Papas, she also had a highly successful solo career that began in the late 1960s (which was tragically cut short by her untimely passing). Prior to joining The Mamas & The Papas, she had been a member of The Big Three and The Mugwumps. As a solo artist, she first recorded as Mama Cass until 1969, then as Mama Cass Elliot. Around the early 1970s, she dropped the "Mama" title completely and went by Cass Elliot.

Cass Elliot's best known songs include "Dream A Little Dream Of Me" (1968, with the Mamas and the Papas as backup vocals), "It's Getting Better" (1969), and "Make You Own Kind Of Music" (1969). She released five solo albums, toured and performed extensively, and made numerous TV appearances. While on tour in London, Cass Elliot died at age 32 in her sleep of a heart attack.
