Thoughts

I didn’t really know anything about the M&Ps before I started listening to this, and did a bit of (admittedly Wikipedia) background reading - seems like they were just as chaotic and full of drama as Fleetwood Mac, who surely hold the crown for such things. I couldn’t believe, also that Mama Cass comes from this band, which makes perfect sense but still…

Anyway, as an album, it’s great. That nice 60s feeling, with some songs that really stand the test of time. Monday, Monday could be written today! Great voices, lovely harmonies, good times!
