The Mamas And The Papas If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears on Mono LP

Upon its release in 1966, the Mamas and the Papas’ debut LP If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears introduced a fresh new sound that would permanently alter the face of contemporary popular music. Leader John Phillips’ visionary producing, arranging and songwriting abilities combined with the quartet’s breathtaking harmonies to make music that was both effortlessly accessible and creatively adventurous. The album quickly topped the Billboard  album chart, bringing folk-rock into the pop mainstream and making Phillips, his then-wife Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty and Cass Elliot into instant multimedia celebrities. In the years since its release, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears has come to be regarded as one of the finest pop albums of the ’60s and one of the best debut releases ever, as evidenced by its ranking at Number 127 on Rolling Stone’s list of the '500 Greatest Albums of All Time.'

If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears was the product of Lou Adler’s visionary production, Phillips’ savvy studio mastery and the foursome’s extended period of musical woodshedding in the Virgin Islands. The months of meticulous rehearsals paid off in the group’s ability to emerge as a fully-formed musical unit right out of the box, delivering such instant classics as “California Dreamin’,” “Monday, Monday” and “Go Where You Wanna Go” to the willing ears of record buyers and radio listeners.

At the time of If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears initial release, the presence of a toilet in the periphery of the album’s cover photo caused faint-hearted moral guardians to pressure the group’s record company to excise the offending fixture from subsequent pressings of the album. Sundazed’s new vinyl edition of If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears restores the rare, long-missing “toilet” cover, and features the album’s superior original mono mix. It’s also mastered from the original analog tapes, and pressed on high-definition vinyl, the better to maintain the same joyous sense of discovery that listeners felt when first hearing this timeless gem in 1966.
