240 – The Mama’s And The Papa’s – California Dreamin’ (1965)
Written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips
Produced by Lou Adler
Label – Dunhill
Written during a bitterly cold New York winter, “California Dreamin'” is one of the sunniest pop songs ever recorded. Superb harmonies, an excellent Alto Flute solo and a spare arrangement from Lou Adler which highlights the vocal melody as the star attraction.
