The sweet-toned, full-bodied voice of Mama Cass Elliot was a defining component of the Mamas and the Papas’ folk-pop sound. After the group’s break-up in 1968, she launched herself as a solo artist with moderate success. Mama’s Big Ones features hits from her tenure with her old group along with solo singles and album tracks. While some of these tunes seem like stale bubblegum today, the hippie idealism and melodic buoyancy of the best songs are still fun to experience. Of particular note are two Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil tunes, “Make Your Own Kind Of Music” and “It’s Getting Better” — these ultra-catchy odes to personal integrity and slow-building romance are absolutely lovable. “New World Coming” (a bouncy expression of early ‘70s optimism) and “The Good Times Are Coming” (a hopeless dreamer’s credo) are nearly as good. The Mamas and the Papas tracks — “Words Of Love” and “Dream A Little Dream Of Me” — bring out her vaudevillian side. Mama’s Big Ones preserves the strongest moments from this gifted artist’s fitfully inspired career.
