The Mugwumps

This week our “Pick” is going to Discogs. It’s The Mugwumps, who are the Mugwumps you might ask. Well, in the summer of 1964, before they were part of the Mamas and the Papas, Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty along with Jim Hendricks (The Lamp of Childhood) and Zal Yanovsky (The Lovin’ Spoonful) got together to record these nine songs. In these early recordings it is easy to see that these people were on their way to greatness. It is folk, pop and full of heart.
