Before Adele, There Was Elliot: 40 Beautiful Pics of Mama Cass in the 1960s and Early '70s

Born 1941 as Ellen Naomi Cohen in Baltimore, Maryland, American singer and actress Cass Elliot was also known as Mama Cass who is best known for having been a member of The Mamas & the Papas.


After the group broke up, she released five solo albums. Her most successful recording during this period was 1968's "Dream a Little Dream of Me" from her solo album of the same name, released by Dunhill Records, though it had originally been released earlier that year on the album The Papas & the Mamas Presented By The Mamas and the Papas.

Elliot appeared in two television variety specials: The Mama Cass Television Program (ABC, 1969) and Don't Call Me Mama Anymore (CBS, 1973). She was a regular guest on TV talk shows and variety shows in the early 1970s.

Elliot died in her sleep at the London flat where she was staying because of heart failure, at the age of 32.

In 1998, she was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her work with the Mamas & the Papas.

  3. There's really no similarity between their singing styles or their paths to fame, so the only thing one can assume the curators of this collection feel connects the two is a particular aspect of their respective physical appearances (to be polite). Whomever those people are, they risk getting kicked out of the Virtue Signaling Millennials club with this.
