Dust jacket notes: "'California Dreamin''... 'Monday, Monday'...'Creeque Alley'...'Go Where You Wanna Go'... the music of The Mamas and the Papas captured the heady, freewheeling, free-loving spirit of the 1960s. Now for the first time, Michelle Phillips, a founding member of The Mamas and the Papas, gives an intimate, in-depth portrait of the superstar group that personified and led America's Love Generation. It's all here: the years of poverty, struggle, and obscurity...the fateful first meeting with record producer Lou Adler...the incredible burst of work and creativity that led to their first smash album...the band's meteoric rise to stardom ('Monday, Monday' sold 160,000 copies the first day it was released)...the wildly decadent life-style that embraced LSD and free love...the burnout, the arguments, and the final bitterness and breakup of the band. In California Dreamin', Michelle Phillips reveals her own gripping story, from her tumultuous marriage at seventeen to the band's leader John Phillips, to her constant infatuations with other men and his growing drug problem. You'll enter the world of history-making recording sessions, and encounters with Bob Dylan; Jimi Hendrix; Joan Baez; Peter, Paul, and Mary; John Sebastian; Jim McGuinn; and others.. You'll follow the group on grueling cross-country tours and to reckless West Coast parties where the drugs flowed and fans flocked. You'll meet John and Denny, the 'papas' of the band - and learn how Michelle loved them both. You'll discover the true story of hippie queen Mama Cass Elliott, her strength of character, her fierce loves and intense dislikes, her long friendship with Michelle that would survive, jealousy, rivalry, and bitter feuds. Most of all, California Dreamin' describes what it was really like to live at the center of the rock music scene in the 1960s..."

From Publishers Weekly:

The Mamas and the Papas were a somewhat motley-looking group who sang in pleasing four-part harmony and gave voice to the feelings of many young adults in the 1960s. The musical genius behind the group was John Phillips. In 1961, before the group was formed, teenaged Michelle Gilliam met Phillips, the two fell in love, lived together and eventually married. Michelle here tells the story of her life, particularly the years with John and with The Mamas and the Papas. She tells the story engagingly, giving us excellent portraits of the group's members: the charismatic, freewheeling John; friendly Denny Doherty, with whom she had a brief affair; overweight, bright, unhappy Cass Elliott; and herself, in the center of the '60s cultural upheaval. Her autobiography is published almost simultaneously with her husband's (Papa John, reviewed in Forecasts Apr. 18). Although hers is a sanitized account compared to John's, she is more successful at putting events into historical context. Photos not seen by PW.
