Bath and bog
Bath, no bog
London may have been swinging and California may well have have been dreaming, but in 1966 there was no way you could release an album with four people in a bath, clothed or unclothed, on the cover and get away with it. Nor could it have a lavatory in the foreground. And thus a collectors item was born.
But what a debut album The Mamas & The Papas' If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears was. Aside from the monster hit singles, Monday Monday & California Dreaming and John Lennon's I Call Your Name, it also contained a sassy cover of The In Crowd. Pass the soap.
