Cass' fellow Mamas & Papas band mate Papa John Phillips passed away March 18, 2001.  Check out Pay Pack & Follow, the album he did with the Rolling StonesAlso check out his new solo album Phillips 66. 

 


Never-before-released music written and performed by John Phillips from his long-lost musical Man On The Moon (a/k/a Space).

The release is an enhanced CD containing 34 previously unreleased original John Phillips songs performed by John and his Celestial Choir, featuring Genevieve Waite, Monique Van Vooren, and Denny Doherty.

Includes live recordings of the show made by Andy Warhol from the audience at the Little Theatre in 1975, and studio tracks from the 1974 Phillips-produced rare cult classic Genevieve Waite album, “Romance Is On The Rise.”



This is the long-lost album that John Phillips recorded as the first solo artist signed to Rolling Stones Records in 1976. Produced by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the album reunited them in the studio for the first time with ex-Stones member Mick Taylor and also features his replacement, Ron Wood. Pussycat presents for the first time the recently-located original ‘70s mix of the album, together with newly-discovered outtakes and material from the 1976 sessions for Phillips’s soundtrack to the film The Man Who Fell To Earth, starring David Bowie.



Jack Of Diamonds is the second release in the ongoing “Papa John Phillips Presents” album series, following last year’s acclaimed reissue of his 1970 debut solo album, "John, The Wolfking Of L.A."
The album features a stellar group of musicians from the era, including members of The Crusaders (Wilton Felder, Larry Carlton and Joe Sample), Jim Gordon (Traffic, Derek and the Dominos), Van Dyke Parks (The Beach Boys’ Smile album), Alan Estes (The Mothers Of Invention) and Mamas & Papas stalwarts, Hal Blaine and Joe Osborn.

Included as bonus tracks are songs from some of the other projects John was working on between 1970 and 1973, including songs intended for the final Mamas & Papas’ studio album, "People Like Us", the soundtrack to the Robert Altman film Phillips co-produced with Lou Adler, Brewster McCloud, and an original film and theater project called Space (Man On The Moon), produced by Andy Warhol.
