Deliver is the third album by The Mamas & the Papas, released in 1967. It charted at #2 in Billboard's "Top Pop" albums for 1967. Three of the album's singles ranked in the "Pop Singles" chart: "Dedicated to the One I Love" at #2, "Creeque Alley" at #5 and "Look Through My Window" at #24.
The album was first issued on CD in 1988 (MCAD-31044) and is included in its entirety on All the Leaves Are Brown, a retrospective compilation of the band's first four albums and various singles.
The album's title was an in-joke among the group, as recording commenced shortly after Cass Elliot gave birth to her daughter, Owen. Given the social stigma of unwed mothers at the time, both the pregnancy and the birth had been kept a closely guarded secret from the public, and the LP's name was meant to imply that Cass and the others had "delivered" a newborn creative creation.
The Mamas & the Papas (credited as The Mama's and the Papa's on the debut album cover and sometimes shortened to Mamas and Papas) were a Canadian/American vocal group of the 1960s (Denny Doherty was from Canada). The group recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968 with a short reunion in 1971, releasing five albums and 11 Top 40 hit singles. They have sold nearly 40 million records worldwide.
Their signature sound was based on four-part male/female vocal harmonies arranged by John Phillips, the band's songwriter who managed to "leave the folk music behind" and blend his writing with the new "beat" sound in an unprecedented mode.
Comes with pad, good original foil splice and a 7-day money back.
