Cass was the star of the vocal group The Mamas & The Papas!
Mama Cass spent most of her time and had the most success with the band The Mamas & The Papas. A hugely successful vocal group between 1965 and 1968.
During this short period of time, The Mamas And The Papas became world-famous by getting eleven top 40 singles from five albums. In total, they sold over forty million copies worldwide.
Their most famous hits include Monday, Monday, California Dreamin’ and Dream A Little Dream Of Me.
After the band dispersed in 1972, Mama Cass pursued an acting career as well as a solo career.
In 1974, after a sold-out, two-week stint at the London Palladium, Mama Cass returned to flat No. 12 at 9 Curzon Place, Mayfair where she died in her sleep from a heart attack.
Two years later, The Who’s drummer Keith Moon died in the same flat.
Dream A Little Dream Of Me – Chords & Guitar Lessons
I’ve recorded Mama Cass classic version of Dream A Little Dream Of Me almost note for note.
That’s until the chorus kicks in. On the original recording, there is little guitar so this section has been arranged almost from scratch to work on one acoustic guitar.
Dream A Little Dream Of Me – Lyrics
Stars shining bright above you,
night breezes seem to whisper, “I love you”.
Birds singing in the sycamore tree,
dream a little dream of me.
