Weird Music - If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears






So which group called their debut album If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears?  The Mamas and the Papas, that's who!

The year was 1966.  As you can see the cover is quirky as well – they are all in a bath fully dressed with the adjacent toilet in full view.  This was the original cover – which was withdrawn because of complaints that it was indecent – not by today's standards!  I suspect Mama Cass was behind the concept of the cover – it lets her avoid showing her body while showing off the legs of her female counterpart.

There are some great tracks on the album – including Monday, Monday and California Dreamin'.  There is no clue in the names of the tracks as to why the album had such a weird title.
