I have heard a lot about The Mamas and the Papas being called an "LA band", as opposed to the San Francisco bands such as the Airplane. From what I understand, some claim that basically they were trying to reach a more mainstream audience, and not focus on the music so much as other bands.
I listen to them quite often, and don't really agree. I think they have musical merit of their own and some of there songs are comparable to the Airplane's.
Just wondering if anyone else liked The Mamas and the Papas, and how everybody felt them being called an LA band.
