Song of the day: Mama Cass- Dream A Little Dream Of Me

dreamalittledream

This song has a long history, starting in 1931, when it was written. It then was recorded for the first time, by Ozzie Nelson. Success in these years was not noted down, so no-one knows if it has been successful: the fifties brought lots of recordings, by Frankie Laine, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and many others. In 1968 the song was recorded again, this time by Mama Cass, who was a member of the Mamas and the Papas. They had already sung the song a few times, but now they would put it on record. Since the band was on the point of breaking up, the song was not credited to the Mamas and the Papas, but to Mama Cass with the Mamas and the Papas. It would make number 12 in the US and number 11 in the UK. Enjoy
