    If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears (Mono) (Awaiting Repress)

    Ranked 127/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Upon its release in 1966, the Mamas and the Papas debut LP If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears introduced a fresh new sound that would permanently alter the face of contemporary popular music. Leader John Phillips visionary producing, arranging and songwriting abilities combined with the quartets breathtaking harmonies to make music that was both effortlessly accessible and creatively adventurous. The album quickly topped the Billboard album chart, bringing folk-rock into the pop mainstream and making Phillips, his then-wife Michelle Phillips, Denny Doherty and Cass Elliot into instant multimedia celebrities. In the years since its release, If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears has come to be regarded as one of the finest pop albums of the 60s and one of the best debut releases ever.


    If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears was the product of Lou Adlers visionary production, Phillips savvy studio mastery and the foursomes extended period of musical woodshedding in the Virgin Islands. The months of meticulous rehearsals paid off in the groups ability to emerge as a fully-formed musical unit right out of the box, delivering such instant classics as California Dreamin, Monday, Monday and Go Where You Wanna Go to the willing ears of record buyers and radio listeners.


    At the time of If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears initial release, the presence of a toilet in the periphery of the albums cover photo caused faint-hearted moral guardians to pressure the groups record company to excise the offending fixture from subsequent pressings of the album. Sundazeds new vinyl edition of If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears restores the rare, long-missing toilet cover, and features the albums superior original mono mix. Its also mastered from the original analog tapes, and pressed on high-definition vinylthe better to maintain the same joyous sense of discovery that listeners felt when first hearing this timeless gem in 1966.

    Music On Vinyl proudly presents a second release of the COLLECTED albums. The new albums will focus on memorable artists with almost a life span of original intriguing music, covering a timeless musical period!

    The Mamas & The Papas were formed by husband and wife John and Michelle Phillips, formerly of The New Journeymen, and Denny Doherty, formerly of The Mugwumps. The last member to join was Cass Elliot, Doherty's bandmate in The Mugwumps. The group considered calling itself The Magic Cyrcle before switching to The Mamas and the Papas as apparently inspired by the Hells Angels, whose female associates were called mamas.

    They released a total of five studio albums and seventeen singles over a four-year period, six of which made the Billboard top ten, and sold close to 40 million records worldwide. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 for their contributions to the music industry.

    The band's first single, Go Where You Wanna Go, was released in 1965. The second single, California Dreamin', was released later in 1965 and quickly peaked in the charts. The band's album, If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears, was released in March 1966 and became the band's only number 1 album on the Billboard 200. The third and final single from their debut was Monday, Monday, which became the band's only US number 1 hit. The song brought the band international success.

    In 1966 they recorded their second album The Mamas And The Papas. I Saw Her Again was the first single from the album before release. When the album was released in 1966, it peaked at number four in the US, continuing the band's success. Words of Love was released as the second single and Dancing in the Street was released as the third and final single.

    Deliver came in the autumn of 1966. The album featured the singles Look Through My Window, Dedicated To The One I Love and Creeque Alley. Shortly afterward, a non-album single called Glad to be Unhappy was released.

    Mama Cass Elliot had a successful solo career becoming popular with hits such as Make Your Own Kind of Music and It's Getting Better.

    COLLECTED is a perfect overview of the multiple classic hits and tracks throughout the career of The Mamas & The Papas and complimented with several popular tracks by Mama Cass Elliot.

    Elan 35 Speakers - Black

    Elan 35 is the largest floor-stand speaker in this new range. Its design holds true to the purist principles followed by Epos. The two woofers work together at low frequencies to provide even higher sensitivity and power handling than the bookshelf models - in addition to delivering deeper and more powerful bass. We believe this design philosophy delivers the very best sound quality and musical performance for the money.


    Design

    Only the finest real-wood veneers are selected, book-matched and hand-laid. Several coats of polyurethane are applied and polished for a high-quality finish. To minimise unwanted vibration and coloration, extensive horizontal and vertical internal bracing are positioned inside the sturdy 18mm thick MDF cabinets. For optimum performance and stability, they should be fitted with the plinths supplied, together with the adjustable spiked feet, designed to decouple unwanted energy from the cabinet into the floor.


    Elan 35 is supplied with two baffles. The standard audiophile baffle with no visible fixing screws is fitted. If required, this can easily be swapped for the alternative cloth covered version, which is designed with the same profile as the naked baffle. Both types of baffle fit snugly around the tweeter and are both gently contoured around the woofers. So, unlike a conventional grille frame, there are no obstructions or sharp edges to cause reflections and sound colorations. The sound from both types of baffle will therefore sound similar.


    Tweeter

    Epos has developed a new soft-dome tweeter for the Epic and Elan range. By using virtual-performance CAD simulation tools, this new tweeter has been designed to achieve the accuracy and speed of a metal dome but with smoothness associated with a soft dome. It has a low resonance frequency, high sensitivity and extended high frequency response. With its 25mm (one inch) doped-fabric dome, short horn, high-temperature Ferro-fluid cooled voice-coil and shielded neodymium magnet, it is capable of high output levels for extended periods. Its natural high sensitivity is necessary to match the much increased output from the new bass and mid-range drivers.


    Mid-Bass

    A new long-throw eight-Ohm 187mm bass/mid driver has been developed for the Elan 35. Built on to an open-frame cast-aluminium alloy chassis, with a generously ventilated spider and vented magnet pole, this driver minimises colorations and distortions while allowing greater sound pressure levels than earlier Epos drivers.


    The bass/mid units feature a high-quality polypropylene cone and 'bullet'-shaped dust cap. These form a stiff yet pliable, well-damped structure which retains its shape, even at high power. This helps the woofers to produce a dynamic sound, with a very even frequency response and naturally smooth roll-off. The lower woofer is rolled-off by the crossover (filtered) so that it only plays bass, allowing the top mid-woofer to play bass and mid-range smoothly. The mid-woofer is rolled-off (filtered) at higher frequencies by the crossover to integrate properly with the tweeter. This is essentially a true 2 ½ way configuration.


    Both woofers are loaded by a very large diameter port, flared at both ends, to reduce turbulence. Together they produce plenty of clean deep bass coupled with a clear, smooth and detailed mid-range. In some rooms, or in placing them close to a wall or corner of a room, this may be too much, so we have supplied a custom foam bung to fit inside the entrance to the port to restrict the airflow and roll-off the bass earlier.


    A special feature of this floor-standing speaker is its high sensitive, making it suitable for use with a wide range of amplifiers, from as small as 10 watts to as large as 200 watts into 4 Ohms. So, tube fans should find this amp a perfect match.


    Crossover

    In typical Epos fashion, the Elan 35 crossover is as simple as we can make it: both the woofer and tweeter networks are 2nd order filters at 800Hz and 3.2kHz. To ensure the highest sound quality, all the resistors are metal oxide, all the capacitors are high-quality polypropylene-foil dielectric types and internal wiring uses proprietary solid-core wire covered in a sponge sheath to prevent vibration. Inductors are designed for low distortion even at high powers: air-core for the tweeter and an over-sized laminated-iron core for the woofer. All connections to drive units and crossover are hand soldered. The input terminals are bi-wirable, using a proprietary metal terminal panel with solid metal binding post equipped for 4mm plus and large spade lugs.


    Detail

    We paid great attention to every single minute detail during the design of the Elan 35, to give customers the best sound at the best price. It comes as no surprise that this elegant speaker will have you in awe from the first note. In addition to the astonishing bass power, detail and depth, sound stage, depth and detail are truly exceptional, with a clarity that outshines the competition and many higher priced speakers.


    This is a truly eye and ear-opening loudspeaker that will keep you enthralled listening to your favorite tracks for many years to come.
