Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Easy Come Easy Go” by Cass Elliot


Only in the 1960s could someone as robust as Cass Elliot become an equally big star. Sure, she had talent to burn and a set of unrivalled pipes, but in this day of the thinner than thin in showbiz, she just would not have stood a chance…and a shame it would have been indeed. The […]

Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Eli’s Comin’” by Maynard Ferguson
