    This 18-track set leans heavily on her earliest solo material, when she was recording for Dunhill, although it does have a few songs taken from RCA recordings made just before her death. Away from the Mamas & the Papas, Elliot (initially billed as Mama Cass) went into more of an MOR direction, somewhere between the Mamas & the Papas and Vegas. Frankly, she could sound like a hip variation on Ethel Merman. Even the two Top 40 hits that Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil wrote for her in late 1969, "It's Getting Better" and "Make Your Own Kind of Music," are brassy belters with an almost desperate optimism. Those hits are included here, along with her 1968 Top 20 entry "Dream a Little Dream of Me" (which was actually a Mamas & the Papas track), another Mann-Weil-penned single ("New World Coming"), a cover of Bruce Johnston's "Disney Girls," and a pre-Mamas & the Papas cut that she sang as part of the Big Three. ~ Richie Unterberger
