DVD Issue Notes:

This is the definitive biography of one of the '60s most influential groups, The Mamas and The Papas, and its founder, John Phillips. Straight Shooter documents the group's beginning in the Greenwich Village folk scene through their inception in the Virgin Islands and travels to California, the inspiration for one of their biggest hits.

In exclusive interviews, founding members John Phillips, Michelle Phillips and Denny Doherty tell the story of The Mamas and The Papas, supplemented by home movies, personal photographs and interviews.

Features performance footage of their greatest hits including: California Dreamin', Monday, Monday, Dedicated to the One I Love and Twelve Thirty (Young Girls are Coming to the Canyon).

This is an in-depth look at the legendary group's incredible story, and is a necessary addition to all sixties DVD collections.
