The Mama & The Papas :: Snowqueen Of Texas

Dig into this honey-coated gem from The Mama & The Papas.

From their 1971 album People Like Us, “Snowqueen of Texas” is a rich slice of mellow, golden folk pop. With soulful rhythm and warm, understated production, it's a casual dance between grooving bass and drums, wavy guitar, twinkling keys, and toasty autumnal harmonies. It also contains some of John Phillips’ most interesting songwriting and clever ear for melody. The song paints a scene both vivid and vaguely warm, with phrases . . .
