The Mamas and Papas sign a document requesting that the royalties from Dunhill Records, Inc. be paid.
Rare Typed Document Signed: "John Phillips", "Michelle Phillips", "Cass Elliot" and "Dennis Doherty", 1p, 8½x11. No place, 1967 September 26. To Dunhill Records, Beverly Hills. In full: "The undersigned hereby irrevocably instruct and direct you to pay a sum equal to twenty (20%) per cent of any and all royalties payable to us from Dunhill Records, Inc., attributable to the sale of records embodying our performances on master recordings produced by Lou Adler, to Mr. Lou Adler at 800 Stone Canyon Road, Los Angeles, California 90024. All recording costs are to be borne solely by us." Adler's name and address are crossed out in black pen, most probably before this document was sold to a collector/dealer. The day after this contract, Adler resigned from Dunhill Records and was hired by The Mamas and the Papas to be their producer and as an independent contractor to supervise, direct and produce their recording sessions. Adler also managed Jan & Dean and Carole King. The Mamas and the Papas were formed in New York in 1964 and disbanded in 1972. Their hits include "California Dreamin'", "Monday, Monday" (1966 Grammy) and "Dedicated to the One I Love". Cass Elliot was only 30 when she died of a heart attack in London in 1974. John Phillips was 65 when he died in 2001 of heart failure. DENNIS "DENNY" DOHERTY died in 2007 at age 66. Anything signed by all four members is highly desirable. Lightly creased. 2 file holes at upper margin. Stray ink marks in blank area below Doherty's signature. Staple holes at upper left.
