John Phillips - Mississippi

John Phillips, founder of The Mamas And The Papas, would have been 77 years old today if he were still with us. At least his music is out there, good as ever, and "Mississippi" from his 1970 solo album John, The Wolf King Of L.A., is my favourite Phillips song, surpassing everything he wrote for The Mamas And The Papas and Scott McKenzie. It also includes the shortest drum solo in history, courtesy of Hal Blaine, at about 3:17 into the clip below.
