 And today's only-a-day-late musical birthday is that of Michelle Phillips, late of the Mammas and the Pappas, who was 78 yesterday. As well as her contributions to the music of that extraordinarily talented vocal combo (and to the emotional sturm und drang that eventually broke it up), the dangerously beautiful Michelle had a brief solo career. Her one album, Victim of Romance, nicely produced by Jack Nitzsche, made no commercial impact (just like her husband John's extraordinary Wolfking of LA), but is still valued by a few connoisseurs. Here is a rather lovely track, There She Goes, written by John. Is that a fresh gardenia in Michelle's hair?
