An early folk-rock group of sorts, the Mugwumps made some recordings in the mid-'60s, but the short-lived New York outfit are principally remembered for what their members did after they split up. Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty would become one-half of the Mamas and the Papas; Zal Yanovsky would join the Lovin' Spoonful; and Jim Hendricks was the odd man out, not achieving any notable subsequent fame. Their sessions — released on obscure posthumous albums that were issued to capitalize on the musicians' subsequent notoriety — show a tentative act with branches in both folk and straight pop. Seeds of their future folk-rock activities can be heard in the male-female harmonic blends especially, though the material is largely unimpressive, and the arrangements too pop-based to bear much similarity to either the Mamas & the Papas or the Lovin' Spoonful.
