Music Video: The Original Version of California Dreamin’

Barry McGuire

You are no doubt familiar with The Momas and The Popas version of California Dreamin’.  But it was actually the second version of the song to be recorded.  Originally, Barry McGuire recorded the song and brought the writer, John Phillips and his group, The Momas and The Popas to sing backup for him.  The Momas and The Popas version was this version without the McGuire vocals and with a flute replacing the harmonica solo on Barry’s version.
