*From Creeque Alley: The History of the Mamas and the Papas:
—“Go Where You Wanna Go…Some discographies list this as Dunhill single 4018, which would have made it the first by the group. ABC-Dunhill files indicate that Dunhill 4018 was not released.”

**This single was actually released under the name “Mama Cass with The Mamas and the Papas”
