Mamas and Papas and the Toilet Seat – “Go Where You Wanna Go!”
This LP made it’s way into the top albums of all time list but not before the “controversial” toilet seat cover was pulled from distribution. The group was off to a controversial start. This – their first LP made it all the way to number 1 for one week on Billboard’s charts and remained on the charts for 106 weeks. The seat was first just blacked out – then covered later with a scroll – A couple versions of this exist.
The toilet seat cover is rather difficult to locate. Current price guides place it’s mint value at $80 – while covered copies can be had for just a few dollars. In 2011 a nice copy of the toilet seat version went for $200 – Prices have come down – now somewhere just below the $80 figure.
Toilet seats censored? We’ve come a long way. Or have we?
