Cass Elliot: Cleopatra in Palm Springs, by Henry Diltz. I found this at Henry’s Facebook page, where, of all the hundreds of iconic photos he’s famous for, and hundreds more you’ll fall in love with as you explore his work, THIS is his poster image.  

“Gary Burden and I took Cass out to the Palms Springs desert in a limo to take this picture for an album cover. It never got used for the cover, but it was a billboard on Sunset Strip. The oud in the picture was bought for me in Egypt by my father, however, it was a designer oud and couldn’t actually be tuned. Bummer for me, but good for the picture.”

(This is, oddly enough, the poster frame for a fan-made video of the title track of The Mamas and The Papas 1971 album, People Like Us, linked in the source.)
