The Mugwumps were a short-lived New York rock group active in the mid-60s. Formed in 1964, they are principally remembered for what its members did after they split up.
Members Mama Cass Elliot and Denny Doherty would become one-half of the Mamas and the Papas. Zal Yanovsky would join the Lovin' Spoonful. Jim Hendricks (not to be confused with rock guitarist legend, Jimi Hendrix) was the odd man out, not achieving any notable subsequent fame, but considerable success as a performer and song writer. He wrote the number one hit "Summer Rain" for Johnny Rivers and the theme song "Long Lonesome Highway" for the TV show "Then Came Bronson". His 1989 album Running in the Light is considered a classic of Christian music. Now living in Nashville, Tennessee, Jim has recorded over 50 albums of traditional American folk, mountain, gospel, and western music.
