Slight abridged for group jamming.
Released on their self-titled album Loggins and Messina, "Your Mama Don't Dance" reached #4 on the Billboard pop chart and #19 on the Billboard Easy Listening Chart as a single in early 1973. This song, whose refrain and first verse is done in a blues format, deals with the 1950s and 1960s lifestyle concerning the generation gap, where the parents oppose the Rock and Roll Revolution, of the younger generation. When released as a single, it was the duo's biggest hit as well as their only Gold single.
