 CANOE -- JAM! - Doherty as Dream weaver
This problematic but somehow moving story, told in fluid and informal style with the help of a backing band, is at once a long yarn about a famous pop group in a fabled time, and a 21/2-hour confession from a man coming to terms with his personal past.
Still, Doherty spares no one, not even himself, as he recounts various screwings-over and, mainly, the grim love triangle between he and bandmates Michelle and John Phillips.
Doherty is a born story-teller of the true, Celtic Maritime variety, and has a nice way with puns and cute, down-home imagery (throughout, he compares his good fortune to leaping from "flat rock to flat rock" across a river, but is wary of the "slippery stones" of the music industry).

 Dream A Little Dream, a CurtainUp review
Papa Denny has now returned from the cold of his native Canada to the same Bleecker Street from which he and his band mates arose, having survived it all (the adverb "remarkably" being pretty much obligatory).
Doherty could be forgiven if his recollection is a bit hazy (we are reminded of Grace Slick's quip, "If you remember the Sixties, you weren't there"), but it doesn't show.

 Theater News - Reviews: Dream a Little Dream -
According to Doherty, he and his golden throated colleagues gave a name to the sound synergistically acquired when their voices blended; they called it Harvey, "an overtone, a fifth voice that was created when the four of us sang together." The glad tidings of Dream a Little Dream are that Harvey is constantly present.
With Doherty fronting a quartet that includes Richard Burke (in the John Phillips slot), Angela Gaylor (a dead ringer for Michelle Phillips), and Doris Mason (weighing in as Mama Cass), The Mamas and the Papas' first single, "California Dreamin'," is as rousing as it ever was.
Doherty interweaves his own beginnings as a Canadian folk singer with a group called The Colonials and then The Halifax Three with the broader political scene, making a few questionable observations en route.

 Denny Doherty : Watcha' Gonna Do? - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Denny Doherty, the voice of numerous Mamas & Papas hits such as "California Dreamin,'" and "Monday, Monday," has been one of the greatest and most underrated lead vocalists of the rock era.
While he had not completely explored the area of songwriting during his fame with the Mamas & Papas, he was the one member of the group who was truly at loose ends by the groups' demise in the late 1960s.
Tracks such as "Gathering of the Words" and "Don't You Be Fooled" are quite remarkable, and show Doherty to be a sensitive artist in the singer-songwriter vein.

Doherty is joined onstage by a tight five-piece band and talented backup singers who bear uncanny resemblances to fellow group members Michelle Phillips and the late Cass Elliott.

 Eye - Leap of faith - 07.26.01
At the time, Doherty's trademark baritone (which made hits of songs like "Monday, Monday" and "I Saw Her Again Last Night") was still pure, strong and effortless.
And while it's easy to see that Doherty would be fun to talk to one-on-one, his delivery (set against an ever-changing backdrop of cool, old photographs and cheesy graphics) falls short of the mark and the script leans heavily on clichés.
He initially states that Cass -- a woman who knocked the Twiggy model of glamour on its ass by adorning her 300-pound frame with Pucci prints and go-go boots -- had a crush on him, but he didn't know about it until years later.

Denny kept telling the couple they needed Cass but John was certain her appearance would hold the group back commercially.
Adler however decided to re-record the lead with Denny up front, and the group was renamed yet again before long; this time by manager Bobby Roberts, perhaps having Cass' days of being billed as the Big Mama in the back of his mind.
