The best of the late 60's

"This is a compilation, but the original Incense and Peppermints album was really revolutinary for the time. I will date myself now, but I remember hearing this song on the radio in our car and was mesmerized by it. It was the first Lp I had ever bought. I actually wore out the groves on the Lp and came across another a few years ago. To this day, almost 40 years after I first heard the Strawberry Alarm Clock, I still like Incense and Peppermints as well as their other songs. Their style ranges from acid rock to jazz. The musicians are all very talented and the band works as a team as opposed to many of the bands of the era. Their recordings are really high quality and certainly not over processed like a lot of today's music is. SAC was in an era where 60's music was in transition from the early Beatles and old time R&R sound to a more acid rock sound. Lyrics like 'tune in, turn on, turn your eyes around.. look at yourself' were typical of SAC's lyrical style as well as the thinking of the times. It was an odd time. On one side, we had Woodstock, mini-skirts, muscle cars and fun fun fun, But, on the dark side, there were civil rights problems and the Viet Nam war. This transitional period was a kind of awakening for the country and for music. Although not as popular as names like the Doors, Jefferson Airplane and Steppenwolf, the Strawberry Alarm Clock still had a huge following. My only regret is that I didn't get a chance to see them (or the Doors!) when they came to the city where I lived during the late 60's. This album is a nice compilation of SAC's hits. The songs are as fresh and original sounding as they were almost 40 years ago."
Forget what the other reviews say! This is a great CD!

"This CD really is great. It has classic music from the sixties. Strawberry Alarm Clock wasn't just a one-hit wonder band. Their music is groovy. In fact, I find it very entertaining and clever. Here's why: though they were a band from the sixties, Strawberry Alarm Clock's music sounded like a parody or stereotypical retrospective of the sixties. This didn't make my experience worse, but better. Contains a few underpraised gems. Listen with an open mind and enjoy an excellent compilation of the Strawberry Alarm Clock's music."
Groovy baby!!!!!

"I first discovered this group in 1991, during my junior year in high school. After lending my only copy out, I was so happy I could get another @!!!!! They were legends in their own right.....a total experience by themselves!!!! With the renewed interest in 60's music (thanks Austin Powers) I fully expect them to get the recognition they deserve."
