Synopsis

Album Description
The Strawberry Alarm Clock made musical history with its first single, the infectious, psychedelic "Incense and Peppermints," which topped the national singles charts in December 1967 and remains one of the Aquarian Age's most enduring anthems. But, as the California combo's debut LP demonstrates, there was a lot more to the Strawberry Alarm Clock than their iconic trademark hit. Like its namesake hit, Incense and Peppermints combines catchy melodic flights with an edgy progressive sensibility that manifests itself in the trippy soundscapes, sophisticated harmonies and evocative lyrics of such memorable tracks as "The World's on Fire," "Birds in My Tree," "Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow" and "Paxton's Back Street Carnival." The result is a surprise-filled collection that All Music Guide called "one of the more delightful artifacts of the psychedelic era, a strangely compelling mix of psychedelia, sunshine pop, garage rock, and California harmony." Unavailable in its original LP format for decades, Incense and Peppermints has been meticulously restored to its original glory for this LP reissue, using Sundazed's exacting technical and aesthetic standards. The album is pressed on high-quality, high-definition vinyl, and features a complete reproduction of the album's unique original cover art.

"bring me back to the 60's -70's" J | LONG ISLAND NY | 01/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It sounds great and the days of my past came back to me. I remembered sitting in a cloud of smoke listening with friends. We heeded every word. I believe everyone from the 60's should buy this. Relive your past unless it really stunk."
