I respect these guys because they were very original and all their tracks were different in some sort of way. Don't believe all that crap about them being pure bubblegum... no, that was a false title; they were more psychadelic than anything. They were just given such a title due to a couple of their hits which happened to be bubblegum.
Sure there was "Green Tambourine" and "Jelly Jungle," but that doesn't mean they were all that was worth listening to of this band of oddities. Real spotlights of this album consist of "Blueberry Blue," "Ask Me If I Care," "Catch Me Falling," and my all-time favorite "Everything Is You." All very unique in their own way, and, in my opinion, they exceed "Green Tambourine" in every way. This album only has a few tracks that aren't too great (two or three) but really, the majority is well worth the money. If you want to hear something new, try this one out. Just don't expect to find anybody in this lifetime that shares such an interest, unless you force somebody to hear them. Unfortunately, nobody is interested in trying out unusual/dated music nowadays....
My only complaint is the lack of the remaining four Lemon Piper recordings "Quiet Please," "Danger," "Hard Core," and "I Need Someone (The Painter)." The only way you can hear these is by purchasing other Lemon Piper Greatest Hits compilations, meaning you'll pretty much have three copies of this one, with the exception of an extra track or two. Pft! Its a scheme I tell you....

Good collection from this one hit wonder group,features their smash song green tambourine.Also features their other singles they released plus b sides and a few album tracks and a couple of psychedelic tracks they wrote themselves.Remastered well with colorful packaging short bio on the group, but sadly no pictures in inlay.A part from this just another one of their compilations with not much more variation on the songs compiled.

The Buddah stable of artists was easily the most successful purveyor of the 1960's phenomenon known as "bubblegum" - that heavy, repetitive bass beat combined with simplistic - and, yes, at times moronic - lyrics. This was in 1968/69, and by this time the industry had started to breed the "progressive" faction of artists and critics, and it wasn't long before they took dead aim at anything and everything enjoying huge commercial success. And make no mistake, groups like The Ohio Express, 1910 Fruitgum Co., The Archies, The Monkees and, to a lesser degree, The Lemon Pipers (vocalist/guitarist Ivan Browne, guitarist Bill Bartlett, organist R.G. Nave, bassist Steve Walmsley and drummer Bill Albaugh), were enjoying huge success. Wallowing in self-righteous indignation, the "progressive" set lashed out blindly at such groups, all the time failing to heed some sage advice on the ills of jealousy and envy. Such as that of Henry Fielding who wrote, way back in 1742, "Some folks rail against other folks, because other folks have what some folks would be glad of." And let's admit it, today you'll find a lot more 60+ people walking around recognizing and whistling or humming along to Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, Simon Says, or Green Tambourine than anything ever done by The Velvet Underground or Psychedelic Furs!

In terms of commercially-successful singles, The Lemon Pipers, whose music could best be described as "psychedelic bubblegum" compared to the others, pulled up the rear at Buddah with just three Billboard Pop Hot 100 charters, compared to seven each for The 1910 Fruitgum Co. and Ohio Express (not counting their two Cameo hits). On the other hand, they were also the only ones with a # 1 to their credit, as Green Tambourine reached that pinnacle early in 1968 b/w No Help From Me on Buddah 23.

Many Casual Music Fans of Oxford, Ohio's Lemon Pipers will only remember one of this Band's Songs and that would be "Green Tamborine" but in those days I was more than just a Casual Lemon Pipers Fan. Yes "Green Tamborine" was this Band's Most Famous Song and it was/is A 60's Classic & in December 1967 it was also The Buddah Label's First US #1 Hit Song (it was also a #7 UK Hit Song) but The Band actually had at least Three other Songs that saw a considerable amount of Radio Airplay and they were "Turn Around And Take A Look" which made it to #132 on The US Charts in October 1967, "Rice Is Nice" which made it to #46 on The US Charts in March 1968 (and it also reached as high as #41 in The UK) and "Jelly Jungle (Of Orange Marmalade)" which made it to #51 on The US Charts in May 1968 & All Four are on This Disc. I'm Sure I have also heard "Blueberry Blue" on The Radio Airwaves too because it sounded Very familiar when I first heard it on This Disc. Some of these other Tunes have grown on me too. "Everything Is You" is a Very Good Song.

Some Modern Day Music Fans would call The Lemon Pipers Music Weird & Strange but I called The Lemon Pipers Music Unique & Different & alot of today's Music Weird & Strange!.....Is this Music Bubblegum Music?.....Sorta: but The Pipers Music also had a slight touch of Pop, Psychedelia & even Acid-Rock in it. Hey!.....It was The Swinging 60's & The Beatles were still together & "Hey Jude" Plus Magical Mystery Tour's "All You Need Is Love" & Hello Goodbye" were also Riding High on The Charts then Plus The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Etc Etc Etc were also getting in on The Flower Power Scene!.....The Lemon Pipers Fit Right In during That Era and it was Great!!
