Editorial Reviews

This LA band scored one of the Summer of Love-era hits with their #1 Incense and Peppermints , but one listen to this 1967 LP proves that there was a lot more to this group than that anthem. Gorgeous melodies mingle with trippy soundscapes, filthy guitar fuzz and dense harmonies as you also hear Lose to Live; Birds in My Tree; Unwind the Clock , and more. Limited edition, so snap to it, psych fans!

The reviews attached to this product are reviews for an inferior sac cd compilation released by MCA that was a best of album under the same name, Incense and Peppermints.
This is a NEW release by Sundazed.
This is the SAC's first album remastered from the original tapes.
This is the first U.S. release of this album in cd form.
All the reviews below don't apply.
This is a classic 60's album that can now be sonically enjoyed.

Update- Jan. 2011:

At long last Sundazed has released the original album in its original form. The review I wrote several years ago that appears below is NOT written about this release, but Amazon has repeatedly confused one release with the other. My previous review was written about a COMPILATION disc released by MCA, NOT the Sundazed original album issue. I haven't yet heard the Sundazed release, but if experience is any indication it should be well done, and the original album is a psycho-pop classic. DO buy this one, especially since it's a limited-time release. If you liked the title song, then you'll be pleasantly surprised by the rest of the album. It's very enjoyable, and probably better than anyone expected it to be even at the time. There was a lot of bubble-gum pop at the time geared towards cashing in on the psychedelic craze with pre-teen kids (such as 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Lemon Pipers, The Archies, and others) but this was not one of them, although it's sometimes been thought of in that way. In reality, it's pretty cool. Get it before it's gone! I'd now give it at least 4 stars without even having heard it yet and I'm going to change my rating on this review as such. I'm leaving the original revue because it's still valid in reference to the compilation disc. But come on, Amazon, get your act together on this listing. These are two completely different releases!!

Original review:

I picked up a copy of this CD several years ago in the cutout bins at Tower Records. Since I own an old LP of the original album, I knew in advance exactly what I was getting, but others might be easily mislead. This is NOT the original "Incense And Peppermints" album on CD, despite the identical title and cover art.

33 minutes of music approximately. The sound is very good-clean and with some of the warmth associated with the original vinyl pressing (which I still own). The disc is snapped inside a tri-fold cardboard holder, which contains a short but informative essay on the group and the album by Dominic Priore. The original b&w back cover is also here inside the tri-fold holder. This album is actually somewhere between 3-3 1/2 or 4 "stars", depending on your nostalgia level and how highly you rate the music.

Well, a small wrong has been finally righted. Instead of the previous releases which were a collection of tracks from various albums, we have the original album with all the tracks in straight order. Never a first run band, THE STRAWBERRY ALARM CLOCK were (and continue to be) known primarily for the one track (a number 1 hit in 1967) we all know-"Incense and Peppermints"-a song that comes to mind when you think of the late 60's and the "Summer of Love", Hippies, tie-dye shirts, love beads, and all the rest.

One look at the wonderfully evocative, period cover photo will tell you a lot about the music and the era. The music was a mix of fuzz-toned guitars, cheesy organ, vibraphone, flute, and some close harmony singing-all wrapped up in the pop/psychedelic sound of the era . That and the fact that their one hit record was sung by a non-band member (Chris Mumford from SHAPES OF SOUND), who was hanging around the studio that day. But all that adds up to some fun, cool music-even if it was a bit lightweight. But if you listen to "Unwind With The Clock", a jazzy instrumental/vocal (a track that is always left off compilations), or "The World's On Fire", you hear another side to this band-they had more chops than many thought.

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.
