Editorial Reviews

Between 1965 and 1969 Los Angeles' Electric Prunes recorded some of the best psychedelic/experimental/garage/punk of the era. The band is probably best remembered for their US hit "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night," though they generated a staggering amount of stellar material for a band that existed for such a short period of time. This twenty-three-track CD is the definitive collection by these '60s psychedelic legends. Only recently have their first two classic LPs been finally made available on CD by the Collectables label (taken from nth-generation tapes and mastered atrociously, unfortunately). Now, for the first time, the 'Prunes' finest moments have been captured on the digital format in pristine sound. Taken from original master tapes and painstakingly restored and mastered under the guidance of 'Prunes leader JAMES LOWE, these recordings have never sounded better. Collecting the best tracks from the band's first two albums, ultra-rare singles sides, demos and a hilarious radio spot for Vox wah-wah pedals, this is the only release anyone will ever need by the Electric Prunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kings of Psychedelic Tunesmithery February 22, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Lost Dreams album gathers together all the evidence that the Electric Prunes were well and truly ahead of the pack when it came down to having a good song and some original ideas about how to arrange it and record it.There are the two main hits here " I had Too Much To Dream Last Night" and "Get Me To The World On Time", along with some blistering album cuts like "Great Banana Hoax" and "You Never Had It Better". Also included is one of the best B-sides ever released, the flip to "Get Me To The World On Time" entitled "Are You Loving Me More (But Enjoying It Less)" which is a killer example of what the Prunes sound was all about, it pulsates and throbs right outta the speakers of your stereo.
The problem with a lot of stuff from the psychedelic era is that it was music made by people who were trying to turn their brains to mush with drugs. Not so here, the songs are sharply executed and stand up even in this day and age. The biggest shame is that there is too little of their music around as their career was wrecked by a short sighted record company, although it's great to see that the band are back together and making great new music in the 21st Century with a new album "Artifact".
So, all in all "Lost Dreams" is an essential purchase for followers of sixties psychedelia and for anyone who likes just great music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Electric Prunes - 'Lost Dreams' (Birdman) May 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Beside the hard-to-find UK import 'Long Day's Flight', this collection of 23 songs on 'Lost Dreams' is the only legit Prunes compilation release. Includes mostly cuts from their first two albums 'I Had Too Much To Dream' and 'Underground' plus some super-rare singles and previously unreleased demos (those are always good to hear). Since I've always dug these guys, it's tough for me not to fully appreciate tracks like their lesser known tunes such as "Luvin'", "Try Me On For Size", "Wind-Up Toys" and "Ain't It Fun". Strictly for the Electric Prunes completists OR a new fan that just prefers to get just one of their CD's. A (definite) should-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing (and Wonderful) Surprise! June 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What a treat and wonderful compilation! The biggest thrill for me was "Shadows", previously unavailable on any recording until this time. It was featured in a dandy little 1968 film, The Name of the Game Is Kill, and I loved it when I saw the film on it's original release, and have been searching for it for years. But all the other tracks are excellent as well, with first-rate sound quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost definitive June 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This compilation renders all other Electric Prunes releases obsolete. James Lowe, lead singer, intended this. Unhappy with all the other Prunes releases, Lowe and bassist Mark Tulin selected tracks they deemed worthy of the Prunes legacy and remastered them specifically for this release. Consequently, this is the best Punes album you'll be able to get your hands on. One minor quibble: where is "Children Of Rain" and "Antique Doll"? However, the remastering makes up for this minor omission. The sound is simply amazing. You can put away the first two albums for good now.
