Editorial Reviews

Two CD set compiling the classic 1966-67 recordings for Reprise Records by this Psychedelic Garage Rock band, best known for their hit 'I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night' (included here). Like many other 'influential' bands, they were virtually ignored during the time they existed (apart from their hits 'I Had Too Much To Dream...' and 'Get Me To The World On Time') but are now considered to be one of the most important bands to emerge from the Psychedelic and Garage Rock scenes of the mid-to-late '60s. This stunning two CD set features a whopping 40 cuts including hits and album tracks plus previously unreleased outtakes, mono mixes, radio spots. alternate versions and so much more. Rhino UK. 2007.

This UK import 2 CD set released on Rhino/Reprise is long overdue and my prunes have shriveled up waiting for years for the first 2 Electric Prunes albums as well as the 45rpm singles to be reissued on CD on Reprise (not the Collectors' Choice reissues). I must say the packaging/layout is nice, although I would have favored this edition housed in a jewel case or with disc trays instead of CD pockets, but this is an insignificant complaint as there are other positive Prune points to ponder. First, I'm going to critique the sonic characteristics. This was transferred from the original master tapes o'course, being it's a Rhino release and the sound quality is just superb. Very clear, crisp and powerful sound like you've never heard and does the original warm analog recordings more than justice with all around dynamic remastered sound that makes the Prunes more of a pleasure to listen to now as I don't have to "drop the needle" on my near mint original copies. There have been a few Electric Prunes CD's released the past years, but in my opinion this is the one to have along with the Live In Stockholm 67' CD (one of the best live recordings of the late 60's & is a shame Reprise never issued it). Their magnum opus "Underground" is one of my top 20 psych albums of all time as this showed the potential the Prunes really possessed & if only the original lineup were able to stick around a bit longer for a third album to expand on. Sadly, Hassinger lost interest in them & Axelrod takes over completely of the Prunes' musical direction hence forward. The 68' Mass In F Minor LP although, still gets some plays out of me from time to time, truely unique album, but I missed Jimmy Lowe.Read more ›

Until now, if you wanted an overview of the Electric Prunes' output prior to Mass in F Minor, the obvious choice was the compilation Lost Dreams on the Birdman label. Largely drawn from their two magnificent albums from 1967, including their surrealistic American hit, I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night), it included later singles, rarities, unreleased items and extended versions of album tracks. Inevitably, certain favourite tracks from the albums were omitted, however.

This new anthology from Rhino has the luxury of being spread over two discs and therefore includes both stereo albums in full, namely I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night and Underground. Listeners can therefore hear from themselves why the band were so embarrassed at being made to record Al Jolson covers and vaudeville pastiches, whilst also enjoying omitted classics such as Bangles, Children Of Rain, Antique Doll and I, all in the high quality re-mastered sound that Lost Dreams introduced onto CD, this time by Dan Hersch.

The albums are both presented in their standard versions, so if you want to hear fuller versions of Hideaway, The Great Banana Hoax and Dr Do-Good you still need Lost Dreams, though the long stereo version of Long Day's Flight has been added (confusingly mislabeled as a mono single version).

Two CD, 41 track compilation. Looks like the Prune's first two CD's on an import reissue. Appears to be their first two lps, both put out in 1967, 'I Had Too Much To Dream' and 'Underground'. Yet, this is something you don't see everyday. First, you get every tune off 'I Had Too...' THEN plenty of out-take recordings and mono versions, then after that, WEA tagged on the entire 'Underground' album. Great late '60's all American garage rock / psychedelic. Plenty of 'deep album cuts' here that only true Electric Prunes fans (like myself) will likely remember, such as the tripping "Sold To The Highest Bidder", "About A Quarter To Nine", "Luvin'", "Wind-Up Toys" among others. Highly recommended

I bought the first album in '66, and I loved the singles. The album had a couple more decent songs (Bangles, Sold To The Highest Bidder, Lovin') but some really egregiously bad material, so I filed it, brought it out for the few good songs, and never bought anything else. I missed "Underground" completely, and then heard "Mass in F Minor" which I thought was interesting, but not anything I'd want to listen to again. I would occasionally see "Underground" in used racks but I skipped by it. Fast forward 40 years, and the Prunes are back together with a new album. This I gotta hear. It is fantastic, and leads me to purchase "Too Much to Dream" so I can reconsider it (my vinyl version got lost) and lo and behold...the first album is still pretty bad. No change there BUT, "Underground" is a great early psych album that I completely missed. There may not be anything as instantly memorable as "Dream" or "World" but there sure isn't any "Turnerville Trolley" or "Onie" either. It sounds a little like the 1st Country Joe album (so did lots of Psych albums around that time) but if this is what the Prunes could have built on, their ignominious end was totally undeserved. If you were just ignorant (like I was) this will set you straight. Otherwise, Rhino has done its usual nice job of remastering (sorry, but the best mastering of all time won't save some of those tracks on the first album) and if you've got scratched up vinyl this will be a nice upgrade. It also sports a few unreleased tracks, some mono mixes and some alternate versions. This one was a truly pleasant surprise. I'd give "Underground" 5 stars on its own. Thanks to all of you who posted the reviews that made me curious, and especially thanks to the Prunes for getting back together, putting out a great album, and sparking my interest in this one.
