5.0 out of 5 stars Peppermint Rainbow Update From Style Magazine's Sept.-Oct./2007, April 18, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Will You Be Staying After Sunday (Audio CD)
I'm a huge fan of this group, and they are one of the most alluring mysteries in Pop Music. I found this in Style Magazine and decided to repost for all fans: >PEPPERMINT RAINBOW
Carole King may have asked "Will you still love me tomorrow?" but Baltimore's Peppermint Rainbow was a bit more specific. The band's sunny pop single "Will You Be Staying After Sunday/ If We Can Make it to Monday" reached No. 32 on the Billboard charts in 1969 amidst the Beatles' "Get Back" and debut singles by the Chicago Transit Authority and Three Dog Night. The tune, written by Al Kasha and Paul Leka, who had just scored a No. 1 hit in writing "Green Tambourine" for the Lemon Pipers, featured the rich vocal harmonies of Bonnie Lamdin (who sounds like a dead ringer for Spanky McFarlane on this cut) and her sister, Pat, and the backing efforts of a trio of guys-- Tony Carey on drums, Doug Lewis on lead guitar and Skip Harris on bass.

Discovered by another Baltimorean-- Mama Cass Elliot-- in a Georgetown club, the group went from a low point of sharing one loaf of bread and a package of bologna five ways to brief fame touring the country with The 5th Dimension, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, Sly and the Family Stone, even the ukulele-playing Tiny Tim. Lead singer Bonnie Lamdin Phipps remembers Peppermint Rainbow's audition for the "Dinah Shore Show"-- in Dinah Shore's living room-- and how Shore's influence got the band invited to perform on the "Mike Douglas Show." ("I still have the tape," she says fondly.)

Peppermint Rainbow released only one album, "Will You Be Staying After Sunday," which just missed making Billboard's Top 100 albums chart in 1969. By 1970, Bonnie Lamdin had married and the band members, worn out from touring and feeling a little defeated by the album's failure to chart, went their separate ways.

Only one of the band members, Doug Lewis, still plays music regularly, handling a variety of instruments and vocals in the local band The New Monopoly. (In the '90s, he was part of the Delaware-based band the Hubcaps.) Tony Carey, who Lamdin Phipps describes as the band's "free spirit," lives in Alaska and paints houses for a living. Skip Harris is deceased. Pat (Lamdin) Brown works for the juvenile court system, and Lamdin Phipps returned to Baltimore from Atlanta last year to become president and CEO of St. Agnes Hospital, the culmination of a 30-year career in the health care industry. Lamdin Phipps is philosophical about her time as part of the Peppermint Rainbow. "Being in the band prepared me for making presentations," she says with a laugh, "So I don't get totally paralyzed when I have to do that." --M.Z.
****************************************************************************** Don't pass up this REV-OLA U.K. Record Label's 2008 Remastered Reissue of PEPPERMINT RAINBOW's Classic "WILL YOU BE STAYING AFTER SUNDAY" album, which does feature the original 11 album tracks PLUS 10 Bonus Single Mixes for a total of 21 tracks - inluding the coveted "Single Mix"/45 Version of the hit title track! I can verify that because I have my copy. The sound on this edition is superior to the 2005 Collector's Choice label, of which I also own a copy.

and where do you get this 21 track 2008 remastered Rev-Ola disc?

I went to and found a 14 track version of "WILL YOU BE STAYING AFTER SUNDAY" album but not the 11 album tracks plus the 10 bonus single mixes release.

Where can I get this version you speak of?
