More than most '60s garage hopefuls, the Electric Prunes found themselves falling prey to the machinations of the music industry, failing to read the small print when they made the ill-advised decision to sell the rights to their name, resulting in the band being usurped by session musicians after a promising start to their career.
This great value box set tells you all you need to know, although completists will point out that this release contains no additional material, resulting in a handful of non-album singles being left off, although they are easily available elsewhere (check out the excellent "The Complete Reprise Singles" which will fill in the gaps).

Here's an album-by-album rundown of what you get for your money:

Disc 1: "The Electric Prunes" (1967)
Featuring their two classic US/UK hits ("I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" & "Get Me To The World On Time"), their debut LP was close to being a garage/psych classic, although they found themselves under pressure to record several tracks from outside songwriters resulting in a handful of bubblegum/novelty-style tracks which slightly diluted the band's impact, nevertheless, an enjoyable period piece. 7/10

Disc 2: "Underground" (1967)
This time around, the band wrote most of the material, the result being a more consistent set. The Electric Prunes' fusion of minimal garage-punk and psychedelia coming good on what was the original line-up's finest hour. 8/10

Disc 3: "Mass In F Minor" (1968)
Here's where the going gets weird: At the behest of their manager, composer David Axelrod was bought in with a brief to create a psychedelic version of the Christian mass - sung entirely in Latin!

This is great value for those on a budget who want a comprehensive low cost way to acquire or reacquire this fantastic (literally) late 60s psychedelic US rock. Musically it is wonderful stuff all. Some of the albums are pure "band", and some are led by David Axelrod, with whom the band did not entirely agree artistically, but who was great too. It was actually an Axelrod-led track that got onto the Easy Rider soundtrack - my intro to the Electric Prunes back in the day. Axelrod liked turning religious music into psychedelia. And it worked!

The first 4 albums are great. Apart from the contentious way the original band were tricked out of their name during he third album, it is hard to believe the fifth album was recorded by the band that delivered Release of an Oath. Add to that the description "THE NEW IMPROVED ELECTRIC PRUNES" well, they could only get away with that because their was no trade descriptions act back then.They sound like a demented English Blues Band strangling cats, bound together by a barely capable organist. Thank goodness for Artifact, California and Feedback.
