Format:Audio CD
First introduced to SAC by my brother who is trapped in a music world between the years of 1964 and 1968. If he'd been born in 1948 he would have been in his element. This album reflects the ultimate psychedelic sound. Starting with the fantastic 'Incense & Peppermints', with its distinctive hypnotic melody line, pure 60's instrument sounds, clever lyrics, it sends you into a trance, in fact the whole album is full of songs and music that has a dream-like quality not quite of this earth. But even those not committed to Psychedelic, would enjoy this album as the songs do not stray too far off the beaten track, and some of them are great pop songs! Also I find it hard to resist dancing, when listening to most songs on this album, songs such as 'Sit With The Guru', 'Tomorrow', 'Love Me Again'. 'Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow', is just beautiful, with its haunting, hypnotic organ sounds and guitar effects, again create a dream-like state of mind. To sum it up it's an exciting album that you will never tire of. Even Madonna quoted 'Incense & Peppermints' as one of her favourite songs, it got number 1 in America in 1967. If you are 60's pop fan, or even if you are open-minded in your musical tastes, you will not be disappointed with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fruity 60s Music 15 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For 40 years I had forgotten this band existed before stumbling across them again & sent away for this cd as a 'best of'. It did not disappoint. There are, maybe, 3 tracks I would delete from my MP3 player but the rest is good to great, my favourites being 'Love Me again', 'The World's on Fire' & 'Small Package'. This band straddled the ground between bubblegum pop & mild psychadelia, a nice place to be, and is the sixties in one small fruity package. Buyers please note, there is a short version of this album - pay the extra and get the full package.

Lovely floaty, dreamy psychedelic flower-power pop; it's all here; hippie lyrics, vocal harmonies, fluid guitar, Farfisa organ, harpsichord, flute and talking drums; so light a joss stick, put on this cd and drift away to a happier and more gentle time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The color of time 16 July 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
The last great shout of the first Psychedelic era was this chart topping band once worth only Sixpence.Heavily Beatles influenced Incense & Peppermints is the greatest song George Harrison never wrote.
You hear the Beach Boys in there and Small Package fades out with a quote from California Girls.
In the U K the Clock meant nothing and the LP which followed the single had no info.Today you get a 6 page booklet and many extra tracks taken from the subsequent singles and tracks from the other 3 albums all of which came up to 1970 (technically the final year of the 60s)
The Clock may be thought of as One Hit Wonders but they charted with 3 other songs with Tomorrow making the Top 30.
With a lineup which seemed to change monthly member Ed King joined Lynyrd Skynyrd later.
Handling production was Frank Slay of the Slay-Crewe team of writers who had begun in the 50s with Freddy Cannon,the Rays,Billie & Lillie.He'd made a basic track of an instrumentals which he asked a couple of members of the yet to be founded Strawberry Alarm Clock to write some lyrics for what became Incense & Peppermints.Listen to this record and you hear the Beatles especially You Can't Do That.Its the sound of the Association meeting the Beatles
UNI/MCA picked up the single from the All American label the same one which the Sixpence had recorded for
The final single Desiree has no writer credits on this Cherry Red/Big Beat CD but it doesn't say anywhere its a cover of the Left Banke song and although its mentioned their cover of Good Morning Starshine is missing

5.0 out of 5 stars Strawberries Are Good 9 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Having purchased this for that quirky hit "Incense and Peppermints", imagine my surprise at the quality of their other work. How could "Sit With The Guru" not have been as big as Incense?. There are other great tracks on this, most of their singles are very listenable, with very few duds. The booklet is fine, but could have more specific chart details. This is probably the best Strawberry Alarm Clock CD available and should be a must have for anyone remotely interested in the band.
