Its a shame they're relatively unheard of today in England as they are still worthy of a listen to. If you like trawling through the bands of the 60s for forgotten gems then this is definatley worth consideration, especialy at this price.
The follow-up Rice is Nice was pretty useful too.
But they wanted to be known as a psychedelic band, and most of the later tracks here are from that phase of recording. They are not at all bad, and in some cases(Wine And Violet,Turn Around And Take A Look)excellent, others a bit too extended.
Both of their primary US "rivals", The Electric Prunes & The 13th Floor Elevators,were better at marrying psychedelic sounds to single-length tracks on a more consisent basis. And yet.............
Now we must consider the 3rd single-Jelly Jungle;it's a PERFECT marriage of bubblegum & psychedelia. If you believe, as I do, The Monkees I'm A Believer is perfection as a pure pop single product(which is why it shifted 7 million copies in 7 weeks!), Jelly Jungle is a truly wonderful contender for that award as well.
There's no need to consider buying this CD for just the one track,because there are lots of goodies memorable & fun alike on it. But, even if there wasn't Jelly Jungle is just too good to not be in your collection.
This CD illustrates either way great pop music can be achieved with the right chemistry of musicians.
I have had this CD for many years and have really loved it.
The Lemon Pipers saw themselves as more of a rock group but the record company needed them to produce commercial pop and rather than lose their contract they conformed and produced the brilliant track Green Tambourine.
This first track on this truly brilliant compilation was perhaps their most famous song and became an iconic song of 1968 and the psychedelic era. It is a terrific pop record.
The song was covered by many groups around that time including The Peppermint Rainbow.
The group became labelled as bubble gum pop by the media and press. However as this CD shows they did manage to produce their own version of pop music that cannot be truly called bubble gum pop.
The result is that during their short lived career The Lemon Pipers created some great music. The group only lasted between 1966-69
This CD is a good cross section of what they did.
Here there is melodic pop, acid rock and psychedelia mixed with zany lyrics, humour and blues.
Many of the songs were written by Paul Leka and Shelly Pinz at the insistence of the record company, (Green Tambourine etc) Other songs are by the group themselves but they are all good in their way.
I love every track on this CD and I think it is good that there is a good representation of what the group could achieve.
For a great fun psychedelic bubble gum trip you cannot go wrong with this compilation.

The unfortunate thing about this band is that they crossed marketing genres and so their record label, Buddah, was not sure how to promote them and to which audience. Read morePublished on 23 Jan. 2013 by Numinous Ugo
