One reviewer here says that apart from I Had Too Much to Dream... and Get Me to the World... the rest of the Electric Prunes output was "...weird stuff..." well that is just what the rest of us look for in a psychedelic band. Clearly the above mentioned tracks are stand out songs from this album but so are Bangles Try Me On For Size and Ain't It Hard.

I really hate this lazy attitude to music listening that just wants the highlights of everything. People keep telling me that it is great that you can download the "good" tracks from i-tunes or where ever rather than have to buy whole albums. This is just rubbish and leads to a rubbish music collection where we only have what we know we like already and is really limiting.

This is a great album of the period and stands repeated listening. Buy this and enjoy. You should also check out the Nuggets compilation album and hear some of the other bands of this era that are worth further exploration. The Seeds on CD are very worth getting as their six albums are available in pairs on three CDs (particularly the first two) and The Chocolate Watch Band compilation (Melts In Your Brain... Not On Your Wrist) is excellent stuff.

I have an old original vinyl copy on Reprise which is now unplayable (I 'inherited' it from my elder brother at an age when I thought groups played from within the record player itself...). Listening to the CD now I find most of the album as beguiling now as I did when I first heard it as a kid 30 years ago. Sure there is some filler, but name me any mid-to-late 60's LA band who was totally innocent of this (after all, singles at that time were still generally considered more important than albums). For a debut album it holds together well despite some middling material like 'Onie'(ballad) and 'The King Is In His Counting House' (cod-baroque tomfoolery). These are thankfully offset by the adrenaline-rush of the L.P.'s two mainspring tracks plus 'Try Me On For Size', 'Are You Lovin' Me More' and the Russian/Cossack-like 'Sold To the Highest Bidder'. Also, the slow-psych/jazz 'Train For Tomorrow' benefits from an echoey, atmospheric production (a la Doors debut) which results in cementing the album's reputation as a re-discovered garage/pysch/pop gem. Not as good as 'Underground', but good all the same.

The Electric Prunes were formed in Los Angeles in 1965, and released their debut in 1967 on the Reprise Record Label, the band in subsequent years would become mired in internal affairs and personnel changes but here they have certainly left an important album. The record they released fully displays the qualities which are the essence of the original line-up of The Electric Prunes, "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)" as a song and an album oozes Garage, Psychedelia and Punk, which lets be honest are all you can ask for.

Although this album is famed for its key contributions from song writing legends of the alternative scene; Tucker and Mantz, The Electric Prunes have unmistakably stamped their mark on this record, heavily influencing the sound and feel of the album, the success of which can be heard throughout. Obviously the "strong" singles which reached the mainstream from this album; "Get Me To The World on Time" and the title track "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)", are the stand out tracks on the record, but if you delve deeper there are some brilliant numbers which move the Prunes from being your typical Garage band to one of the key players in the genre, with a sound distinctly theirs.

Always trying to find ways to be different, my favourite song off this album is not what many observers would believe to be their strongest, sure "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)" is a glorious song with its ear shifting start and eerie content, and "Get Me to The World On Time" is what an on form Rolling Stones would have sounded like if they were raised in the California sun, but for me "Sold to The Highest Bidder" is a marvellous effort which I have to listen to at least once a day, with its Greek sounding guitar and lyrics about greed, I really cannot get enough of it.

This is the 'Prunes first album. The only tracks mentioned on the sleeve of the vinyl original are 'I had Too Much To Dream Last Night' and 'Get Me To the World On Time.' These two are garage/psych classics and will ensure the bands place in many peoples hearts. The fact they are the only tracks listed should serve as a warning. Most of the other tracks, sadly, are dire. A few songs such as 'Bangles' or 'Are You loving Me (But Enjoying It Less)' deserve to be along side those two songs. However it is difficult to belive the same writting team that gave us 'I Had Too Much To Dream' also wrote 'Onie'or 'The Toonervile Trolley.' The band themselves were unhappy with a lot of the material (it seems they were pushed into recording songs by outside writers). Other albums famously didn't include any of the band. In 2001 the original members reformed and released 'Artifact' pointedly refering to it as their 3rd album, despite the amount of releases put out under the 'Electric Prunes' moniker. 'Artifact' is superb. Unless your a 'must have every note ever released' type invest in that CD and a compilation. (some of the most recent ones are aproved by the band and feature tracks they feel reprent them best).
