Customer Review

on 10 April 2011
The Pipers were mainly remembered for 1968's big hit Green Tambourine;pure bubblegum-pop & very good.

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.
