The Electric Prunes Rediscovered - Again.

Way back in the ye olde 2000s the Birdman label reissued/released a couple killer CDs from the1960s psychedelic garage band the Electric Prunes. Released in 2001 Lost Dreams is a 23 track collection of the band's best songs from their first two Reprise albums, ultra-rare singles sides, demos and a radio spot for Vox wah-wah pedals. Then a year later in 2002 came the amped-up-fuzzed-out live album Stockholm '67. Both releases should be considered essential for fans of the band or the genre.

1. Shadows
2. Ain't It Hard
3. Little Olive
4. I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)
5. I've Got A Way Of My Own
6. Luvin'
7. I Happen To Love You
8. Are You Lovin' Me More (But Enjoying It Less)
9. Hideaway
10. Try Me On For Size
11. The Great Banana Hoax
12. You Never Had It Better
13. Dr. Do-Good
14. Get Me To The World On Time
15. Captain Glory
16. World Of Darkness
17. Train For Tomorrow
18. Big City
19. Wind-Up Toys
20. It's Not Fair
