The Electric Prunes Stockholm 67 on 180g LP
In the winter of 1967, a psychedelic-garage-punk band from Woodland Hills, CA arrived in Europe for what would be their first and last tour of the continent. On the strength of their hit single "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night," the band was welcomed with open arms by European rock fans as well as British rock royaltly like Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Keith Moon, and The Beatles.
On the last stop of the tour someone pushed the record button and this artifact is the result. Stockholm '67 finds the Electric Prunes at the height of their powers. Over-amplified and fuzzed to the max, the band is explosive, noisy and wild here, and this recording is evidence in itself that the Electric Prunes deserve to be ranked alongside the very best bands of their era.
The 8-song set is highlighted by definitive live takes of the band's breakout single "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" and its equally as impressive follow-up "Get Me To The World On Time." 180g vinyl reissue from Sutro Park Records.
