· They may have made one of
the defining records of the psychedelic Summer of Love with the US
chart-topping 45 ‘Incense And Peppermints’, but The Strawberry Alarm Clock were
far more than one-hit wonders.
· This new Tune In release
couples their first two albums, the inevitably-titled debut set Incense And Peppermints and the
sophomore release Wake Up...It’s Tomorrow,
and adds a trio of bonus tracks culled from contemporaneous singles.
· The 16 page booklet
features a new essay on the band that, with the aid of fresh quotes from the
leading players, examines the SAC’s labyrinthine tale in assiduous detail,
including the full, controversial story behind that iconic single and details
of the band’s exploits on the road with the likes of the Beach Boys and Buffalo
· Coupled with mastertape
sound quality and some extremely rare photos, this is the definitive early
Strawberry Alarm Clock package. Turn on,
tune in, turn your eyes around...

The Cowsills are right up there with the Monkees as classiest of all the American teen groups, the Cowsills were an institution in the late sixties. This 23 track compilation comprises their significant hits,the best of their superb vocal psychedelia and the entire "11 x 11" acid concept album released digitally for the first time anywhere in the world.
Hailing from Rhode Island, The Cowsills were the original "Family of Pop" on whom the Partridge Family were based.
Their father William "Bud" Cowsill, began assembling the group at the height of Beatlemania. Eventually it comprised his sons Bill, Bob, Barry, John and Paul, seven-year-old daughter Susan and their mother Barbara. The Cowsills created highly polished vocal pop and In 1967, after some false starts, their breakthrough single, the very memorable "The Rain the Park & Other Things' reached number 1 on the American chart.
The Cowsills enjoyed two million selling number one hits (both included on this compilation) "The Rain The Park & Other Things" (sometimes known as "I Love The Flower Girl") and their cover of the theme song from the popular musical "Hair" which became a hippy anthem and was banned in Vietnam.
The band's other two immense USA top ten hits "We Can Fly" and "Indian Lake" are also both included on this compilation.
