Incense And Peppermints/Wake Up… It’s Tomorrow - Strawberry Alarm Clock

Incense And Peppermints/Wake Up… It’s Tomorrow
·       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 Springfield.   
·       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...

Restless Night : The Complete Pop-Psych Sessions 1967-71
Released on 06/09/2010. Octopus's sole 1969 long-player Restless Night is something of a treasure among '60s Brit-psych fans due to its mixture of proto-progressive riffs, accomplished pop tunes and sparkling Beatlesque flourishes. The band evolved out of the thriving Hertfordshire beat scene that also gave us The Zombies, The Gods and those other cult pop-psych heroes Forever Amber. Octopus' music was coloured by the use of keyboards and layered vocal harmonies in much the same way. As The Cortinas they enjoyed several years of local success which culminated in the 1968 CBS  single Phoebe's Flower Shop . The single was pure pop confectionery and betrayed little of the band's tight, melodic brand of rock. By the time they'd been signed to Larry Page's Penny Farthing label in 1969, their sound had expanded to encompass the burgenoning progressive scene, the dawn of the solo troubadour and the omnipresent influence of The Beatles, illustrated perfectly by their live sets of the period which included songs by Yes, Neil Young, Cat Stevens and even note-for-note renditions of "I Am The Walrus" and "Baby, You're A Rich Man"!

The first single and album opener The River is a tough dancefloor groover complete with lysergic fuzz guitar and has appeared on several compilations while the album cover art is an eye-opening classic of the "so bad it's good" school. Much to the band's horror, they discovered that Page had released a bastardised version of the album which omitted two of the original tracks and added the b-side of the single. Previous re-issues of the album have, not surprisingly, stuck to the erroneous tracklist but here at Rev-Ola we always strive to give you more. And you love it don't you, you little beauties?
