The Electric Prunes

Though they got considerable input from talented L.A. songwriters and producers, with their two big hits penned by outside sources, the Electric Prunes did by and large play the music on their records, their first lineup writing some respectable material of their own. On their initial group of recordings, they produced a few great psychedelic garage songs, especially the scintillating "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night," which mixed distorted guitars and pop hooks with inventive, oscillating reverb. Songwriters Annette Tucker and Nancie Mantz wrote most of the Prunes' material, much of which in turn was crafted in the studio by Dave Hassinger, who had engineered some classic Rolling Stones sessions in the mid-'60s. "Too Much to Dream" was a big hit in 1967, and the psychedelized Bo Diddley follow-up, "Get Me to the World on Time," was just as good, and also a hit. Nothing else by the group made it big, and their initial pair of albums was quite erratic, although a few scattered tracks were nearly as good as those singles. Although they began to write more of their own material on their second album, their subsequent releases were apparently the products of personnel who had little to do with the original lineup. Their third LP, Mass in F Minor, was a quasi-religious concept album of psychedelic versions of prayers; a definitively excessive period piece, its best song ("Kyrie Eleison") was lifted for the Easy Rider soundtrack. None of the original Prunes were still in the lineup when the band dissolved, unnoticed, at the end of the '60s. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night is one of the best psychedelic rock songs ever released. I still crank the volume up to about 22 when it comes on in my CD changer. And the memories of a few golden haired beauties who were part of my life come flooding back too.

Their 1st album is considered an
underground classic, but their next
album, ironically called Underground,
was even better! Among the great songs included " A Long Days Flight,"
The Great Banana Hoax, Hide Away,
Dr. Do Good, Antique Doll, etc., etc.

Every song they do sounds like Gold to me.

When I was a kid growing up in the 70's, I had no idea who this band was but I used to tell everyone they were my favorite band b/c their name used to crack me & everyone else up!! I've never heard one song by them until today - right on, Pandora!

Mass In F Minor is amazing. This band is amazing. There will never be another band that sounds like The Electric Prunes ever again. Their music is timeless.

They got heavy airplay in Seattle and were rumored to be from there which was not true. Then abruptly, KJR quit playing Too Much To Dream because to them it sounded like they were singing "Too Much To Drink"!

this bio needs to be updated. the prunes reformed in the early 2000's and have since released three (great) albums of new material: artifact (2002), california (2004), feedback (2006).

"Mass in F Minor" was notable not so much for its quality as for being one of the first efforts to take rock in a more serious direction. (OK not all the concept albums that followed were worth a damn, but some of them were!) Dick Summer gave the Mass a play on his WBZ show with full reverential treatment.
