Electric Prunes

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Electric Prunes - Release Of An Oath Release Of An Oath
Pop New - LP RS 6316 Warner
Sealed 1968 Stereo Original. Small Brass Punch Hole Rivet. “The Second Album On Which Composer David Axelrod And Producer Dave Hassinger Usurped The Name Of The Electric Prunes (The Band Which Recorded "I Had Too Much Too Dream Last Night" Had Long Since Split — Their Names And Likenesses Are Nowhere To Be Found On This LP) Is Much Less Notorious Than Its Predecessor, Mass In F Minor. This Is A Shame, Because It's Actually The Better Album By Far. Mass In F Minor Is A Halting, Muddy Attempt At Combining Rock And Classical Instrumentation, An Idea That's Better Explored On Release Of An Oath (Which Is, According To The Liner Notes, Based On A Centuries-Old Prayer Called The Kol Nidre). Songs Like The Liturgical "Holy Are You" And The Mostly Instrumental "General Confessional" Combine Swirling String And Woodwind Parts With Heavy Guitar And Organ In A More Organic And Cohesive Fashion Than Before. Musically Complex And Intriguing Without Being Nearly As Pretentious As A Capsule Description Might Indicate, Release Of An Oath Is A Remarkable Piece Of Early American Progressive Rock. Be Aware, However, That It's Quite Brief Even By '60s Standards: The Whole Thing Is Over In 24 And A Half Minutes.” Stewart Mason, All Music Guide.... more details

Electric Prunes - Artifact Artifact
Pop Used - LP HB 69 Heartbeat
Deadly Rare 2006 UK Reissue. “Designed As The Electric Prunes' "Real" Third Album ("The One We Never Got To Make," According To The Liner Notes), Artifact Is A Surprisingly Fresh Slice Of Psychedelic Pop/Rock. From Guitarist Ken Williams' Fuzz-Toned Launch On The Album's Opener, "Lost Dreams," Through A Series Of Wonderful New Original Material And Some Brilliantly Chosen Covers, This Record Proves That The Electric Prunes Haven't Really Lost Any Steps In Their 30-Year "Hiatus." Lead Vocalist James Lowe's Arrogant, Streetwise Growl Has Actually Aged Quite Well, And Even At Times Sounds Like He's Morphed Into Tom Petty, Who Was Doubtlessly Influenced By Lowe As Much As By Roger Mcguinn Or Bob Dylan. Featuring Almost All Of The Original Members Of The Band, The Prunes All Shine On This Record, Underlining The Fact That They Were And Are Fine Players, Despite Their Instrumental Absence On Some Of Their Later Reprise Albums. Lead Guitarist Ken Williams' Playing Still Contains All Of The Tremolo-Soaked, Distorted Fury Of His Earlier Work (Such As "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night"), But Is Also Filled With A Newfound Sense Of Refinement And Craft. The Album Features Some Guest Performances, The Most Notable Being Former Moby Grape Guitarist Peter Lewis, Whose Fingerpicking 12-String Electric Guitar Work On A Slowed-Down Cover Of Love's Classic "7 & 7 Is" Is Positively Brilliant. But The Album's Finest Moment May Be A Version Of Randy Newman's "The Dream I Had Last Night," Which, Aside From Cleverly Echoing Their Aforementioned 1967 "Dream" Single, Is A Cohesive And Brilliantly Arranged And Executed Slab Of Modern-Day Psychedelia. Not A Lot Of Bands From The 1960s Can Regroup After Three Decades, Let Alone Make As Fine A Record As This, And For That Reason Alone, Artifact Is Well-Worth Seeking Out.” – Matthew Greenwald, All Music Guide... more details

Electric Prunes - Mass In F Minor Mass In F Minor
Psych Used - LP RS 6275 Reprise
Stunning 1968 Tri-Color Steamboat Label Stereo Original. Appears Unplayed. “For Fans Of The Electric Prunes, The 1968 Reprise Album Mass In F Minor Is A Disaster, But For Aficionados Of Failed And Bizarre Concept Records Of The Late '60s, It's Definitely Worth Investigating. The Eight Tracks On This Religious-Based Rock Opera (With Lyrics Sung In Latin!) Were Written, Arranged, And Conducted By Classical Composer David Axelrod And Spurred On By Then-Prunes Manager Lenny Poncher And Record Producer Dave Hassinger. Evidently, All Parties Involved, Including The Band, Agreed That This Project Would Propel The Electric Prunes From Minor-League Garage Rockers Into A Finely Tuned Psychedelic Ensemble To Be Taken Seriously As Musicians And Artists. Unfortunately, The Prunes Were Not Prepared To Tackle Axelrod's Complex And Involved Arrangements Without A Major Struggle. In Order To Keep The Sessions From Going Into Costly Overtime, Hassinger Brought In Studio Musicians To Finish The Project. The Results Were Completely Unlike The Group's Previous Two Releases, With The Majority Of The Tracks Being Performed By Ad Hoc Prunes. Shortly After The Album's Release, The Original Lineup Faded Into Obscurity, Taking Mass In F Minor With Them. However, An Eerie Version Of "Kyrie Eleison" Received Fleeting Attention When It Was Featured In The Film Easy Rider.” Al Campbell, AMG.... more details
