Electric Prunes Reissues
(PR) When you mention the Electric Prunes, the Nuggets-era garage/psychedelic hits “Too Much To Dream Last Night” and “Get Me to the World on Time” generally come to mind. But unlike many of their one-or-two-hit contemporaries, the Electric Prunes never really went away. Or at least the name stayed alive while the personnel changed completely. It’s all part of one of the most bizarre stories in rock ’n’ roll history. But before we elaborate, we’d like to announce that the Prunes’ two final Warner Bros./Reprise albums — Release of an Oath (1968) and Just Good Old Rock and Roll (1969) — will be reissued on Collectors’ Choice Music on March 13, completing the label’s reissues of all things Prune.
The original Electric Prunes, of "Too Much To Dream" fame, were a talented and inventive band that made several good records under difficult circumstances. They were not, as many sources inaccurately claimed, an anonymous studio project or a front group for behind-the-scenes players. They were a real band that found itself in a bind because they were signed to a production deal with producer/engineer Dave Hassinger, who in turn signed them to Warner/Reprise through his own production deal. Hassinger also produced the Grateful Dead for Warners.
