The Electric Prunes - Hey Mr. President / Flowing Smoothly album FLAC
One of the oddest singles in the Electric Prunes catalog, "Hey, Mister President" is sort of an open letter to the then-recently elected Richard M. Nixon. A pseudo-MC5 inspired hard l vibe surrounds the whole track, which is a sort of "call to arms" youth song that is sadly ineffectual and filled with a great deal of labored teenage rhetoric. The performance, however, is a nice hard rock single, although it is somewhat dated, even by late-1968 rock & roll standards, and it isn't surprising that it went largely unnoticed . Collectors' Choice Music.
smc67 I'm a big fan of the Electric Prunes.

Sorrow Is Born' album. Lucas mc. brae70 Really great.

Although they certainly had an experimental and exploratory side, at least for a garage band, the Electric Prunes were always considered first and foremost a singles band by Reprise Records, and the group’s singles were carefully mixed to sound perfect coming through a mono car radio, while the LP versions of the same songs would be mixed for a home-based stereo. system, which means the radio mixes were much punchier . Hey Mr President – 02:50 19. Flowing Smoothly – 03:06 20. Violent Rose – 02:28 21. Sell – 03:20 22.
Their first album, The Electric Prunes, included the band's two nationally charting songs, "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)" and "Get Me to the World on Time". With the appearance of their second album, Underground, the band was more free to create their own material. However, the original group disbanded by 1968 when they proved unable to record the innovative and complex arrangements by David Axelrod on the albums Mass in F Minor and Release of an Oath. Mr. President", "Flowing Smoothly" (Reprise 0756), 1969. Sell", "Violent Rose" (Reprise 0833), 1969. Love Grows", "Finders, Keepers, Losers, Weepers" (Reprise 0858), 1969.
