Electric Prunes - Underground

Here's another Electric Prunes album as requested. Underground, the band's second album is something truly unique. The guys did their homework, wrote some classic songs and produced ,what would be, one of the greatest albums of the sixties. There is no one bad track on this underrated masterpiece. The production is fantastic.. great fuzzy guitars, strange organs, beautiful vocals harmonies and some surprising string arrangments. The lyrics are mystical, sometimes childish ("Antique doll", "Wind up toys", "Children of rain"), Freaky( "Dr. Do- Good"), or sentimental ("Big city"). The melodies are great. "The Great Banana Hoax" is simple but arranged as a one long trip. Others has some crazy chords changes (listen to "wind up toys"). Underground is one of the best offerings of the late sixties. This great album still stands the test of time.
