Music today has been The Electric Prunes, best known for their single I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night), written by what was unusual for the day, a female songwriting team of Annette Tucker and Nancy Mantz. In fact, Mantz and Tucker wrote most of the songs on the album with singer James Lowe only writing two of the songs, much to the frustration of the band and the songwriting team of Lowe and bassist Mark Tulin who had none. It made them come across as a staged psychedelic band which in fact they weren’t but in those days it was hard to argue with the producer (Dave Hassinger). Having said that, I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night) has endured as a psychedelic garage band classic.
