Offered for sale is a still sealed original stereo pressing of Incense and Peppermints by the Strawberry Alarm Clock, released in 1967 on Universal City Records.
About this copy: The copy offered for sale is an original 1967 sealed stereo pressing; the record is presumably new and unplayed.
There is a punch hole in the upper left hand corner of the cover, right next to the “I” in “Incense” It’s hard to see; we almost missed it.
There is a 6″ break in the shrink wrap at the bottom of the cover and a 4″ break in the wrap at the spine. We’ve secured these breaks with cellophane tape to keep the wrap intact. There is faint wear at the two lower corners near the breaks in the wrap.
A beautiful copy of a terrific LP.
Background: Psychedelic music was largely an underground phenomenon, but for a brief time in the mid-1960s, psych hit the pop charts. Incense and Peppermints by the Strawberry Alarm Clock was one of those rare occasions when psych and the top of the charts met, and the title cut from the album reached #1 on the Billboard Charts in late 1967.
The album of the same name, the band’s first, is generally regarded as their best effort and is also their best-selling LP. The album reached #11 on the U.S. album charts and was the band’s best-selling LP.
It’s also a terrific record, and one we’ve had in our collection for many years.
