Album of the Day
I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)
As the opening track on NUGGETS, “I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)” introduced many to garage rock; a few years before that seminal compilation, it helped introduce The Electric Prunes as the title track to their debut album. The 1967 Reprise collection also included the Seattle-to-Los Angeles transplants' other Top 40 hit, “Get Me To The World On Time,” along with material by pro songwriters Annette Tucker and Nancy Mantz that showed the quintet were game for ballads (“Onie”) and novelties (“Tunerville Trolley”) as well as tough rockers. A half-century on, I HAD TOO MUCH TO DREAM (LAST NIGHT) remains electrifying.
