ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND
THE ELECTRIC PRUNES: CALIFORNIA, cd 2004
Long after massive hits like ”I Had Too Much To Dream”, original Prunes James Lowe, Mark Tulin and Ken Williams, plus 1968 line-up drummer Joe Dooley and more recent member, guitarist Mark Moulin recorded “California” in 2004. To quote the band: “CALIFORNIA is a collection of songs that reflects the band’s memories and experiences of a better time in an iconic place. A time of innocence and rock and roll. A time when people still believed you could find gold in California. Could such a place still exist? Take a few steps back and come flying…”.
Jerry Kranitz: “So does the place still exist that the Prunes pine away for? It does on this album. We’ve got a solid collection of well written, catchy songs. A sense of fun pervades throughout the album as the Prunes plough through a rockin’ set of numbers that blend the California sound they seek with good ‘ol down ‘n dirty psychedelic garage rock. There some great psychedelia on the album (…)” .

Long before he became famous and recorded his own albums as The Graham Bond Organization, composer -singer but first and foremost keyboard player and saxophonist GRAHAM BOND had been in a variety of bands, often with a more jazz-oriented repertoire. The pre-Orginzation bands that carried his name could be a trio or a quartet or something else. Some members of Bond’s bands became more famous than the man himself, notably Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin and the Colosseum duo of Dick Heckstall-Smith and Jon Hiseman.
Here’s a great and detailed bio of the man by Borge Skilbrigt http://grahambond.org/biography.html
