Here's an odd B-side for you. The flip of the Strawberry Alarm Clock's 'Incense & Peppermints' single. Everyone's heard I&P enough, and probably actually enjoyed it more times than they care to admit- But we don't need to hear it again anytime soon, do we..?. Here's what the kids also got in 1967 when they bought it. The Strange, yet catchy, "Birdman Of Alkatrash." It is what it is, but it's actually kind of a fun song, but i'm biased because i actually dig this hippy trippy goof ball psychedelic crap. I think it's a real hoot.
I don't know for sure, but i don't think this one has been issued on any of the Nuggets/Pebbles type compilations. But what do i know.. I've been wrong before.
After a little gooling, i learned that the song was recorded at the same time as, but not included on the band's debut album. It remained unissued in any other form (other than this) until 1990 when the 'Incense' album came out on CD.
Dig this far out B-side of the band's only hit, man.
