THE ELECTRIC PRUNES - 'Everybody Knows You're In Love'/'You've Never Had It Better' (Reprise RS 20652) February 1968
Recorded in late 1967 at American Recording Co studios in Hollywood, the flip of this record 'You've Never Had It Better' catches The Electric Prunes in a raunchy mood. The song is in complete contrast to the plug side 'Everybody Knows You're Not In Love' which is a soft pop number written by Lowe and Tulin.
But it's the psychedelic rocker 'You've Never Had It Better' that gets my nod and entry in my L.A. Select list. Check out the pulsating buzzsaw-fuzztone opening riff, straight away you know you're in for a heavy ride....settle down and take that fuzz trip.
