THE PEPPERMINT TROLLEY COMPANY - "Trust" EP (Dot EP-44-3) 1968
I've loved the music of The Peppermint Trolley Company since the late 80s after buying their Acta label album based on the description offered by the seller, it was something like 'Californian sunshine pop with a bubblegum edge' - well that sounded right up my street and I never looked back.
They've appeared on my blog before. Today I'll promote their rare Portuguese EP released on Dot Records. As you probably know The Peppermint Trolley Company were an Acta label group (Acta was a subsidiary label of Dot set up primarily to release psychedelic rock music). So quite how the Portuguese four song EP came about on Dot is unknown.
All four songs can be found on their studio album but only "Sunrise" written by Pat McClure was never released at 45 r.p.m. This is why, for vinyl nerds like me, this EP is essential.
