This Old Record Is Quite Nice

The Jefferson Handkerchief: I'm Allergic To Flowers (Challenge, 1967)
I'm all for a spot of hippie-baiting exploitation. Written and recorded, apparently, by Challenge Records staffers and "pals", this neatly skewers the newly-grown-hair, candy-stripe trousers wearing, wannabe psychedelic pop groups of the time while managing to be, literally, a great tune with a doctorate in groovy bassline 'n' congaology. "At last my mind is really free," they croon. "Except for my stupid allergy..." (Warning: contains silly chorus). More of this sort of thing here...

Thanks again...
