RARE BEAT - GARAGE ROCK AND PSYCHEDELIC
THE LEMON PIPERS
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

The band was formed in 1966 by student musicians from Oxford, Ohio, who had played the college bars with their previous groups that included The Wombats. "Green Tambourine" was the primary hit, as well as the title track to their debut-album Green Tambourine. The song has been credited as being the first bubblegum pop chart-topper. Released towards the end of 1967, it peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In 1968 earned the group a gold record for over a million copies sold. It was also the first U.S. number-one hit for the Buddah label. The Lemon Pipers would never repeat this success, although "Rice Is Nice" and "Jelly Jungle" did make it onto the charts in 1968. The song "Green Tambourine" is the story of a street musician pleading for someone to give him money. In exchange, he would play his "green" tambourine, "green" referencing the color of United States currency. The song's instrumentation contains the title tambourine as well as an electric sitar, a frequent signature of the so-called "psychedelic sound." The song has been covered by; Status Quo, Lawrence Welk, Tripping Daisy and Mrs. Miller.
