Which brings us to discuss a group called The Strawberry Alarm Clock. In the late 1960’s, we encountered a period of time that came to be known as The Psychedelic Era.
I won’t go into all the Alarm Clock’s history. Suffice to say, “Incense and Peppermints” is still one of those classic songs no matter how hard you try, you can’t get out of your head because you've heard it since 1967 due to 54 years of radio play.
