Lost Dreams

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Aside from the British anthology Long Day's Flight, this is as of its 2001 release the only legit Electric Prunes best-of ever issued. For the most part it succeeds in encapsulating the band's finest moments, adding a few rarities that will make it a desirable acquisition for completists. Their best singles are here, including the hits "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night" and "Get Me to the World on Time," of course, as well as "Dr. Do-Good," "Long Day's Flight 'Til Tomorrow," and their non-LP debut, "Ain't It Hard"/"Little Olive."

Aside from the British anthology Long Day's Flight, this is as of its 2001 release the only legit Electric Prunes best-of ever issued. For the most part it succeeds in encapsulating the band's finest moments, adding a few rarities that will make it a desirable acquisition for completists. Their best singles are here, including the hits "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night" and "Get Me to the World on Time," of course, as well as "Dr. Do-Good," "Long Day's Flight 'Til Tomorrow," and their non-LP debut, "Ain't It Hard"/"Little Olive." Outstanding album tracks like "I Happen to Love You," "Sold to the Highest Bidder," and "Train to Tomorrow" are on board as well. The truly awful cuts from their first LP are omitted, although the exclusion of decent items from Underground, particularly "Antique Doll" and "Children of Rain," could be questioned. As for the rarities, there's "Shadows," a creepy item from an excruciatingly rare non-LP 1968 promo single; an inconsequential cover of the Hollies' "I've Got a Way of My Own"; the previously unreleased "World of Darkness," an amiably bouncy but inessential number; and their infamous 1967 commercial for Vox wah-wah pedals unlisted on the sleeve. For those who care about such things, "Dr. Do-Good" and "Long Day's Flight 'Til Tomorrow" have elongated fadeouts not present on the more commonly circulated versions. The slightly shorter Edsel compilation Long Day's Flight is probably a better listen overall and does include "Children of Rain" and "Antique Doll", but either one makes for a satisfactory overview. Like Long Day's Flight, however, this has nothing from their Mass in F Minor album, which might be viewed as either a loss or a gain by Electric Prunes fans according to their tastes. As a minor drawback, Lost Dreams does not document the original release dates of any of the tracks.
