Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night"

Answer: Electric Prunes

The Electric Prunes formed in Los Angeles in 1965 and had their biggest U.S. hit with their second single, 1966's "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night" which reached number 11 on the U.S. Billboard charts and number 49 in the U.K. Their follow-up single, "Get Me to the World on Time", did better in the U.K., reaching number 42, but it only reached number 27 in the U.S.

The original group disbanded in 1968, but their record producer owned the rights to their name, so the Electric Prunes continued to release music with different musicians.

They didn't have much success on the charts but their songs "Kyrie Eleison"/"Mardi Gras" did appear on the "Easy Rider" soundtrack. After releasing five albums, they disbanded in 1970, but in the late 1990s, several members reunited to once again record under the Electric Prunes name.
2. "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag"

Answer: Country Joe and The Fish

Country Joe and The Fish was founded by Country Joe McDonald and Barry "The Fish" Melton who created the Berkley, California, band in 1965. Various other members joined the group until their disbandment in 1970, although they would regroup in later years for occasional performances.

The band's 1967 second album, "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die", was the source of the "I-Feel-Like-I'm- Fixin'-to-Die Rag", which was released as a single but didn't chart. The song however gained popularity from the band's live performances, including their rendition of it at the Woodstock festival in 1969.

In 2001, the heirs of jazz trombonist Kid Ory filed a lawsuit claiming that the song was plagiarized from Ory's 1926 song "Muskrat Ramble", but the suit was dismissed due to the length of time that had passed.
3. "Pictures of Matchstick Men"

Answer: The Status Quo

The Status Quo is the odd group in this assortment because although they were a psychedelic band in the 1960s, they converted to a hard rock/boogie band with their third album, 1970's "Ma Kelly's Greasy Spoon" and had many years of success from then on in the U.K. as "Status Quo", with several personnel changes over the years.

But the band started way back in 1962 first as The Scorpions and then as The Spectres. They settled on the name The Status Quo in 1967, and in 1968 released their hit song "Pictures of Matchstick Men" which reached number 7 in the U.K. and number 12 in the U.S.

They barely reached the charts again in the U.S., hitting number 70 with 1968's "Ice in the Sun", but they continued to having success in the U.K. through the decades.
4. "You're Gonna Miss Me"

Answer: The 13th Floor Elevators

Formed in Austin, Texas, in 1965, the 13th Floor Elevators debut single "You're Gonna Miss Me" was their best-charting single but only reached number 55 on the U.S. billboard charts. They disbanded in 1969 after the release of their third studio album, but their legacy continued on.

Their songs have been covered by ZZ Top, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Primal Scream, among others, and the song "You're Gonna Miss Me" was featured in the film "High Fidelity" and used in a Dell Computers commercial.
5. "Omaha"

Answer: Moby Grape

Moby Grape was formed in 1966 in San Francisco and like the Electric Prunes, had issues with the ownership of their name. Their first manager had ownership rights to the name in his contract, leading to years of legal disputes. The song "Omaha" came from their self-titled 1967 debut album; it only reached number 88 on the Billboard singles chart but it apparently made an impression: In 2008, "Rolling Stone" magazine listed it as number 95 of the greatest guitar songs of all time.

The band continued to record and perform for several decades with different lineups, and in 2006, the band finally won rights to its name.
6. "Hot Smoke and Sasafrass"

Answer: Bubble Puppy

Formed in 1966 in San Antonio, Texas, Bubble Puppy (aka The Bubble Puppy) took its name from a children's game in Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World". Released in 1969, "Hot Smoke and Sasafrass" was their only song to chart, reaching number 14 on the U.S. Billboard charts.

They released their only album "A Gathering of Promises" shortly thereafter and then in 1970, rebranded themselves as Demian, named after the Herman Hesse novel. They didn't have success under their new name and disbanded in 1972.

They reunited in the mid 1980s for an album and then in 2011, a few of the members reunited once again to become a touring band.
7. "You Keep Me Hangin' On"

Answer: Vanilla Fudge

Vanilla Fudge started life as the Electric Pigeons in 1965 before shortening their name to the Pigeons. They changed their name to Vanilla Fudge at the behest of Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertegun, or rather, he just didn't want them to be called the Pigeons; the name Vanilla Fudge came from a fan who said they should call themselves that because they played white soul music.

Their cover of The Supremes hit "You Keep Me Hangin' On" was their biggest hit, reaching number 6 on the U.S. Billboard charts in 1967 and number 2 in Canada in 1968.

The band broke up in 1970 but reunited several times, releasing albums in the 1980s and 2000s.
8. "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet"

Answer: Blues Magoos

The Blues Magoos formed in 1964 in the Bronx, New York and were first known as The Trenchcoats. Their first album "Psychedelic Lollipop" was released in 1966 and the single from the album "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" would become their biggest hit, reaching number 5 on the U.S. Billboard charts. None of their other songs reached the top 50 on the charts, and they disbanded in 1971.

In 2008, three of the original members reunited for a concert which led to a new album in 2014 "Psychedelic Resurrection".
9. "Fresh Air"

Answer: Quicksilver Messenger Service

Formed in San Francisco in 1965, Quicksilver Messenger Service (aka Quicksilver) had more success with their albums than their singles. After a slow start with their self-titled debut album in 1968, their next three studio albums all reached the top thirty on the U.S. Billboard charts as did their 1969 live album "Happy Trails" which was certified gold.

Their best-charting single, "Fresh Air", came from their 1970 album "Just for Love" and reached number 49 on the U.S. Billboard charts. The band's line-up changed over the years and they disbanded in 1979.

Another incarnation of the group, Gary Duncan's Quicksilver started up in the mid 1980s and continued releasing albums into the 2000s.
10. "Incense and Peppermints"

Answer: Strawberry Alarm Clock

An L.A. Band founded in 1967, Strawberry Alarm Clock was pretty much a one-hit wonder. Their first single, "Incense and Peppermints", topped the U.S. Billboard charts in 1967, but their follow-up single, "Tomorrow", only managed to get to number 23 on the Billboard charts.

After four albums, they called it quits in 1971, with one of the founding members, Ed King, joining Lynyrd Skynyrd. Several members of the group reunited in the mid-1970s and then disbanded and then reunited again in the 1980s and toured with other 1960s bands.
