"Green Tambourine is the first album by the American band The Lemon Pipers. It was released in early 1968 after the band's bubblegum single of the same name had topped the charts in the US.
The album revealed the wide division between the musical tastes of the band and the commercial demands of the band's label, Buddah Records. Five bubblegum tracks written by Brill Building songwriters Paul Leka and Shelley Pinz shared space on the album with folk-rock ("Ask Me If I Care"), blues-rock ("Straglin' Behind," "Fifty Year Void") and psychedelic tracks ("Through With You," running over than nine minutes and bearing influences of The Byrds, particularly their John Coltrane-infused song "Eight Miles High"). Leka was the album's credited producer." (Wikipedia)
