The Fun And Games – Elephant Candy (1968)

Artist: The Fun And Games
Title: Elephant Candy
Year: 1968
Format: LP
Label: UNI

This is a lovely little harmony/psych/bubblegum-pop record produced by the great Gary Zekely (the Yellow Balloon, the Clique). It was released on the UNI label in 1968, and is consistent with the high standard of quality their A&R department was known for at the time.

This album sounds a bit like what you’d get if you blended equal amounts of Tommy James, the Association and the Beach Boys (they do a nice cover “Don’t Worry Baby”). If you dig those artists I mentioned, you can’t go wrong with the Fun & Games. The CD has finally been re-issued by Rev-ola with bonus tracks. (jasonbear RYM)

    Hello Leonard
    A worthy album….I listened to it a while back and it hits the spot and takes one out into that ‘place’ called fun…..
