Strawberry Alarm Clock: Incense And Peppermints

Strawberry Alarm Clock is a psychedelic rock band best known for their 1967 hit "Incense and Peppermints". They are often thought of as a "one-hit wonder", even though having charted five songs, including two Top 40 hits.

Dawn, Ever wonder why their other "hits" sounded different?
Ok the legend goes that they could not get the vocal right, so they went outside the studio foe "a break" saw a homeless guy outside. they started talking one thing lead to another(I'm really shorting this story) and he got them to let him try the vocal , which he nailed left the studio and was never seen again. I've heard this story more than once.

They could not find him, notice on the clip really no one is really stepping out on the lead vocal.
