Strawberry SAC

Strawberry SAC

Profile:
In 1968, a band calling itself Strawberry SAC, featuring Greg Munford (who'd sung lead on Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Incense And Peppermints") recorded twelve songs for a planned album on All-American. Two songs ("In Relation" and "Merry Go Round") were pressed onto a rare promo DJ 7", but the rest of the recordings were only released in 2001, on a vinyl LP from Akarma credited to Crystal Circus and titled after the a-side of that promo 45, In Relation To Our Times.

Greg Munford was never a member of Strawberry Alarm Clock, but had by chance sung lead on the track that would be a fluke hit, one totally unexpected by the band, and by far their biggest success. The band's manager/producer Bill Holmes, always looking to exploit a situation, put Greg Munford in a new band, shamelessly dubbed "Strawberry SAC".

Some sources (like the usually spot-on Richie Unterberger) mention how Strawberry SAC featured a bunch of the same members as Strawberry Alarm Clock, but this is a misleading exaggeration: only Greg Munford could be classified in this category, and even he was not technically in SAC at any time.
