The Peppermint Rainbow

The Peppermint Rainbow were an American sunshine pop group from Baltimore, Maryland. They formed in 1967 under the name New York Times, and played local gigs in the mid-Atlantic states before changing their name to the Peppermint Rainbow in 1968. They were signed to Decca Records at the behest of Cass Elliot, who saw them play and sang with them on-stage when they performed a medley of Mamas & The Papas tunes.

Under Decca the group was produced by Paul Leka; their first single was "Walking in Different Circles" b/w "Pink Lemonade", but it did not chart. Their second single, "Will You Be Staying After Sunday", hit the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #32 in 1969. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.

Their third release, "Don't Wake Me Up in the Morning, Michael", hit #54 the same year.
Their LP, Will You Be Staying After Sunday, barely missed the Top 100 of the album charts, peaking at #106, and in 1970 the band split up.
