The Peppermint Rainbow.

Anyone heard of this band?

Cass Elliot endorsed them. I ordered their CD (the only one they ever made) a few days ago and am eager to listen to it when I get it. If CE thought they were good, then I guess that they were.

Hi TravisJames,
I've never heard of this band. Sounds interesting, though. Maybe Richard or somebody knows more.
Take care,
Nicole :mrgreen:

OK, I got the CD. They are OK, though I can see why they didn't last too long. They sound like the 5th Dimension. Had they gotten some better written material, they probably could have went a long way.

Here is a link to their biggest hit, "Will You Be Staying After Sunday?" I can also hear a bit of "Spanky and Our Gang" in them too (as well as the Fith Dimension, as I said before).

Here is their follow-up hit, "Don't Wake Me Up in the Morning, Michael" - they dropped off the charts after this song.

Hi TravisJames,
I agree with you that The Peppermint Rainbow sounds like the Fifth Dimension and Spanky and Our Gang. I think they also sound like that band The Seekers. You know the ones that did the Coke commercial "Id like to teach the world to sing...
Take care,

I think that was The New Seekers who did that Melanie song "Look What They've Done to My Song Mom", as opposed to The Seekers of "Georgia Girl" fame, but I may be wrong...

Hi John,
Yes, you're right it was the New Seekers, I forgot!
Thanks,
