Mass In F Minor and Release Of An Oath were vehicles for arranger/composer David Axelrod. he basically used session musicians on these two albums after he realised the Prunes weren't up to realising his 'grand vision' guffaw<. The last album is awful pedestrian rubbish. Avoid at all costs as, again, it's not the original band. So - this box set, whilst looking quite attractive, really isn't such great shakes if you're a fan of the original Prunes garage band sound. But if you get it cheap then fair enough. My recommendation is to get the Long Day's.
When is an Electric Prunes album not really an Electric Prunes album? The Electric Prunes scored a pair of hits in 1967, "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)" and "Get Me to the World on Time," but after their second album yielded no singles, the group's producer Dave Hassinger (who controlled their record deal) and manager Lenny Poncher (who owned the group's name) decided the Prunes should try something more ambitious, and they brought in arranger and composer David Axelrod to help. This two-fer reissue pairs up these curiosities on one disc, and while Mass in F Minor sounds marginally more like the Prunes than Release of an Oath, with its fuzz and wah-wah-infused guitars and Farfisa organ lines bobbing in and out of the arrangements (it even earned a bit of FM radio play after the interpretation of "Kyrie Eleison" made.

The dark orchestrations of David Axlerod that made that so unique are also on Release Of An Oath: Searing acid guitars, footsteps of God bass, echoing gothic drums. This is the 3:47 in the morning 1968 FM music that everyone but hardcore music people, and perhaps sampling DJs, forgot. Amazing both for its historical strangeness and obscurity and for its overriding nuance. While the first album "Mass in F Minor" had its moments, where you could feel a bit to the original group, "Release of an Oath" is really a dead duck. Dull and weak compositions arranged with strings which in most cases are outright annoying in their annoying high-pitched sound and unexciting harmonies.
