This Chicago band was best known for their huge hit "Bend Me, Shape Me". "Pumpkin, Powder, Scarlet And Green" was their third album (Acta/Dot SMD 74445 / 1968) and it's a pretty good one indeed. "Cool It" for instance was a hit that never was, very danceable and powerful that nearly touches Northern Soul territory. "Welcome You're In Love" and "Master Of My Fate" (with sitar) were the other winners. Not a lost gem but except for "The Right To Cry" and "Music To Think By" a constantly good record although there's a bit too much brass at times.
