Thirty-eight years ago tomorrow (1/20/68), the Strawberry Alarm Clock played downtown's Community Concourse. Though they performed their hit "Incense and Peppermints," the record's 16-year-old lead singer, Greg Munford, was not onstage.

"He was never in the band," says bassist George Bunnell. "He was only around long enough to sing the song; it was supposed to be a demo. Lee [Freeman], the singer, didn't want to do it.... Greg happened to be in the studio that day; he had the same manager as us, and he ended up being the guy on the single."
