Press Quotes

It's not a masterpiece but there are touches of true psychedelic weirdness dropped into each bubblegum pop tune, like the backwards tracked sounds on 'No Letter Today,' the acid rock guitar solo on 'Little Dum Dum' and the adorably wonky raga influence on 'Lonely Are The Lonely.' Not the most essential release for RSD but a worthwhile pickup for students of '60s pop.

     —Robert Ham, Paste

This still very much buoyantly effervescent, colorfully vibrant album opens on the upbeat, joyful and abundantly soulful title track which features strings, brass, sitar, breathing sounds, and even dissonant string sounds and the euphoric-charged Agnes English

     —Anne Carlini, Russell Trunk's Exclusive Magazine

Judy in Disguise was a #1 single for John Fred & His Playboy Band. Alas, the group never had a Top 40 hit again. That's unfortunate because, as this new collection demonstrates, Fred and his versatile accompanists had a lot to offer.
