2008 release. Exact-repro reissue on 180 gram vinyl. One of Fred (Dead Moon) Cole's earliest bands. "'You Must Be A Witch' by the Lollipop Shoppe was one of the most ferocious garage punk singles of the 1960s, a savage blast of paranoia and electric guitar that became a sought-after collectable among garage fanatics and one of the high points of the Nuggets box set. The tune was powerful enough that one had to wonder how a group so fierce would come up with a name as silly as the Lollipop Shoppe, and the truth is they didn't: they were known as the Weeds until their manager scored them a deal with Uni Records, who found their original moniker too outré (the marijuana reference didn't help) and saddled them something a bit more 'mod'. The Lollipop Shoppe cut just one album, 1967's Just Colour, and 'You Must Be A Witch' is easily the most hard-edged cut on the record, but if the Lollipop Shoppe don't hit quite as hard on the other 11 tunes, the material is strong enough to impress any fan of vintage garage or psychedelia." -- All Music
