Mass in F Minor is the third studio album by American rock band The Electric Prunes, released in 1968. It consists of a musical setting of the mass sung in Latin and Greek and arranged in the psychedelic style of the band, and was written and arranged by David Axelrod.

Produced under license from Warner Bros. Los Angeles, CA 90025-4900.

Underground is the second studio album by the American garage rock band, The Electric Prunes, and was released in 1967 on Reprise Records. It would be the final album of any materialized input by band members until the 1969 "New Improved" Electric Prunes were formed. The album was a moderate chart hit, but, without a hit-ready single, the band could not repeat their past success. In 2011, it was included in NME's "The 100 Greatest Albums You've Never Heard" list, chosen by Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT.

MASS IN F MINOR combined classical music, Gregorian vocals sung in Latin, and psychedelia, resulting in a fascinating amalgam that makes for enthralling listening. Unfortunately, the members of The Electric Prunes weren’t able to master Axelrod’s compositions as quickly as the established timetable required, which resulted in the band getting assistance from a Canadian group called The Collectors. They later evolved into the band Chilliwack. You may know the album’s opening track, Kyrie Eleison, from its appearance in Easy Rider, but unless you’re a diehard Electric Prunes fan, you may well be unfamiliar with the album in its entirety. Although MASS IN F MINOR did succeed in besting the commercial success of its predecessor by climbing to on the Billboard 200, it scored no hits on the Hot 100, and before the year was over, The Electric Prunes had disbanded.

For fans of the Electric Prunes, the 1968 Reprise album Mass in F Minor is a disaster, but for aficionados of failed and bizarre concept records of the late '60s, it's definitely worth investigating. The eight tracks on this religious-based rock opera (with lyrics sung in Latin!) were written, arranged, and conducted by classical composer David Axelrod and spurred on by then-Prunes manager Lenny Poncher and record producer Dave Hassinger. Unfortunately, the Prunes were not prepared to tackle Axelrod's complex and involved arrangements without a major struggle. The results were completely unlike the group's previous two releases, with the majority of the tracks being performed by ad hoc Prunes.

Loved Mass in F Minor from the moment I heard it when it first came out. Very hard to find decent religious music and I was happy with this album. I hoped it would start a trend but "Christian Rock" really went south. This is an interesting album, primarily because most of it is performed by The Collectors, who were a much better band than the Electric Prunes. Published on November 30, 2014.
