Specs, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll

I loved this song as a kid in 1967.  John Fred and His Playboys  “Judy in Disguise (with Glasses)”  This puke-green psycho-billy, titty shaker sleeve from Denmark is misleading as the song is a kind of bubblegum knock-off of  “Lucy in the Skies with Diamonds”.  The California Records label also a bit odd!

Judy in disguise, well that’s what you are
Lemonade pie with a brand new car.
Cantalope eyes come to me tonight
Judy in disguise with glasses.
