The original vinyl LP cover art.Strawberry Alarm Clock contributed two new songs to the soundtrack of the 1971 Russ Meyers movie Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls. The songs are “Girl From The City” and “I’m Comin’ Home”, both with latter-era vocalist Paul Marshall. (“Incense And Peppermints” is also in the movie, though not on the soundtrack album.) Besides Strawberry Alarm Clock, the album has songs by the Sandpipers, and by Stu Phillips sung by Carrie Nations, among others.
The soundtrack album for Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls is readily available from new and used vinyl LP vendors, and an expanded CD version with bonus tracks is in print and widely available. “Girl From The City” is in fact available on the Japanese bonus-track version of the Good Morning Starshine CD; however, “I’m Comin’ Home” is only available on this soundtrack, so a copy of Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls on LP or CD is necessary for Strawberry Alarm Clock collectors or completists.
Sadly, Beyond The Valley of The Dolls is the last project Strawberry Alarm Clock was involved with until their 21st-century resurgence; soon after this the fractured band finally split up for good, at least until some 1980s reunion tours.
