The Boston Tea Party is a psychedelic 60's band from Burbank, California that formed in 1963. Originally the band formed as a surf outfit but by the mid-'60s reinvented themselves as a psych band. The group debuted with the 1967 single "Words" b/w "Spinach" released by the small Big Boss label and later on reissued by Gene Autry's Challenge Records. A pair of follow-ups also did little ("Is It Love?" b/w "Don't Leave Me Alone" and "Free Service" b/w "Rose In the Night"). The first released by, the MGM affiliated, Flick Disc label, 1968 saw the quintet debut with their first LP - the cleverly-titled "The Boston Tea Party".
