About Incense and Peppermints. In early 1967, the band was still known as Thee Sixpence and had released four singles under that name. Keyboardist Mark Weitz had come up with most of the music for an unnamed song including the intro, the verses and the ending. He brought in guitarist Ed King, later of Lynyrd Skynyrd, to co-write the bridge and the guitar parts. The song was initially released in April 1967 as the B side to the A side song The Birdman Of Alkatrash (by Weitz) under the Thee Sixpence name. It features the misspelling Pepermints.
