What many consider to be their finest moments on record, "Wake Up" is an excellent LP from start to end. Much like their first LP, the group dominated the song writting and great tunes are the fore! This was the first LP by the now 5 piece Alarm Clock, Gary Lovetro had left prior to the recording of this LP. Also around this time, the band was featured in the movie "Psych-Out" in which they performed the theme song and played at the club.
