Record label of Australian release:

Judy in Disguise (With Glasses) is a parody of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, which The Beatles released a year earlier. Instead of the psychedelic sound of the Beatles song, Judy in Disguise is bubblegum pop, but with similarly obtuse lyrics. According to John Fred, John Lennon loved the song. Said Fred: “When I met John Lennon, that’s the first thing he asked me. He thought it was great. He said the first thing he was going to do when he got home was write a song called Froggy in a Pond with Spectacles.”
John Fred Gourrier was a star baseball and basketball player for Southeastern Louisiana University, where he went on scholarship. This was his only hit.
