The Inner Mystique is the second album by The Chocolate Watchband, released in 1968.

This album is the most well-known output from the band. However, the original first side is not even played by the actual group members.[1]

Don Bennett sings on the first side with studio musicians producer Ed Cobb essembled. Watchband vocalist David Aguilar and the rest of the band return to record the second side. This side is composed of all cover songs, most notably "I'm Not Like Everybody Else", originally by The Kinks. The two tracks, originally sung by David Aguilar, "Meditation" and "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go" featured Don Bennett instead. Ed Cobb was responsible for the change. Cobb had it so Aguilar's vocals were removed and Bennett's were dubbed in its place for the album's release.[2]
