    Mine too! Cool but emotive singer and in Pretty ballerina he really shines.
    I'm googling to find a Steve Martin bio and can't seem to find a good one. Now I read someone that says his mother is a Spanish Flamenco giitarist and that he was born in Puerto Rico (?). If you find out something, please let me know.

    I like Odessa best of these. Rounding out a top five in some order are Forever Changes, Magical Mystery Tour, Satanic Majesties and Millennium's Begin.

    Baroque and psychedelic are not interchangeable.

    I think The Smoke (Michael Lloyd) from 1968 is worth a shout

    The Association - Insight Out, Gene Clark - With the Gosdin Brothers, and The Hollies - Butterfly should be mentioned here as well.

    Agreed stylistically but these are inferior to the majority of the songs listed by the OP, right?

    I own and enjoy these 3 but the others are in another league.

    Ok, I know I would definitely put
    Sgt Pepper’s and Satanic Majesties
    in the same umbrella category.

    So what are we calling that genre?
    I get the impression this was the OP’s point.

    I enjoy them more than some of the albums in the poll, but that wasn't the reason I added them. I just saw everybody else adding other suggestions, and I thought them worthy of at least a mention.
