"He's In Town" is one gorgeous record. I tend to pair 45s together and that one's twin is "Funny How Love Can Be"  by The Ivy League, another stunner:

A great album, with a wonderful mix of styles, all carried off with flair--even this tough r'n'b cut. The next track, "Through With You",  is the one for me, though...

Another SuperMetroid special--Tangerine Dream by the UK band Kaleidoscope now enjoys a reputation on a par with Pink Floyd's Piper... And it's easy to see hear why. From that 1967 album, this is the wonderfully named "(Further Reflections) In The Room Of Percussion":

Nice! I like Entwistle's comment: "We wanted to put 'cellos on the track but Kit Lambert said we couldn't afford it. That's why we sing 'cello, cello, cello, cello,'...where we thought they should be."

Here's another from the "Keepers" list of psych-related LPs I'm gradually working my way through, leaving out things I know (or know I don't like). From 1967, these are The Freeborne with "Land Of Diana":

There's an Association thread at PSF started by malc (Malcolm C. Searles), who has just written a book about that band:

This is still my favourite of theirs--a Tandyn Almer special:

I was reminded of this lovely song from '66 when working my way through a list of (almost) all good stuff. John Sebastian may have written "A Younger Girl" and recorded it with the Spoonful but The Critters took it to greater heights in my opinion.

My grandson sang this as his solo piece during a recent concert given by his kiddies' choir:
