    For psychedelic Dukes I'd pick "Your Gold Dress"

    Forgot about that one. Another lesser known by SAC is 'Barefoot in Baltimore', which I might like even better. Possibly.

    Ouch! Well I stated my opinion clearly, but obviously my attempt at humor was lost in translation. Of course I don't think anyone with a different opinion must be high. Jeez! In fact I find a little buzz increases musical appreciation. I guess we'll have agree to disagree on the relative merits of that drum solo. Gosh maybe I did go too far if I'm being compared to Daren "One Dimension" Lock...

    Lot more great picks this could make a great psych mix tape although I'd have to leave out In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida since IMO it truly does suck pretty hard.

    Regarding Strawberry Alarm Clock, my favorite of theirs is probably "Pretty Song from Psych-Out.

    Yes, a must and another seminal one. Should have occurred to us right off the bat!

    Great song. So is "Electrallentando".

    After my previously mentioned "Time Has Come Today", I would also heartily endorse not only "The White Ship" & "Electrallentando" but would also add "At The Mountains Of Madness" as well.

    What I love about "The White Ship" is that it achieves its mood and effect entirely through playing, singing, and arrangement, rather than through the use of processing or non- or semi-musical sound elements. The second HPL album (with "Electrallentando" and "At the Mountains of Madness") was more overtly psychedelic, but IMO less coherent as an album (although I was grateful at the time for being introduced to Brewer & Shipley via "Keeper of the Keys") than the first.

    That first album blew me away as a 16-year old in Chicago in 1967, and I credit it (especially "The White Ship") with setting me on the road to prog.

    The Move - I Can Hear the Grass Grow

    See the people all in line,
    what's making them look at me?
    Can't imagine that their minds
    Are thinking the same as me

    I can hear the grass grow
    I can hear the grass grow
    I see rainbows in the evening

    My head's attracted to a
    magnetic wave of sound,
    with streams of coloured circles
    making their way around.

    you get the picture...

    If I had to pick one Beatles song that exemplified their psychedelia, I would go with Within You Without You from Sgt Pepper. George was a cool cat.

    Yes! "Within You Without You". In my distant past I recall tripping with a friend of mine in a tent and listening to that on a good boom box and it hit us as supremely profound. Another song that hit me under similar circumstances was hearing the Paupers "It's Your Mind" believe it or not as campy as that song is.
