    I've previously suggested that "The White Ship" is proto-Prog, with one foot firmly in psych, the other striding forward toward .... something else.

    Well, I think I would have to go with "Within You, Without You," as well.

    However, here's my favorite runner-up:



    The music is more R&B, but the sentiment is straight out of the psychedelic underground.

    Also, all the H.P. Lovercraft mentions are right on the money!

    Major kudos for mentioning that one. Great track. That also happens to be the second album I ever owned (In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was the fifth).

    T2 - Morning

    Yeah, I know, it's proto-prog. But it still has enough feet in the psych world.

    Got to give it psych cred just for the cover!

    Probably wouldn't be my choice, but I'm a little surprised no one's selected The Factory -"Path Through The Forest"

    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    Probably either Burning of the Midnight Lamp or Voodoo Child (Slight Return).

    Or Brown Shoes Don't Make it.

    I would certainly concur with Eight Miles High and Slip Inside This House as mentioned earlier in the thread. Smell Of Incense by the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band is another favourite pysch tune of mine.

    If push came to shove, though, I think I'd have to go with The Ballad of You and Me and Pooneil by the Airplane.

    Agree "The Fool" is right up there.

    It might seem more like a Space Rock Song now, but since it was made before the "space rock" designation was created and was clearly made by a Psychedelic band:

    Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun: Pink Floyd

    Can I have several? lol

    Just from the more well known end of the spectrum -

    Tomorrow Never Knows
    I Am The Walrus
    2000 Light Years From Home
    Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.

    Lot of great and intersting picks, keep 'em coming I say!

    For me, this has to be part of any all-time psych list. This was the epitome of the stoned psyched ethos for me back in the day:


    Not to mention one of my fave album covers

    Lots of great songs already mentioned i would agree are favorites. So rather than try and outdo the rest i'll just throw something out there who's band name is the 'ultimate' psych band name and is plenty long enough to get your freak on.

    I've always liked that she's not just any old Death Goddess, but she's a hip Death Goddess.

    Nice to see that one fished out - I still have the original vinyl. Part of the "Bosstown Sound" which included Orpheus, Earth Opera, Beacon Street Union, Chamaeleon Church, Ford Theatre and several others. Deserving of it's own (OT) thread perhaps.

    Love the psychedelia of Ultimate Spinach, but it does sound kind of cheesy now, while that of the Byrds, H.P. Lovecraft, Quicksilver, the Airplane, and a few others doesn't sound quite as dated.

    Electric Ladyland is a goldmine of psychedelia, i played the hell out of that when i first installed a cassette player in my old VW bus.

    And for today, i think i will choose this 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be) as my favorite psych song of all time (sorry i couldn't find the original on yootoob however this Allman Bros cover ain't too shabby)
