UK, 1967, psychedelic rock / psychedelic pop

Pink FloydThe Piper at the Gates of Dawn: Such a mystical meandering of mysterious music from the late 60s, from a band that would morph into something (equally splendid, btw) that would sound nothing like this. This is a conjuration of psychedelic musical spirits caught in the organ and the dreamy guitar. The drumming and the laughter–at times quite tribal in feel. Like a religious ceremony. And then they turn around and sing silly songs about gnomes, gingerbread men, and aging mice named Gerald. Splendid!
