Smoke (1968)

Produced by Kim Fowley and Michael Lloyd (of West Coast Pop Art Experimental fame) this album is a real gem. It's an amalgam of soft psychedelia and pop-sike on a high level. Nearly every song is a winner, only "The Hobbit Symphony" lose its bearings. Strangely the only known reissues were on EMI Greece (Sidewalk/EMI 062-2610441 / 1986) where this rip is from and recently on CD on the South Korean Acid Ray label. Read more about The Smoke here.
