July, July (1968)
The minor single that showed up on the standard Nuggets-style psyche compilations is "My Clown," a slow, headphone-friendly groove that sounds like the perfect encapsulation of the psyche-pop sound of the age (such that it almost sounds like an 80s retro-psychedelic tribute a la the Dukes of Stratosphear as much as an authentic 60s track). Other stand-outs include the bluesier "Dandelion Seeds," coming across like an early Moody Blues demo, and the quirky pop of "Jolly Mary."
Some of the album gets a little too deep into almost Zappa-like weirdness and over-the-top faux psyche kitsch (i.e. "The Way"), and the vocals are at times a little too twee (Syd Barrett as reinterpreted by the Television Personalities). But there are enough choice nuggets here to make this a worthy entry in the genre and one that is all but essential for those who still enjoy their old Kaleidoscope and Nirvana (UK) and Status Quo vinyl.
Here's a recently reunited band with a surprisingly awesome live run through "My Clown":
