Culpeper's Orchard: S/T (1971)
Following a brief intro, "Mountain Music Part 1" wastes no time in setting the tone for the album, beginning with a jangly, mellow blend of folky psychedelia before blasting off into a blistering, Cream-like jam session, ultimately seguing back into a nice folky outro. Others, like the Moby Grape-like "Hey You People," showcase the band's solid harmonizing; "Ode To Resistance" extends a similar vibe from a Byrds-y opening to a Jefferson Airplane psychedelic blast-off. The multi-part suite "Teaparty for an Orchard" blends British folk/prog (part Fairport Convention, part Jethro Tull) with some psychedelic sonics and harder rock.
It may lack any truly transcendent stand-out tunes to catapult it into the top tier of either late-period psych or early prog, but it's fun and energetic throughout, with an amped-up edge that avoids the more meandering tendencies of some bands in this space. Plus, it sounds great on headphones.
