The Moon: Without Earth (1968)
The songs are largely post-Sgt. Pepper-inspired eclectic pop with enough trippy signifiers (flanged vocals, backwards drums, the occasional sitar, weird chord changes) to keep them firmly in the psychedelic sphere. A few songs stand out, most notably the wonderful Byrdsy psychedelia of "Never Mind," a Nuggets-worthy classic if there ever was one; the upbeat Turtles-like pop of "Mothers And Fathers"; and the dated-yet-fun sitar/harpsichord drenched "Brother Lou's Love Colony" (a cover of a song from another minor psyche band, Colours). For the most part if falls into the lighter side of psyche, approaching sunshine pop, reminiscent of early Bee Gees or Moody Blues.
It's a fun listen overall. The CD version I have appends the follow-up (self-titled) album, which dropped some of the more obvious psychedelic kitsch for a mellow balladry, arguably a better album but lacking some of that late 60s playfulness.
There's a playlist of the album rip over on YouTube.
Meanwhile, here's a trippy little light show for "Never Mind":
