    Since The Zombies were mentioned I thought a thread on your fave `60s albums would be cool.

    Here`s my picks:

    Laura Nyro-Eli And The 13th Confession:soul/pop with some jazzy touches.None of her others record effect me like this one.

    I hope The Pretty Things are on that list.

    Fairport Convention-What We Did On Our Holidays and Liege And Lief:celtic traditionalism meets hippie rock.Sandy Denny`s crystaline vocals and Richard Thompson`s fret work.Great harmonies too.

    I would just be happy with the single Rosalyn. :D But definitely my favorite is Their self titled album.

    Tim Buckley-Goodbye And Hello and Happy Sad:incredible voice.Happy Sad was jazz meets folk while Goodbye was a more summer of love thing.

    Miles Davis-Nefertiti

    His great quintet of the mid `60s was one of jazz`s greatest bands.The title track is weird,just a repeated theme over and over again.

    Roland Kirk-We Free Kings

    Kirk was a true original jazzman.He played 3 saxophones at the same time,he also was a master of the flute.Did I mention he was blind?

    It’s a great album. Just hearing Phil May sing the beginning of Roadrunner…"I’m a roadrunner honey" is well worth picking it up.

    Pentangle-Basket Of Light:UK folk group with some jazz thrown in.Bert Jansch and John Renbourn were a great two guitar team.Jacqui McShee`s vocals are excellent.

    Scott Walker-4:big orchestration and beautiful songs.Walker`s voice sounds loungy at first but give him a chance.
