14. The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - Here's Where You Belong

This was their first album for Reprise was the best of the group's career, in large part because it was the most song-oriented. It was still plenty weird, almost to the point of stylistic schizophrenia, but when you got down to it, much of the record was comprised of fairly catchy songs in the neighborhood of two and three minutes. At times they sounded like reasonably normal, fairly talented Byrds-like folk-rockers such as "Transparent Day," and P.F. Sloan's "Here's Where You Belong". Others songs had a Kinks-like garage band sound like "If You Want This Love". And at others, a fey Baroque pop outfit (the orchestrated "Will You Walk With Me").

From the album: Part One
Released: 1967
