Various Artists - Piccadilly Sunshine Part 12 (1967-70 uk, pop psych and other flavours)



Don't think that there's nothing to be found just because it's Vol. 12. This series may've just taken a step up or two. Effervescent and dreamy UK popsike singles with way too many sound effects. A few detours for Animals-style R'n'B. 

Connections to Steve Hillage, Cat Stevens, the Syn. A couple of bands are Irish and there's one that's from Sri Lanka. Mostly though, it's TV starlets who were moving into singing, a great Scott Walker knockoff with a dash of prog (Egg's 'You Are All Princes'), and some slight missteps by Larry Page or Pye.
