I am listening to an incredible album! It's called "The Doughnuts in Granny's Greenhouse" by The Bonzo Dog Band. One member of the band is Neil Innes who eventually was part of the Rutles. It came out in 1968.

With song titles like "My Pink Half of the Drainpipe" and "Can Blue Man Sing the Whites", this is a psychedelic pop wonderment.

I think you'd dig this stuff if you like any of the late period psychedelic stuff the Beatles did. My wife just came in and said, "Is that the Beatles?"

Paul McCartney, under a pseudonym, produced a track by these guys (not on the recording I have). Their song "The Trouser Press" was the inspiration for an underground rock mag and their song "Death Cab for Cutie" was the inspiration for, well... Death Cab for Cutie.
