if it were only one of each, id say Tago Mago is definitely THE Can album, imho, as is You for Gong, and In Search of Space for Hawkwind.
Amon Duul II more difficult, but i think i'd go with Wolf City :Smile3:

Future Games (A Magical Kahauna Dream) :Wink3:
Tonto' Expanding Headbad - two albums - Zero Time (1971) and It's About Time (1975ish?) both brilliant.

oops..i was under my girlfriends login...but anyway , i've been listening around a lot of the Canterbury Scene stuff...and 'Joy of a Toy' was one of my favourite...'If I Could Do It All Over Again I'd Do It All Over You' by Caravan is also excellent...but to me not that psychedelic..although its often classed as such.

Top selection FL!
Have to add Comus-First Uttering
Dark & twisted acid folk; one of the finest releases, period.

What about a bit of psychedelic punk

"Give & Take" by Here & Now (actually "All Over the Show" is better but more punky)

There seems to be a bit of prog slipping in to some of these lists though - you'll be recomending ELP next!

Seeing as there is prog trance, no harm if there's some prog rock

Remember that's YOUR opinion, some people reckon Prog trance is rubbish :Smile3:
Of course - its only ever opinion - but prog rock is more widely held to be rubbish!

(I think it was mixmag who did quite an entertaining feature on the similarities between prog rock & prog trance .. and there are many...)
