Best Psychedelic Albums Which Came Out Before Revolver by the Beatles

Not all of these albums are entirely Psychedelic, however, they all have tracks which I call Psychedelic, and they all Came out before August 1966.

The Top Ten

1 Fifth Dimension - The Byrds
2 Freak Out! - Frank Zappa/The Mothers of Invention

While I would not call it entirely Psychedelic by any means because a lot of the tracks is Parody, Doo-Wop, and Comedy Rock. However, there is definitely quite a few Psychedelic tracks on here. It even helped influence The Beatles Album, SGT. Pepper. - RogerWatersfan1999

3 Roger the Engineer - The Yardbirds
4 Rubber Soul - The Beatles

Sure, it's also not entirely Psychedelic, it's more Folk Rock. However, I feel Norwegian Wood and Nowhere Man are Psychedelic songs. - RogerWatersfan1999

The weed album.

5 The Missing Links - The Missing Links

Sure this album is more Garage Rock for sure, but I feel it has some early Psychedelic Leanings, especially for 1965. - RogerWatersfan1999

6 The Rolling Stones - Aftermath

Just like The Missing Links, this is definitely more Garage Rock, However, I feel Paint it Black, and Under my thumb are Psychedelic songs. - RogerWatersfan1999

7 The Seeds - The Seeds

Just like the last two, this is more Garage Rock for sure. However, I feel it has some Psych Leanings, and I feel Evil Hoodoo is an Early Psych Track. - RogerWatersfan1999

8 Love - Love

Has some Psych Tracks - RogerWatersfan1999

9 Black Monk Time - Monks

This is more Proto-Punk. However, I've heard some people call it Psychedelic. - RogerWatersfan1999

10 Having A Rave Up With The Yardbirds - The Yardbirds

Has some Proto-Psych tracks. - RogerWatersfan1999

The Contenders

11 The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators - The 13th Floor Elevators

One of the best psychedelic rock albums of all time!
