I saw the seeds In 1967 with the doors in Santa Barbara. I still love them and attended new documentary about them two years ago and got to hang out with Darrell hooper,teaches music in Northern Cal now. Very sad about sky saxon. I think they were more popular in California especially Southern Cal then the rest of the world but they are incredible

Not really a " psychedelic " band. But their two sixties psychedelic albums " Between the buttons " and " Their Satanic majesties request " are classics of the psychedelic era. Their Satanic majesties request album did get when it came out bad reviews and still now many Rolling Stones fans concider this album as one of their worst albums. For me it's a masterpiece of psychedelic music. Just listen to songs like " Citadel ", " In another land ", " she's a Rainbow ", " The Lantern ", " 2000 Lightyears from home "... All masterpieces! And their psychedelic baroque singles such as " Lady Jane ", " Ruby Tuesday " or " Child of the moon ", " We love you ", " Paint it black ". They definitively belong on this list because their " psychedelic moment " in the sixties is part of the history of psychedelic music.
Why is this this on the list
