The Byrds. 5D is freaking spectacular, and it just beats The Doors' debut with a greater slew of outstanding songs, ... though maybe none of them are as good as "The Crystal Ship", ... but I may be wrong. Who cares?

Jimi Hendrix (Soft Machine to me are more a 70s band)

And before somebody starts sending me the release date of SM albums....I mean "to me" Wink

Of course Doors and Moody Blues would have deserved my vote as well

Moody Blues.  It was real close between them and the Softs, but several people acknowledged they're more of a 70s band, so that helped me decide.  The Moody Blues (along with Beatles) was the first band I ever listened to.  I was a big fan by the age of five, and those seven classic albums are never far out of reach.

Your other poll has the Velvet Underground as a "hippy" band, which they weren't at all. In fact, they stood in opposition to the whole flower power thing.

My favorite "hippy" band would be Sly & the Family Stone. They were multiracial, they played at Woodstock, they sang about peace and love, and they saw the writing on the wall pretty quickly, with "There's a Riot Goin' On" (which might be thought of as the VU & Nico album of soul/r&b).

Oh yeah, my favorite hippy album is Love's "Forever Changes." That album magically transports me to a time and place that i've never been to but is in many of our collective imaginations about the 60s. Brilliant, beautiful album.

Of these choices it's a toss up between the Doors and Jimi Hendrix, so I won't vote.
