*This artist had a huge backlog of unused compositions ready to record when the band he was in broke up. 1970 brought a truly historic release of songs and material that managed the rare feat of conveying spiritual mysticism without sacrificing his gifts for melody and grand, sweeping arrangements, many containing lush orchestral production and superb slide guitar. Name the artist...
*This piano-driven cut is the first track on the artist's 1971 classic album. It is also the most sexual song on the album...something the artist seldom used in her overall marketing of her music. The piano hook and very forthright lyrics earned her a great deal of respect with women who could relate to her songs and outlook. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*When interviewed about this particular song, the artist said the first line was written on an acid trip one weekend. The 2nd line was written on the next acid trip the next weekend and everything else was filled in when he met his future wife. The song was largely (in the artist's mind) a put down of Hare Krishna, somewhat popular around the time in the late 1960's. Name the artist and the song. Extra credit for the name of the band the artist was part of when it was recorded...
*One of the great albums of the eclectic post-Sgt. Pepper era of the late 60's, this collection of songs used classical and jazz elements (including strings and horn), all without losing the pop essence that makes such a hybrid work. This album contains some of the band's founder's finest work. The founder of the band had a short stint with the group, this being the only album containing his contributions. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the band.
