I think its hard to convey to others what "psychedelic" really is. I think most people generally think its what you "trip out" too......but my favorite psychedelic albums often are the ones that ground you and give you that interconnectedness that blows you away while undergoing a trip.

Good Vibe Psych favorites are:

Donovan: A Gift From a Flower to a Garden (you can live inside this album)
Pearls Before Swine: These Things Too
Kaleidoscope: Faintly Blowin'
Pink Floyd: Piper at the Gates.....

Trip Out music

United States of America (Broadcast built a career off the first track of their first lp)
Mark Wirtz (as producer from 1967 to 1969) "mr. weatherman"
Beach Boys: Smile (official or unofficial bootlegs, always fascinating)

I don't necessarily think you have to get particularly obscure to be the "most psychedelic". Some of the best are actually the most popular like Love's "forever changes" ect. I also love cheesy psych like the Strawberry Alarm Clock. Hell they had some great songs actually.
