Touch

The 1968 self-titled album by Touch – featuring Don Gallucci (ex-Kingsmen organist and future Stooges producer) – was a wild and glorious explosion of keyboard-led proto-prog that foreshadowed later styles of YesThe Nice and Chicago, reeling through jazz, blues, silent-film music, doomy organ figures and tricky time changes aplenty.

The track Down At Circe’s Place – a thumping piano riff that collapses into a well of psychedelic oddness – started off a suite that enveloped the album’s second half.

Mick JaggerGrace Slick and Jimi Hendrix all attended the recording of the album.
