Along with 'Sgt Pepper', 'Ogdens Nutgone Flake' and 'Village Green Preservation Society', this is one of the seminal albums of psychedelic England.
With three hit singles under their belt, 'Paper Sun', 'Hole In My Shoe' & 'Here we go round the Mulberry Bush', the tensions within the band over direction and control proved too much and Manson left before the LP's release in December 1967.
'Dear Mr Fantasy' is a sucsess in spite of the waring factions as the varied material makes for interesting listening.
'Heaven Is In Your Mind', the beautiful 'No Face, No Name, No Number', 'Dear Mr Fantasy' (much loved by the Grateful Dead & Stephen Stills) and 'Coloured Rain' show the promise of a great rock band while the whimsy and pychedelic trappings of 'Berkshire Poppies'(with a little help from Steve Marriott), 'House For Everyone', the caustic mesage of 'Utterly Simple', fairground grind of 'Hope I Never Find Me There' and the multi layered pop march of 'Giving To You' showed a perfect grasp of the pop ethic.
Its such a shame that they couldn't see it that way at the time.
"No Face ,No Name ,No Number" is an excellent track IMHO.
"Dear Mr Fantasy" is another gem, nothing not to like about this, get it and dive into yesterday in the room of percussion.
Actually that's from the group Kaleidoscope which is much in the same vein of Psychedelia, a chef that likes music!.

Just like it should sound, not like the awful compilations that are out there.
If you want what you remember, buy the re-issued album, not the comps.
