The Pentangle - Light Flight (Theme from "Take Three Girls") (1969) (buy)

Straight from the sleeve, which includes written descriptions of each song:

This song evolved from a theme commissioned by BBC-1 TV for their first colour drama series. The time signature varies between 5/8 and 7/8 and 6/4 in the middle.

Overachievers and underachievers alike should check this title sequence.

The Rah Band - Messages From The Stars (Original 12'' Astro Mix - Atjazz Re-Edit) (2011) (buy)

AD Bourke - Aries (2011) (buy)

Slept and then sat on this one for way too long. Some choice alterations on an original everybody should get to know from a producer everybody should get to know. Second one is from the same Tokyo Dawn compilation, from another you should catch up with if you haven't yet.

Fotomaker - All There In Her Eyes (1978) (buy)

Sort of loses steam after the intro, and I kind of wish Hall & Oates had thought of it first, but if those remarks and this cover art don't dissuade you, you'll be good in the soft rock / power pop department for days.
