This is Honeybus' best baroque pop track imo:
Ah I forgot about this one. Love it. Thanks for putting it back on my radar.
John Hartford - A Simple Thing as Love
Produced by Jack Clement
When I think of the term baroque chamber pop, this is always the first song that comes to mind...
No problem! One of my all time favorites
I can't understand why a band with this name wasn't popular
They were the first band signed to The Beatles' publishing company, but still never had a hit.
Not sure this qualifies... If there are any objections, put them in writing on my desk in triplicate by Monday morning.
These might not be great recommendations because they're not vintage, some are more indie folk than baroque pop, and you might already be familiar with them (They're in the same wheelhouse as the Decemberists and Sufjan Stevens), but they're great albums so I'll post them anyway.
Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
Father John Misty - Pure Comedy (he may have some more baroque albums than this)
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Paper Mache Dream Balloon
Joanna Newsom - Ys
Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising
Le Orme - Florian. Le Orme is probably best remembered as a prog band in the vein of PFM, but in 1979 they moved to more of a chamber pop direction with Florian.
Aphrodite's Child had some great baroque pop songs before they went full psych/prog on 666.
You can't get much more baroque than Miranda Sex Garden.
From Australia, The Twilights featured Glenn Shorrock, later of Little River Band, Terry Britten, pop songwriter of some renown.
I’ve been collecting Hartford albums as I come across them in the wild but never heard this one. Excellent!
It's off this one. It has California Earthquake and Natural to be Gone on it as well.
What started my interest in 60s &70s baroque pop was this compilation
A redux version is being released on January 31st by ace records.
Tea & Symphony - The English Baroque Sound 1968-1974
Top of the mountain for me...but you might’ve already guessed that.
Gene Clark - Echoes (1967)
Van Dyke Parks - The All Golden
Nick Garrie - ‘The Nightmare of J.B. Stanislas’
Cat Mother - Marie
