I Looked Up (Elektra EKS 2469 002, . LP: EKS-74061) is the sixth album by the Incredible String Band. Recorded at a time when the band was busy rehearsing for their ambitious upcoming stage show, U, the album has been described by band member Robin Williamson as a "quickie" album. Recording of the album came just 5 months after Changing Horses. Like its predecessor, the album included six tracks with two compositions exceeding 10 minutes.

The Incredible String Band is the debut album by the band of the same name, released in Britain in 1966 by record label Elektra. It is the only one of the band's albums to feature the original trio line-up with Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron. The trio had been signed to Elektra Records by Joe Boyd, who had seen them play in Glasgow. They recorded the album at the Sound Techniques studio in Chelsea, London in one afternoon in May 1966, with Boyd as producer

The Incredible String Band played a variety of folk music, from British and Celtic-inspired odes to Appalachian mountain jams all with the enthusiasm of young, excited true believers. The inspired ambitions of the group’s two songwriters, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron, ensured that there would be few dry spots and 1970’s I Looked Up is another grand pleasure where the band’s dexterous instrumental approach keeps things intriguing from start to finish. Mike Heron’s Black Jack Davey begins the set at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

I Looked Up finds the band occasionally edging closer to more conventional rock; Mike Heron's "The Letter" almost approaches country-rock, with drums by Dave Mattacks of Fairport Convention.

The Incredible String Band spent much of 1969 touring in the UK and the United States. Now a four-piece band, with McKechnie and Simpson officially in the fold, the ISB improved in their communication with their audience, an aspect they attempted to improve upon after their conversion to Scientology. The band undertook extensive studies of spirituality and philosophy as a way of self-analyzing themselves, and their religious conversion was a part of the process.
