In October 1967, they released their first album: a concept album produced by Chris Blackwell titled The Story of Simon Simopath. The album was one of the first narrative concept albums ever released, predating story-driven concept albums such as The Pretty Things' . Sorrow (December 1968), The Who's Tommy (April 1969) and The Kinks' Arthur (September 1969. and the Moody Blues album Days of Future Passed (November 1967) by a month.

Only for completionists (0%). This very charming album is one of the first concept/story albums around, predating the greats like THE WHO's "Tommy" by two years. The album is pretty tight regarding the story and not some loosely concept flowing about.
