David Axelrod - Song of Innocence (1968)
Think orchestral rock, not some godawful Trans-Siberian Orchestra shit, but more like an instrumental version of Serge Gainsbourg's 'Histoire de Melody Nelson' with more breakbeats. The first track has been sampled by Jurassic 5, Swizz Beats fell asleep and looped a 30-second block of 'Holy Thursday' for Doctor Carter on a Lil Wayne album, and Oddisee and a few others have done the same. My favorite Axelrod album, epic through and through.
