In that category we have:
MacDonald and Giles - Birdland - 1971
Nektar - Recycled -1976
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells - 1973
Renaissance - Scheherezade & Other Stories (sorry Gooze) - 1975
ELP - Tarkus - 1971
Iron Butterfly - In a Gadda da Vida (proto prog) - 1968
and of course Yes - Close to the Edge - 1972
I had Iron Butterfly's Butterfly Bleu from Metamorphosis in my Mooniverse playlist. Much more prog than In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
