You don't hear them mentioned too much along with the likes of the Stones, Who, and those bands, but they have been around as long as anybody. Some good tunes in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Definitely an early prog band , I believe one of the first to make major usage of the mellotron.

My favorite from their 80's resurgence was this one
The Other Side Of Life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPnAbx6sgOY

The box set has alot of great stuff as well as all the hits.

I absolutely love this haunting somber little song right here, an absolute gem.
Probably my favorite song they ever did.
