Solution of the Day : 31 December
Longest track from an album (contemporaneous with Exotic Birds and

1967), and produced by a

third, the fourth on the fourth, the fifth on the fifth, the sixth on
the sixth, and (predictably enough) the seventh on the seventh; your
simple task is to name the eighth song in this sequence.
10 x g
