Fakta Jazz-trained Margo Guryan released Take a Picture in 1968 after about a decade of songwriting - with credits including Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry and Harry Belafonte, among others. The Pet Sounds acolyte's lone full-length is an early prototype for countless lounge and dream-pop excursions, and bridges the gap between Burt Bacharach and Belle & Sebastian. The hazy production is loaded with horns, strings and sumptuous harmonies; standout "Sunday Morning" became a Bobbie Gentry and Glen Campbell duet. The album received critical praise, but Guryan had no aspirations to tour. "I didn't want to be a performer," she said in a 2011 interview. "I wanted to be a songwriter. You needed a manager, an agent, a lawyer, an accountant . people telling you what to wear, what to say, who to be. The whole thing just didn't appeal to me."
