I'm going to be specific, because I've listened and know many. I love singers who sing in a high-register (Jane Relf), songs in a slower-tempo. Always liked prog w/ a touch of Middle-Eastern scales... Let me just name my favorites, lol.

-Curved Air
-Illusion
-Carol of Harvest
-Mellow Candle
-Earth & Fire
-Savage Rose
-Fairport Convention
-Sandrose
-Stairway
-Renaissance
-Fantasy (US band from Florida)
-Spirogyra
-Mother Superior
-Babe Ruth
-Lily & Maria
-Comus
-Fotheringay
-The Strawbs
-Trees
-Pentangle
-Steeleye Span
-Empire
-Bran
-Apoteosi

I also know Frumpy, Cano, Catherine Laara, Marillion, Mr Fox, Bread, Love & Dreams, Midwinter, These Trails, Hoelderlin Traum, Can Am Des Puig, turid, Lai and Mike Waterson, Sally Oldfield, Haizea, Elly & Rikkert, Lily & Maria, Banda do casaca, Carmen, Las Grecac is probably more prog-pop, which is also fine.... I don't most would consider Yoshiko Sai, but I'd check out her 70s albums, including the live one on YouTube.

Fronted by Jill Saward who went on to front Brandy for a year, before becoming a session singer, and then on to Citizen Gang before joining Shakatak from 1980 onwards where she has enjoyed 35 years plus of continuous success.
They were very prog-jazz-funk-psych and produced just the one album but it's an absolute classic and very hard to find on vinyl unless - like me - you opt for a modern blood red re-press.
i had an original vinyl from back in 1974 but got rid when I picked it up on CD.
Idiot!

Saward was a truly sexy rock-chick and they got some great press.
Saw the band in 1974 - this is what I've said about them.

Thanks and what a reminder! I was at the 26 minute mark.. Need to re-wind it and re-listen. Cheers!
