Just a little idea I had last night.  :)

I'd like to start with this one for Hello Goodbye
I know he likes older stuff and he appreciates good harmonies and he has a liking for acoustic music with strong melody.

Amazing Blondel are an English acoustic folk band, containing Eddie Baird, John Gladwin, and Terry Wincott. They released a number of LPs for Island Records in the early 1970s. They are sometimes categorised as psychedelic folk or as medieval folk rock.
The band was named after Blondel de Nesle, the musician in the court of Richard I. According to legend, when Richard was held prisoner, Blondel travelled through central Europe, singing at every castle to locate the King and assist his escape. This name for the band was suggested by a chef, Eugene McCoy, who listened to some of their songs and commented: "Oh, very Blondel!" and they began to use that name. They were then advised to add an adjective (in line, for example, with The Incredible String Band) and so they became "Amazing Blondel".

Anyway Baz I hope you like it, give it a few plays, the orchestrations at the outro are lovely....

Yes, very nice Kev!  Right up my alley, like America.  I do appreciate tight vocal harmony, acoustic guitars, and strong melody.

You know what I like.   ;)

I chose this for moog.

Spring.
A one-shot band, it recorded only one album in its career, a self-titled LP released in 1971. Spring's music is notable for the use of the mellotron with three of the its five members credited with playing that instrument on the album.

Only one album then , what a shame, I love it.

This is a track called Golden Fleece.

Why thanks Nim. That's cool. I'm always a sucker for mellotron. And I like that sustained fuzz guitar sound. Moody Blues-ish. Good guitarist too.

I haven't ever heard of these guys. Interesting. Did any of the members go on to other notable bands?
