One thing I would say about The Transformed Man is that I wish the opposing pairs of songs had been presented as separate tracks rather than welded together. I think the LP producer was trying too hard to force us into a pre-set, engineered listening experience. You can cut it up yourself, but you shouldn't have to.
Well, to be fair, it was that heady age when the concept album was the latest thing and Sergeant Pepper had just wowed everybody with the tracks all running together. They were trying to make the album an artistic unit because that was the hip thing to do.

It certainly worked for Bill ("the thrill I got from hearing this album all the way through was deeper and more satisfying than anything I had ever experienced") Shatner. (I'm sure his wife was happy to read that remark.)
