Clear Light,1966年来自洛杉矶的迷幻乐队，出自著名的厂牌Elektra，同公司的著名艺人还有Love, Tim Buckley, 和the Doors，他们的制作人也正是doors的制作人Paul A. Rothchild，乐队包括主唱Cliff De Young，鼓手Dallas Taylor（之前和John Sebastian合作，之后是Crosby, Stills and Nash），吉他手Robbie "the Werewolf" Robison和Bob Seal
Formed in 1966 as the Brain Train and managed by Sunset Strip hipster Bud Mathis, Clear Light were signed up by Elektra, and Doors' producer Paul A. Rothchild took over management of the band.
The group included future actor Cliff De Young on vocals and drummer Dallas Taylor (who had played previously with John Sebastian and later with Crosby, Stills and Nash). Rounding out the lineup were Robbie "the Werewolf" Robison, guitar (later replaced by Ralph Schuckett, organ); Bob Seal, guitar and vocals; occasional Doors sideman Doug Lubahn, bass; and Michael Ney, on, most unusually, another set of drums.
What has been considered the band's finest hour came when drunken customers in a Park Avenue club heckled them so brutally that Ralph Schuckett, the usually gentle organist, hurled a few choice words back at them. They then walked off the stage, retired to the Albert Hotel, and woke up in the morning to find that they had become underground heroes.
The big hit off their only album, Clear Light, was "Mr. Blue," a psychedelic folk song written by Tom Paxton. Lasting over six minutes, the rather sinister, psychedelic song is considered a classic of the genre. Its lyrics, which alternate between spoken word and song, include verses opening with such lines as, "Good morning, Mister Blue, we've got our eye on you," "Step softly, Mister Blue, we know what's best for you," and "Be careful, Mister Blue, this phase you're going through ...."
The album also included some of guitarist Bob Seal's best psychedelic folk-rock songs, namely "With All in Mind" and "They Who Have Nothing." It had some success in England, but less in the U.S. The group disbanded in 1968.
Clear Light was featured in the 1967 motion picture The President's Analyst.
