You would never guess it was the Eagles would you? It sounds like nothing else they ever did unfortunately. To me it does sound like the kind of thing a Prog band may come up with although it's not hugely Proggy itself.

Who would have thought that the most American of bands wrote the theme to a most English of TV shows.

There is a banjo in it which ought to be a bit of a clue

McCartney could go a bit Proggy on his solo stuff - Venus and Mars/Rock Show, Morse Moose and the Grey Goose, Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey - but Lennon never really did although he did with The Beatles as the above example highlights.

Wasn't Sgt Pepper the first Prog album?

Morse Moose clearly wasn't proggy enough for the Prog Cup.

Not a particularly prog track, but the solo at 2:13, is pure Justin Haywood.

By Tim Renwick, I believe.

Daddy Cool were an early-'70s Australian band who were kinda like Roy Loney-era Flamin' Groovies but with a strong doo-wop element...

... except on this song, which could almost pass for Zappa. Aside from the lyrics. (Though written by DC's Ross Wilson, it had previously been recorded by Aussie proggers Spectrum, whose version sounds more like early Caravan.)
