Obscure Music: Rock, Jazz, etc
 
We have a 'What Are You Listening To' thread but I wanted one where we could list some of our favorite obscure or lesser known music. Post a track link or the whole lp if you wish.
I will start with one of my favorite obscure US psych rock things.

Full Moon, with guitarist Buzz Feiten (replaced Elvin Bishop in the Paul Butterfield Blues Band).

I might have mentioned these guys before....imho as good as any country blues rock back in the day...I read somewhere that The Eagles used to watch them and other bands play at The Troubador ...one wonders how much they stole from bands like Illinois Speed Press?

^I have one old LP from them called Accept...good blues rock and Christine Perfect (Mc Vie) was in them for a while.

Savoy Brown is another band from which we don't often hear these days:

One of my old favorites....Raw Sienna is my favorite...but all the early ones are great and even when they went more in to hard rock later.

Made me think of this band...loved them...a great bunch of players who never got much recognition.

You posted this other Steamhammer track back in April:



It was a real ear-opener for me.

I hoped you liked it...I love both of those tracks as well as the albums which are on you tube. I have them on cd...the lps are hard to find and expensive on old vinyl.

Another band from those times in England...similar style blues rock...
let the song develop.. it starts slow...these guys are obscure; have first one on original Vertigo vinyl..cost me some money.



I noticed I posted this track and Passing Through by Steamhammer on the prog rock thread...man it's hell to get old and forgetful.
:)
