I really wanted to see Moses Jones go someplace big.

The bass player was the son of Jamgram, here on the GB. I was hooked from the very first song on the demo CD that Sid gave me. A lot of talent in that group. I recall the fist time I heard the CD at Wanee...stopped in mid-conversation and said "Who is that?" Great songwriting, great playing.

Oh well...

It's always tough, b/c underrated by who? The public? There's a lot of bands who the public has never heard of who music people or whatever have great respect for. With music lovers, it's hard to reallly find, I think, underrated musicians, b/c even if it's not your cup of tea, you respect what they're doing.

With that ramblign caveat, I'll say Peter Green. Sure some of it was self-inflicted, but nobody but blues guitar lovers know who he is.

I'll also say Free. Known only for All Right Now, they were a great band.

Oh, and I'll add Jeff Healey. I think, for the most part, he's thought of at large as a bit of a novelty. Known for his spot in Roadhouse and Angel Eyes. But, he was a hell of a musician, a HELL of a guitar player. I think his songwriting was a bit weak, but when he was rocking rollicking blues, he was awesome.

Gov't Mule was my answer. You are right, in the 70s they would have been a monster. In my own little selfish way I am glad they aren't though. I like them just the way they are filling the mid sized venues with die hard Mule fans!!!

Having just come back from seeing Little Feat blow the roof off Variety Playhouse here in Atlanta, I have to throw in a vote for Little Feat. What a band! They can still really get it done, many great improv jams tonight.

Actually i do not understand why the vast majority of the bands listed so far would be labelled as underrated or under appreciated becacuse many of them have been popular and influential during their prime and still have plenty of fans and draw considerable crowds
till this very day. The airplay they get may focus on only a few of their hits and ignores tons of strong album tracks but that is more an issue of radio sucking big time.
Bands like Free, Bad Company, Deep Purple, Motorhead, Rush, Dire Straits and Yes all have established a big name for themselves.

Izzy's records are pure Americana rock & roll. On CD they're hard to find but I believe all are available on iTunes. He has quite a catalog.
