The talk about lost albums the last few days makes me wonder--what "lost bands" are out there we should be rediscovering? Based on the album thread, I realized I had a really clean promo copy of the first Hydra record, and I'm listening to it right now--awesome Goin' Down!

One of my favorite discoveries from a big pile of lps I picked up was Rotary Connection. They were a late 60s/early 70s psychedelic band on a Chess subsidiary label. Minnie Ripperton (the one who sang "Lovin' You" before John Stamos' oldrer brother sang it in South Park) was the lead singer. Great band, with some of the coolest Rolling Stone and Cream covers you've ever heard.

Anyone else have any favorite "lost bands?"

Does anyone remember a band from the late 60's early 70's called Black Pearl?

I had a copy of an album they did way back when (I was REAL young, I don't remember the album title or any other details) but it had covers of People Get Ready and Cold Sweat. It was pretty funky from what I remember. The album is long gone, but those two covers have stuck in my mind all these years.

I agree, not enough Uriah Heep is played, I don't even think many people remember who they were.

A few others that arn't around, at least I don't think:

Moody Blues-well I know they're touring, but not too many know them.

Humble Pie

J Geils Band

Skip, I forgot about Hawkwind! I know I had Hall Of The Mountain Grill. Gotta check the vinyl up in the attic to see if I've still got it.

I heard INXS was touring not too long ago ABBsr04. I lost interest after Michael Hutchence died.

Jay Boy Adams. Another Bill Ham production (as was Point Blank and that other lil' ole band from Texas). Remember the "Fork in the Road" LP?

Speaking of Texas, how about the Lost Gonzo Band? They stood on their own for a while post-Jerry Jeff on the late 70's, and came together for a couple of very decent reunion albums in the early-mid 90's. Nothing that I know of since then.

Skipper mentions two bands that still get regular play here.

Uriah Heep (who still tour also though mostly Europe I believe)
and mostly Colosseum.

The original Alice Cooper Band has faded away over time but created some of greatest songs. What has always amazed me is those early albums are so diverse with musical styles. No two songs ever sound the same. Pretty difficult to claim. Bass lines are awesome also. i recently played the "Muscle Of Love" album (which was supposed to be weak back then) and it is stellar. "Hard Hearted Alice", "Big Apple dreaming", "Crazy Little Child" and many more. Really enjoyed the listen.

ah yea, Spooky Tooth, "Better By You better than Me" and then Bloodrock, they were some Texas rockers. Thier mention reminds me of ole John Nitzinger and his "Texas Jelly Roll Blues" where he said "baby if you put your brain on a razor blade it'ld look like a bee-bee rollin down a 4 lane highway" I got a live Cactus show from 71 radio show that Im gonna find time to re-do one of these days with a rousing Bedroom Mazurka (however its spelled)
David, I rmemeber the day I bought that LP by Potliquor cause I also bought Loggins & Messina's LP with "Same Old Wine in a Brand New Bottle" on it, Procul Harum's "Broken Barricades" & Savoy Brown's "Street Corner Talkin"
