Any of you have some overlooked, or hidden gems on albums you want people to know? List'em here.

I was listening to Cream's Wheels of Fire, & I really dig the way Ginger pounds away, & DRIVES Deserted Cities of the Heart.

I think one of the most overlooked and underappreciated acts of all time is/was Sea Level. Not really rock, not really jazz, not really fusion - just really, really good stuff.

Hey, great idea for a thread:

I don't have the album in front of me, but there is a song by the Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies titled, "Grace, write me a letter" that is absolutely beautiful ... musically and lyrically .....

I'm sure I will be adding many more to this thread and seeking out others that are posted .... Checking out Ginger on Deserted Cities right now !!

Just this weekend I was listening to a couple of old albums (now CDs) that amazed me at how fresh they were. Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee.... "Sail Away" and really most of the songs on there. Also, John Mayall's Jazz/Blues Fusion. I love Freddie Robinson's understated guitar. Good tunes too.

Golden Earring is a group that I always root for and still support by buying all their stuff.

There was so much more to them than "Radar Love"

George Kooymans is a very underated Guitarist and Barry Hay has a very good voice.

They have been together for 38 years...3 of 5 originals remain in the band.

They were influenced a lot by the Byrds...good recording of " 8 miles High"

These 3 CD's are hidden gems to me:

Mad Love (out of print)
Switch
To the Hilt


* 1965 Just Earring - Polydor
1967 Winter Harvest - Capitol
1968 Miracle Mirror - Capitol
1969 On the Double - Polydor
1970 Eight Miles High - Polydor
1970 Golden Earring - Polydor
1970 Sing My Song - Karussell
1971 Seven Tears - Polydor
1972 Together - Polydor
* 1973 Moontan - MCA
* 1975 Switch - Red Bullet
* 1975 To the Hilt - Polydor
* 1976 Contraband - Polydor
* 1977 Golden Earring Live - MCA
* 1977 Mad Love - MCA
* 1978 Grab It for a Second - MCA
* 1979 No Promises - Polydor
* 1980 Prisoner of the Night - Polydor
* 1981 2nd Live Polydor
* 1982 Cut- Red Bullet
* 1984 Something Heavy Going Down [live] - Capitol
* 1984 N.E.W.S.- Twenty One
* 1986 The Hole - Twenty One
* 1989 Keeper of the Flame - Baktabak
* 1991 Bloody Buccaneers - Capitol
* 1994 Face It - Columbia
* 1995 Love Sweat - Columbia
* 1997 Naked II [live] - CNR
* 1999 Paradise in Distress - Import
* 2001 Last Blast of the Century -[live]

* Releases that I have purchased

They have just released a new about 3 months ago...getting it soon.

Anyone remember the Climax Blues Band with Peter Haycock, especially before they became "stars"....there is a track on "Sense of Direction"...IIRC "losing my humbles" killer stuff on slide, doubled.....sigh, he is not in the band anymore, the only original is the singer

Hate to threadjack but...

Rusty (or anyone), been meaning to get some Sea Level forever...of the 5 albums out: Best of, On the Edge, Long walk...,Cats on Coast, and Sea Level which would you say are must haves? I am sure all of them but need to start slow (amazon got me for the Beacon DVD, then kindly suggested VOL I,II,III of the ABB Ultimate Guitar Guide...damn how'd they know???)....please pardon the intrusion.

Hey Dude !

Noooooo..it's even worse than that...I have paid up to $30.00 for some of their stuff that is not available here. The new one that just came out is $25.00 used.

I go to either one extreme or the other

Sorry to answer for Rusty, but I like the first two Sea Levels the best, Sea Level and Cats On The Coast. They are all good though...

I have 4 Sea Level shows on the hard drive if anyone wants (Dec. 76, 3.22.77, 12.6.78, and 1.19.80)

Are Booker T. and the MG's overlooked? I love just about anything they ever put out. Steve Cropper is stunning on guitar and was only a teenager when they were recording at Staxx.

Thanks Goliath.

I'll second the Rusted Root nod. Strange music at times, but powerful to.

Wow you guys are into some strange s-h-i-t...whoever would of thought a bunch of peach heads would be into some of the stuff you guys are...oh well.

...anyway heres a few "classics" some folks may have forgot about that I like...if you care.

Steely Dan - Countdown To Ecstasy and Royal Scam
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited, Infidels
Elton John - Madman Across The Water
Hot Tuna - Burgers
Neil Young - Tonights The Night, Time Fades Away
Blind Melon - Soup
Tom Waits - Mule Variations
Widespread Panic - Space Wrangler
Gregg Allman - Laid Back
