Best "classic" but forgotten LP...
We are talking about great, possibly acclaimed records- but ones that are largely forgotten. "Lost Classics" if you will...

I want the record, a photo and a brief explaination!

Beau Brummels, Volume II
SOLID mid-sixties pop, but somehow not too dated. Soaring vocals. Great Flintstones drawing on the back cover...Fucking great!

Dennis Wilson, Pacific Ocean Blue
I call it "West Coast Gospel." The best 1970's "lifestyle" record ever.



Left Banke, Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina

I know I've brought this band up recently on another thread- but who cares-they are fantastic!

1. Spirit- two of them
The Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus

Spirit

I could listen to both every day. (and sometimes do.)

20. Here's another couple
"Benefit" by Jethro Tull. Both it and "Stand Up" are the best Jethro Tull ever made.

Ten Years After -- "A Space In Time". It not only has "I'd Love To Change The World", but virtually every other track on that album is killer, too.

16. "Girl In My Eye" is the best ever,
and I could play it pretty loudly, cause it didn't offend anyone.

I still turn it WAY up when it comes on.

Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 10:30 PM by indigobusiness
Tragedy has befallen another rock 'n' roll hero. On January 2, 1997, Spirit guitarist and guiding light Randy California, born Randy Craig Wolfe, drowned off the coast of Molokai, Hawaii.



He was on vacation visiting his mother Bernice Pearl, prior to a planned European tour by the rejuvenated and revamped Spirit. California encountered insurmountable while swimming with his 12-year-old son, Quinn. Fortunately, he was able to push his son towards the shore, but sadly could not save himself from the strong undertow that swept him away.


edit- insurmountable currents (?)

Getting caught in a riptide seems appropriate, somehow.

48. Spirits great
My brother was a bigger fan than I.....he had all of JoJo Gunne's albums and all of Jay's solo albums as well.

Saw an interview with Jay Ferguson and he just went on and on about Randy California, talking about his acoustic guitar on "Nature's Way" (his favorite song...and his 2nd fave? Silky Sam, lol).

2. Wilbert Harrison - "Let's Work Together"
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 09:14 PM by NightTrain
It took Harrison close to 11 years to crack the Top 40 again after his #1 smash, "Kansas City." He finally managed in early 1970 with the two-part title track from this unheralded (but excellent!) LP, which spent a measly two weeks on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good scan of the album cover, but here's the 45 RPM label of "Let's Work Together":

6. Sugarloaf: Green-Eyed Lady
Maybe not the best, but one which deserves a special cheesy 70's jam-rock mention. It's a treat when the title track pops up on classic rock radio.

28. No problem, I'll pass it along

He got to play with the band sometime last year (or maybe two
years ago now) in a quickly arranged reunion, I think somewhere
back east (New York?). Last year he suffered a heart attack and
was in the hospital for some time. Haven't talked to him since
probably the first of the year. Very nice guy.

11. Straight Up - Badfinger
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 09:26 PM by Norbert



Power Pop at it's best. This contains their last two top 20 hits in America, "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue". It also contained several top flight cuts like "Flying", "Money" and "Name of the Game". By 1974 Badfinger became yesterdays news and Straight Up went out of print.


A few years later Badfinger started to have a cult following and the value of Straight Up started to go through the roof in used LP circles. It was too pricey for me so I held off. Good thing I did. When the CD of Straight Up was released it had six bonus tracks including the USA remix of "Baby Blue".

Check this one out. It is a classic in my book and very underrated.

Pete Ham Lives!

-on edit I included the photo. Sorry, I don't know any better. I'm a lifeling rulebreaker. :bounce:

30. Montrose.... Angel City


Early/mid 70's... Pre 80's Heavy Metal.

Sammy Hagar as vocalist (before anyone knew he had an attitude or was an ass).

Song writing wasn't that great, but the guitar hooks and riffs are memorable.

"Bad Motor Scooter"
"Rock the Nation"


Angel City (or the "Angels).

Australian band, early 80's.





Described as "a thinking mans AC/DC".

Hard rock crunch with oftentimes obscure lyrics.

"Face the Day".
"Am I Ever Going to See Your Face Again?"
"No Secrets".
"Can't Shake It".

on 8-track, what else? Some Bob Dylan tape - came with the Mazda my dad bought used. Still have almost all that Vinyl. Prob 500 lps. 70's through arly 90's.

hee hee the local community station has a couple shows with oldie stuff (good stuff, not the "hits") we get real competitive trying to overcome the alzhiemers and name the artist first. Main problem is one of the shows is late tonight, the other is real early Friday morning (talking 4 to 6 am) Who's old 70's burn out brains are working at those hours?

38. Ummm...I like Love is like Oxygen
Call me a pop music freak, but I like it sometimes.
When I was in high school, I was in love with a girl named Julie (she didn't want anything to do with me). So that song used to crack me up "Julie was Johnnie's date".
Of course I got a lot of "Remember that time over at Johnny's place, well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face. Man, we just fell about the place...if that chick don't want to know...forget her".

41. "Back to Front", Gilbert O'Sullivan
Best song on this one: "In My Hole""
"Everytime a bird sings, every time a bell rings,
I go berserk.
I climb into my hole
And sit there like a mole
Playing with the dirt
Contradicting people who think of me as being
So very gentle, very clean...
...Call it what you like and by all means tell a soul,
I'm very happy, in my hole!
Running round from time to time,
Stopping only to unwind,
Everything I have is mine,
In my hole....Hollywood style..."

58. It is very COOL to find someone who knows and loves LOVE
Most people have never heard of this group. Love also was a California band, and to find someone east of New Mexico who knows them is rare. It makes me happy to find someone else who knows of Love.

Love Forever Changes is an album I spent my High School and College years playing over and over. I even ordered myself a new copy when I was in my 30s. I think it probably is time to see if I can find it on CD.

60. Born in Ohio, live in Wisconsin.
I spent one day in St. Louis, and have otherwise never been west of the Mississippi.

And I rank Forever Changes as the finest album ever made.

I have a very early LP pressing, but you can pick it up very easily at indie record stores, as it (along with the rest of Love's catalogue) was reissued about 3 years ago. You can pick it up on beautiful 180-gram virgin vinyl, or on CD.

67. Forever Changes is one of very few items that can be called timeless
Edited on Mon Jul-26-04 03:17 PM by Mike Daniels
The number of modern bands that use Love's orch pop as a template for their own sound proves that album will never be dated.

More so, even the lyrics are obtuse enough to never really be "out of date" which is a rarity for most albums created in the late 60's.

66. Great record, BUT...
...I fail to see how the album which features "Smoke on the Water" has been "forgotten." :shrug:

69. Well then, you'll have no trouble naming 3 other songs from that album.
And I'll give you "Highway Star".

70. Um... let's see....
"Lazy," "Space Truckin'" -- you spotted me "Highway Star."

I could name some others once I get home and look at the record.

72. OK, OK.
But you're much more knowledgable about these things than most.

The dilemma is, how can an album be 'classic' and 'forgotten' at the same time.

How about......

68. Art Garfunkel "Breakaway"


Can't listen to his "I Only Have Eyes for You" without getting a chill. One of the all time great romantic albums. It's a great documentation of his amazing voice as well. Guaranteed to give you 1975 flashbacks.

77. It it weren't already taken, I'd call you
the King of Pop. But now there are too many negative vibes associated with that term ;-) .

Long live classic 3 minute pop songs!
