totally agree. add Uriah Heep, Humble Pie and Lucifers Friend (1st album)

for the record the Yardbirds didn't write Train Kept a Rolling it was originally done in 1949 by a piano player (can't remember name). the first rock version was done in the late 50s by the Jonny Burnette Rock n Roll Trio.

I'm not sure if the Grateful Dead is a good example, considering the huge Dead Head culture they left behind. But I don't know of a whole lot of people who know a thing about them who wouldn't call themselves a Dead Head. It seems that they're either life-long dedicated followers, or don't even know of their existence. As far as I can tell, few people fall in between. They were great though, very influential and they looked to have a great time playing. I'd say they were talented guys.

as my friend put it, people who don't like the Dead simply haven't heard enough of the Dead

One really unique, foot-tappin' group that stands out in my memory: Booker T. and the MGs. Remember "Time is Tight"? Man, these guys could GROOVE! Turn up your volume and check this out:



Another was Sly and the Family Stone. Can ANYBODY listen to "Dance to the Music" without moving just a little?

Another old favorite is Badfinger. Awesome, classic vibes on "Baby Blue."

Others are:

Donovan (Sweet Caroline, Sunshine Superman)
Herb Alpert and the Tiquana Brass (many!)
Crispian St. Peters (Pied Piper, You Were On My Mind)
Bread (Guitar Man)

Same here. I think the Dead thing is more of a cultural phenomenon more than a musical one. I've had many Dead albums going back to 1968, and tried a hundred times to "get it," to no avail. They're about as interesting as watching paint dry.

I've found that Bebop Deluxe are a very underrated band from the 70s. Check out some of their albums like Sunburst Finish and Axe Victim.
Peter Gabriel-era Genesis is quite often overlooked as well. King Crimson also don't get quite enough attention.
As for guitarists, people like Rory Gallagher and Roy Buchanan honestly don't get half as much recognition as they should. For example, many people tend to ignore the Peter Green-era of Fleetwood Mac and only look at Rumours. If any of them even bothered to do some listening they'd find that the Green line-up produced much better music. Another name I'd like to use here is Jeff Beck. I know he's one of the most renowned guitarists in the world and all, but I always see people wanking over people like Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page who don't have a clue about Jeff Beck. Compared to others, Beck does not gain nearly as much attention.

Great live band from Texas. I saw them open for Three Dog Night at Madison Square Garden in 1970.

Played DOA live in the first band I was ever in... Got great reactions for the song and the theatrics we put with it.
