Horribly underrated bands of the 60s and 70s

There are scores and scores, hundreds of underrated bands, bands that have slipped into near obscurity next to the giants of the 60s and 70s, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, etc etc. These unknown bands are (at least, for me) for the most part psychedelic.

This is a thread dedicated to those "lost" bands of the 60s (primarily), and the 70s.

My first dedication goes to the almost unknown band "The Misunderstood ".

Other mentions are "The Small Faces", "Love", "The Pretty Things", "The Action", "Kaleidoscope", "Tomorrow", "Strawberry Alarm Clock", and many, many others.

Oh, and "Traffic"

So, please, your respects for the lost bands of those eras can be placed here.

Those bands aren't from my generation. I'm 20 yrs old. I know those that crossed the time (Pink floyd, deep purple, led zep) and so on...I also heard about Genesis recelty, and that's pretty good.

Exactly. And in another way, the Misunderstood conjures up the image of an emo band. I recommended them to my friend, and he didn't want to listen to that "emo ****" until I told him they were psychedelic

Heavil: hell, I'm only 17. I was born in the wrong generation. I mean, at first I listened only to the "big" bands: Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc. It was only recently that I started digging deeper and deeper (I guess the "Nuggets" box sets helped me a lot)

Mmm, that he is.

Someone above said Genesis... you could perhaps call early Genesis that, but bands don't get much bigger than the Phil Collins era of Genesis.

On this board? Pretty much every good (IMO) classic rock band with the exception of The Who, Pink Floyd and maybe a few more. Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, The Velvet Underground, Van Morrison etc. all don't get enough love.

You really think Cream is a giant? I find most people who say they love classic rock have no clue who Cream are.

BTW, Bruce Springsteen. Everyone forgets him.

Traffic and Steve Winwood were amazing...

Don't hear much of Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) or the Guess Who...

Bob Seger never gets much love and how many hits does he have?

J. Geils Band were great too...

Joe Cocker has some pretty good stuff...
