The Kinks they are known for a few singles, but pretty much all of their albums are completely forgotten, which is a crying shame.

-Phil Ochs, the US protest folk singer.

Such a huge talent with an amazing voice and profound lyrics. Better than Dylan's early work in my opinion.

They're freakin awsome. And very versatile (i think). They're from the late 60s/ early 70s.

Blind Faith, Strawberyy Alarmclock, and Moby Grape

also Fleetwood Mac didn't become famous until the Stevie Nix days in the 70's, but they were 1000 times better in the sixties, and they get no credit for it. I'm not saying Nix joining was bad, she's an amazing singer, I'm saying Peter Green leaving was bad. Listen to early bluesy songs like "Oh Well"

And from the 70s, Big Star is ridiculously underrated. Alex Chilton is one of the best songwriters of all time and he barely gets any recognition for it. I urge everyone on UG to check out any of their first three albums.

Although they aren't traditional rock, I love The Residents and Chrome. Pere Ubu and Henry Cow are some other good ones.

Velvet underground, beach boys, kinks, yardbirds
Those are big and well known groups but still not as recognised as they should've been.

The Kinks, superb lyrics accompanied by either excellent riffs or transcendant melodies.

well, i can pwn you all with obscure.

ever heard of susan christie? of course not. her only album, a psychedelic funky folk album, was recorded in 69 (i think, it's around there) and then put in a vault until it was found a few years ago.

PM me and maybe i'll up it for you kids.

/pretentious

but other than that

kaleidescope, strawberry alarm clock (fun fact: they hated I&P), silver apples, agitation free, and yes...the misunderstood. john peel tried so hard to push them.
