|Overlooked Albums Of The 70's Pt. 4|
Former Genesis guitarist, Steve Hackett has one of the largest back catologues in progressive rock and his third solo album, Spectral Mornings is
undoubtedly one of the highlights. It features some of his finest guitar playing, most notably during, the album's opening track, Every Day and
the instrumental title track, which closes the album.
Back Street Crawler
Back Street Crawler is without doubt Kossoff's finest achievement outside of Free. Opening with the heavy blues rock jam, Tuesday Morning, this
mostly instrumental album shows just how good a guitarist Kossoff was. The album features a guest appearance by Paul Rodgers on the song
|3||Skid Row (IRE)|
Skid Row was Gary Moore's first professional band and at one point also included Moore's childhood friend Phil Lynott who left the band early on
to form Thin Lizzy. The band's second album is a fairly experimental blues rock album that features elemtents of jazz fusion, a genre Moore
would go on to explore fully when joining Colosseum II.
Excellent psychedelic rock from a criminally underrated band who unfortunately only released this one album. What a great album it is though.
If I Could Do It All Over Again...
If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You (to give it it's full title) is often overlooked in favour of the band's following album, In The
Land of Grey and Pink but, despite lacking some of the laid back charm of the aforementioned follow up, is every bit as enjoyable. In fact it
benefits from the jam sections being somewhat more intense and exciting than on In The Land of Grey and Pink.
|5 has the best album title ever.|
|I need to relisten to 5 carefully. I have heard it once lonnng ago at a cd store that recd me it. All I remember is its spacey, sloppy vibe and it didnt do much for me. But now my taste in music has evolved since then, so let's give another try.
Also, I'm sooo glad to see Spectral Mornings on here. Your desc is really spot on. Keep these lists coming, JT.|
|1 is amazing, although I probably prefer Acolyte by a hair. And if 9 Feet Underground weren't so damn perfect, I'd say 5 was better than Grey and Pink. |
|@sumy, Spectral morning is more overlooked than Voyage. And if you want to take a look, ProgJect (my prog project along with Nagrarok) covered both of these.|
|@sumyunguy: I also slightly prefer Voyage but like Jethro said SP seems to be more overlooked. And yes Nine Feet
Underground is incredible.|
|Good call on 34 Hours JT.|
I had a Skid Row live tape ages ago. Need to recheck this. Also Caravan.
|^Yeah Skid Row were great, unfortunately I haven't heard any live stuff from them.|
|will check out 5 because In the Land of Grey and Pink was awesome and also title is cool|
|NOBODY GIVES A FUCK THE 70'S WERE MAD GAY|
|i know a thing or two abou SWEET LITTLE SISTAHH|
|The 70's were awesome.|
But so were Skid Row so m/
