Overlooked Albums Of The 70's Pt. 2
1Colosseum II
Electric Savage


Colosseum II were a jazz fusion band that included guitarist Gary Moore along with drummer Jon Hiseman. Mostly instrumental, Electric Savage showcases Moore's incredible guitar playing as well as Hiseman's top class drumming. Both thier previous album, Stange New Flesh and particularly thier following album, War Dance are also well worth a listen for anyone into jazz fusion.
2Strawbs
Hero and Heroine


Hero and Heroine is a brilliant progressive folk rock album that is full of emotion, particularly the second half, which is considerably darker than the album's more light-hearted first half.
3Procol Harum
Grand Hotel


Arguably Procol Harum's most consistent album, Grand Hotel is well crafted and flows beautifully from start to finish and contains some of the band's finest songs, most notably the epic title track.
4Gracious
Gracious


Gracious were a symphonic prog band who's very adventurous self-titled debut is full of interesting ideas and features elements of what would become commonly known as space rock.
5Budgie
Bandolier


Along with the likes of Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, Budgie were one of the hardest rocking bands of the 70's but very rarely got the acclaim they deserved. All of their early-mid 70's albums are essential listening for any classic rock fan and Bandolier ranks among thier best.
