Overlooked Albums Of The 70's Pt. 5
1Atomic Rooster
Death Walks Behind You


Heavy psychedelic rock from the band that introduced the world to Carl Palmer. Unfortunately Palmer had quit the band by the time they released this, arguably thier best album, but his replacement, Paul Hammond puts in an excellent performance on drums.
2Traffic
Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory


Although not up to the standard of John Barleycorne Must Die, Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory is still a highly enjoyable album that often gets overlooked. The title track and the 12 minute, Roll Right Stones are the two tracks that stand out the most.
3Glenn Hughes
Play Me Out


Hughes' first solo album saw the former Deep Purple singer/bassist almost entirely abandon the heavy rock sound of his previous band in favour of a more soul influenced sound. Songs like I Found A Woman see Hughes embrace his more emotional side while L.A. Cut Off is pure funk.
4Leaf Hound
Growers of Mushroom


Leaf Hound are often cited as an early influence on the genre that would become known as stoner rock and listening to Growers of Mushroom it's not hard to see why.
5Uriah Heep
Very 'eavy... Very 'umble


Uriah Heep's superb debut is often overlooked in favour of later albums, Look at Yourself and Demons and Wizards but for some it still remains the band's finest achievement. Songs like Gypsy and Real Turned On are classic hard rock while the beautiful Come Away Melinda hinted at the more progreesive direction that they would explore in more depth with future releases.
