Post A Lesser-known Fave From Each Decade

And by lesser-known, up to you really. Totally obscure, or just to the average (i.e. non Sputnik type) music listener. I don't have many albums that are really that unknown.
1Captain Beefheart
Safe As Milk


1967. Psychedelic blues rock with some weird bits thrown in. Probably his only 'normal' album before the really off the wall stuff.
2Captain Beyond
Captain Beyond


1972. Slightly proggy 70's style hard rock, with great drumming and vocals. Featuring ex-Deep Purple and Iron Butterfly members.
3Voivod
Nothingface


1989. Listened to this after reading a rec off here, not my usual cup of tea but this was great after a few listens. Something a bit different to all the 80s thrash metal.
4Fu Manchu
In Search Of...


1996. Good time heavy rock with fuzzy riffs, cowbells and laid back vocals. Asphalt Rising and Cyclone Launch the standout tracks, but there's not a bad track on the album.
5Earthless
Rhythms From a Cosmic Sky


2007. Two 20 minute psychedelic guitar solos and a short track. That's it. That's all you need.
6Albatross Overdrive
Albatross Overdrive


2010. (mid 90's) Corrosion of Conformity-type stoner rock, with big riffs and big vocals. Pretty cheesy and formulaic, but that suits me.
