    Great thread! *****
    SO many - Savoy Brown? Brownsville Station? Crabby Appleton? Montrose? I think Uriah Heep was a Dickens' character :confused: I remember all those Columbia House Record of the Month clubs would have scads of UH records listed - The Wizard :slayer: I vaguely recall the band at our 8th grade dance ended w/ Rock 'n Roll Queen - Ian Hunter's a very underrated musician!
    Great band - wasn't Lowell George (Little Feat) a member? I remember an early CCAHLPA record w/ the original "Willin" - fiery guitartist Bill Kirchen is still around and kicking
    SRV's brother's band! How do you spell love?
    Come Get It, Get It, Come, Come, Walk on Gilded Splinters......Rockin' the Fillmore :slayer:
    Obscure only in the sense that the heights of Olympus are often enshrouded in clouds! He belongs in the pantheon of all-time greats...

    personally -- and this is an opinion for which I am almost universally mocked -- i think jimmie vaughn is a better guitar player than stevie ray. dude defines "tasty". and as long as we're talking about Texas! Texas! Texas! [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    Nice work, guys.

    Ian Hunter...think my older brother bought me a Short Back and Sides concert jersey. :slayer:

    How about the J. Geils band?

    First I look at the purse! I recently stumbled on a Peter Wolf solo record that is really good, so good that I actually found a magnifying glass to read the credts/liner notes - whoa there, Steve Earle, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, etc., and of course, Magic Dick Not really obscure, but Glen Jones played this on his show recently

    I was a huge AC fan. Think I had all his records in the 80s. Halo of Flies. :slayer:

    this thread is also a reminder of why some obscure bands are obscure.

    pretty hard to say what "obscure" is imo, since I really got to know these groups when they were past their prime... but I like some songs by blue oyster cult, hanoi rocks, slade, misfits, mc5, diamond head...
