If you love traditional rock and the blues, the opportunities ready that you never ever became aware of the majority of the groups and the CDs in this post, which are among my favorites. I love finding ignored groups and these stick instantly too mind. My only requirements was that they needed to be groups that the majority of people in the US never ever became aware of, just one album per group, and no “Best Of” albums (with one exception). Some groups like The Blues Band &Cuby and the Blizzards are popular in their own nations, but not also known in the US. The albums are noted in alphabetical order by group, album title, CD Company and the year the album was initially tape-recorded.
Bacon Fat “Complete Blue Horizon Sessions” Sony 1971
They are an American Blues group led by Rod Piazza carrying out Chicago Blues with a fantastic unclean filthy genuine noise. This is in fact a collection album with a great deal of live things included.
Blonde on Blonde “Rebirth” Phantom Sound & Vision 1970
They have terrific tunes and extraordinary lead singing by Dave Thomas whose voice seems like a Welsh operatic Roy Orbison having fun with a terrific rock band.
Cuby& the Blizzards “Tripping Thru A Midnight Blues” (Three Originals) Universal 1968
Famous Dutch blues band including the outstanding English vocals of Cuby (Harry Muskee) and the extraordinary delicious lead guitar of EelcoGellng who was asked to change Peter Green in John Mayall’sBluesbreakers. This is the blues, child.
Betterdays “No Concessions” Aftermath Records 1994
White young boys rock the blues. The Betterdays were a 60’s English blues band that reunited in the late 90’s to tape their initial act in the studio because other than the odd single, they had little taped for posterity. This is crisp retro 60’s British Blues band R&B carried out like there is no tomorrow.
Blues Band “The Official Bootleg Album” BGO 1979
Most likely the very best known of all the bands here, including ex Manfred Mann singer Paul Jones on vocals & Harp, Tom McGuinness on guitar in addition to Dave Kelly on slide guitar and vocals, this is their launching and best album, including uptempo Chicago Blues carried out in English design with extraordinary energy.
Complex Way We Feel Wooden Hill 1971
The very first of our Zombies sounding groups, which is indicated as a terrific compliment. This group had amazing originals and an excellent keyboard player in addition to fantastic consistencies. This group taped a previous album with even much better product but regrettably the tape-recording quality was very bad due to a mess up by the place they pushed the initial record up which is why I am suggesting this album rather because of its better audio quality.
Permanently Ember “Love Cycle” Wooden Hill 1969
Think of a pauper’s Zombies doing a pauper’s “Odyessy and Oracle” and I mean that as the greatest compliment. These were initially a personal recording by these men who never ever understood how terrific they were done using non cutting-edge devices but still sounding excellent. If you’re a Zombies fan you’ll need to get this. Among the sweetest sounding albums. The unusual thing is, according to the notes, they hardly carried out any of these tracks live. Fantastic keyboards, lead vocals, singing consistencies, initial tunes, the works.
Jerusulem “Jerusalem” Universal Japan 1972
Among the heaviest biggest riff rock albums ever. Think Of Deep Purple without keyboards which mught be credited to that Ian Gillian produced this acid rock masterpience. Outright balls to the walls rock with excellent vocals, guitar, and fantastic originals, whatever. These people must have been stars.
Jodo “Guts” Lion 1971
Heavy 1971 Cream like Heavy Superb Blues Rock. They seem like Cream would seem like if they had Randy California, RIP, of Spirit on Guitar and vocals rather of Clapton.
Eliminating Floor “Killing Floor” Repertoire 1969
Envision Led Zeppelin played the blues while on amphetamines. These are the blues had fun with adrenaline the similarity which have never ever been heard before.
Excellent riffy tight UK blues rock, good initial melodic bluesy tunes with terrific lead guitar by John Mackay on guitar and vocals and some delicious harmonica by Steve Darrington. These men look the Carpenters but rock consistent. Initially taped in 1969.
Otis SpahnBigggest Thing Since Colossus (Sony) 1969
Otis Spahn is backed for the whole album by Fleetwood Mac’s traditional blues line-up of Peter Green and Danny Kirwin on guitar and John McPhie on bass, produced by popular Blues Producer, Mike Vernon. All tracks were tape-recorded in a single take without any overdubs and the playing is hot and extraordinary.
The Sorrows “Take A Heart” Castle 1968
This is extraordinary Garage Rock freakbeat design done by a famous 60’s English rock group that never ever came by the US. Every track on this album is ideal, wonderful drum beat, the bass plays the best notes, the guitar drives and the vocalist is excellent as are the tunes. “Take A heart” is considered a timeless and “She’s Got the Action” is a pounding freakbeat and “We Should Get Along Fine” is among the sweetest tunes ever.
