Seems not many people on this forum are into old rock.

Maybe they don't know what they're missing !

I've been tagged by the YouTube algorithm for the past few months, and have listened to albums that would otherwise never cross my path.

This thread is to share some of my discoveries, maybe uncover some from my own collection, and provide an opportunity for everyone to add your own suggestions of great rock & prog albums/tracks, from the ye old days between 1965 & 1975

Dude. That's some cool stuff. Some strings at around 9:00.

Great 'band jam' that can never be recreated in a MIDI/Solo composer situation. The energy of each musician comes from the other musicians around them. It's a time in modern music history that has become extinct.

Marimba (?) action from around 12:00. This Gentle Giant performance is so cool.

Beautiful recommendation from you, rgdaniel.

Nice addition to the "Vintage" topic.

How about some Sir Lord Baltimore

The vibe of this brilliant 1971 track is basically everything Soundgarden became, 15+ years later.

Back when Phil Collins kept his head down and mostly just played the drums... brilliantly...

Says one commenter: "One of the most stunning tracks ever. I first heard this through headphones late at night and it frightened me to death. Chilling, frightening, disturbing - but utterly brilliant. Probably my all time fave VDGG track. Such a shame not many people ‘get’ it. Hammill? Genius. Lyrically without equal." My thoughts exactly.

Sure, there was a lot of glam mixed in.

Genesis were a pretty 'out there' band. I've not discovered their back-catalog as much as I would have liked to. We can blame the demise of Pirate Bay for that. Good to see Peter Gabriel in that footage without a mask.

And King Crimson most certainly ticked a lot of boxes, for this decade's foray into Prog-Rock. Bravo to you once again motuscott, for some incredible input

How about this bunch of acid-heads, drawn together in the psychedelic epicentre of late-60's London ......

Can are magic. All the bands in a Germany at the time had an agreement that the would all take the same fee to do soundtrack work. Then Can undercut them all so got all the jobs hahaha.
They also went in record saying that if anyone tipped off their drum rhythms they would actually kill them dead. I guess the Stone Roses just got lucky. You’ll see what I mean if you listen to “I’m so Green” on Ege Bam Yasi. Funnily enough their was a Scottish acid guy at the start of the nineties called Ege Bam Yasi. Acid eggs. But I digress.

Also Amon Düül II are worth a mention in this category.

This thread is not to discount the LEGENDS of the 1965-1975 era at all.

Led Zeppelin pulled out some incredible music in their first few years......

I recall going through their back catalog years ago, and seem to remember that there are some very different musical iterations under the same name.

Dude :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: . Archangel Thunderbird is a great rock song. Thanks for sharing. First time I've heard it.

It inspires me to revisit this head-banging smoking gun from Thin Lizzy.

Sadly, this band were a 'two hit wonder', and this track wasn't one of them.

Ladies & Gemfish of the hard rock appreciation society, get your ears around this killer track from 1973

I was at one point the "Palmer" in a (short-lived) Emerson Lake and Palmer tribute band. Playing that fast-paced material on a 90's era TD-7 midi drumkit (not very bouncy) was brutal on my joints, which have barely recovered even now, 18 years later. Doesn't help that I'm 18 years older, mind you... can't ALWAYS blame the instrument...

You think so ?

Get your (g)ears around this brilliant album. Some nice drumming, among other great elements. Very Jazzy, in an LSD-infused jam approach.

And sure, you're going to think Deep Purple, and perhaps also Jethro Tull. Maybe even a little Uriah Heep. At a stretch, you may even hear some Steppenwolf. But it's a nice record, regardless of the influences they (obviously) wear on their sleeves.

Demis Roussos as you’ve never seen him before. A long standing favourite.
