Top 10 Forgotten Classic Rock Albums

Recommended Posts

Great list. I was searching for a band called The Knack when I hit this thread. Anyone heard of The Knack? Trick is, it's not the My Sharona knack, this group is from about 67.

Have to agree with some of the other groups mentioned, Electric Flag (just listened to them last week), Grassroots, Mayall.

Let me add a couple more,

Child is the Father to the Man--Blood Sweat and Tears.

Then Played On--Fleetwood Mac

Left Banke--The Left Banke

The first two groups most have heard of, but both of these albums come from a period before they really became popular.

This is the BST album with Al Kooper. And Then Played On is a blues album featuring Peter Green, The Left Banke album is baroque pop. Won't appeal to everyone but it is work a listen.

Greybeard beat me to it. Child is Father to the Man was a really great album. It's a whole lot edgier than the David Clayton Thomas incarnation of BS&T although I like them too. Bazooka started me thinking about that album with his mention of Electric Flag another old favorite.
