    Obscure 60s and 70s Deep Tracks

    I play guitar a little bit, but have been an avid rocker for over 40 years.
    Always looking for that 60s 70s Obscure Deep Cut that you don't here everyday.
    If you have one you want to share post it here.
    I heard this one on SiriusXM on my Dish TV this weekend.
    Good mix of guitar, Keys, and Vocals.
    Badger- Fountain.

    Enjoy,
    Rock On!

    You beat me to it.

    A friend just gave 5 Be-Bop Albums on CD and they are awesome. Nelson reminds me a lot of Gary Moore. Or even the other way around.

    Just awesome and a player that is overlooked these days.

    If you have listened to all 5 albums, why don't you pick out one of the best one, and post a youtube, here.
    My Be-Bop exposure is very limited!

    Bill Nelson is great. One of my all time favorite musicians! He's still putting out music. I like his solo material better than Be-Bop Deluxe.

    My favorite Be-Bop album is Drastic Plastic, but most Be-Bop fans won't agree! I also liked Bill nelson's red Noise a lot.

    Bill Nelson - Welcome to Dreamsville!

    He has a HUGE volume of work.

    Wasn't Badger Jackie Lomax's band? I went to see Lomax in a club here in 1971. Had a terrific guitar player named Israel Zacuto. Prompted me to buy his "Three" album, and my band at the time did a few songs from it.

    Not necessarily obscure if you come from Australia, but certainly overlooked on this side of the ocean. Stevie Wright - Evie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=In1Ve...eature=related

    Wright was the lead singer of the Easybeats, who did the 60's classic Friday on My Mind. Written and produce by Vanda & Young, Evie is a real rarity, a three-chaptered song about a guy who falls in love, gets married, and then loses his wife in childbirth. Just one of those topics that doesn't come up all that often in moon-June-spoon lyrics. Almost a mini-rock-opera, at 11 minutes, it was rather long for commercial radio at the time, but became the longest #1 tune in history (take that, Hey Jude!). But it rocks, and it makes you cry, a claim not many songs can make.

    And I can't forget Hamilton Ontario's other claim to fame besides The Kings, punk legends Teenage Head: Teenage Head - Lets Shake - YouTube
    Though this song officially was released in 1980, they were named after a Flamin Groovies album from 1971 and were already playing this before 1980 (I know because I used to see the bass player from the band waiting at the bus stop outside my wife's/girlfriend's apartment in 1978). This version on Youtube seems to be a little laid back. It's one of those 3-chord nuggets like the Romantics "What I like about You".

    Here's Two Versions of the Same Song "Outside Woman Blues" by Cream.
    The first one was on the Disraeli Gear's Album in 1967
    I really like it best, I love the Woman Tone That Clapton gets with the SG he played in Early Cream
    The Second Version was when they did a Reunion Performance Live at the Royal Albert Hall in 2005.
    Its good also but I like the Original best.
    Which one do you prefer?

    The Albert Hall version is so different they're like two separate tunes. I like them both for separate reasons.

    Here's another Twofer of an Old Song I like.
    Eric Burdon & the Animals had it out in 1966.
    The Animals - In side Look ing Out (Live, 1966) - YouTube
    Then Grand Funk did the Version I like in 1969.
    GRAND FUNK RAILROAD - Inside Looking Out - YouTube
    Mark Farner, and the Boys really shine in this one, IMO!

    Farner went to a Solid Body After that.

    Always liked that tune. Saw GFR do it at an indoor festival in 1970, though by that point in the show Farner had abandoned the vest. The guitar is, of course, a Messenger, which Eastwood has resurrected in their seeming never-ending quest to reproduce arcane oddball guitars of the 60's.

    That's not the guitar that Farner Played.
    His Had the DeArmond Single Coils, and the Aluminum Neck.
    The Aluminum Neck was a New deal at that time.

    Oh, and don't forget the fuzz box that he had inside. He would reach over and flip the toggle switch for it right before the "over the top" & "gross" distortion for the solos....
