    I guess you're either into Hammond B3 or you're not. It just happens that I am.

    Here's a playlist, starting with some of his newer material.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A61c...1c4FgxZz8#t=39

    Here's Booker T. jamming with CCR in 1970. I haven't listened to the hour and five minute recording.
    But it must count as an obscure deep track!
    FWIW, I do vaguely recall hearing John Fogerty play Green Onions with Booker T. and the MGs on TV.

    I heard him on Terry Gross show once.
    He agreed with John Lennon that the Monkees were closer to the Marx Brothers than to the Beatles.

    Nothing at all wrong with a B3. Here is a classic Jimmy Smith from 1967, T-bone Steak




    I used some of his music back in the 60s when I was on the radio. It was perfect instrumental stuff for behind announcements and what not.

    But my favorite moment with this song was when we were touring, and in the middle of some long jam tune, I forget what, the guitarist ends his solo and sends it to Ken, our keyboard. Ken does a long solo and at some point breaks into the basic riff of this song, and it was the bulk of his solo. Little did he know I knew the piece. The guitarist was smiling at him like "say, that is tasteful". But I busted him. At the end I said over the mic, "Chris on guitar, ladies and gentlemen. And a little T-bone Steak from Ken on the Hammond." Ken had no idea any of us had even heard of Jimmy Smith.

    Well hell, Green Onions is worth a post:


    Don't call yourself an old timer and pretend you don;t know who Davy Jones was...






    I'm taking you in on a 412.

    A 412? WHAT'S A 412?

    Overacting.

    Peacepipe's 1969 instrumental "A Biker's Tune"


    which is a fitting intro for another one of their songs with trippy lyrics (and more guitar noise)

    Important transitonal video from Jeff Beck...

    Watch "UPP feat. JEFF BECK - Down In The Dirt (1974 UK TV Performance) ~ HIGH QUALITY HQ ~" on YouTube

    https://youtu.be/NzDqqxKnW3o

    This bridges the gap between The Jeff Beck Group and "Blow by Blow"...

    I liked Beck back then.
    His newer Fender sound, I don't give a hoot about!
    Here he is with the Vanilla Fudge Back line.
    IMO, Great stuff!

    King Curtis & The Kingpins

    I guess this would qualify as obscure, a compilation of live(?) tracks from King Curtis who was killed in August 1971 as he was trying to bring an air conditioner into his brownstone in NYC and a guy blocking the doorway refused to move.

    King Curtis & The Kingpins ‎– King Curtis & The Kingpins (1981)
    ATCO Records (Japan) ‎– P 8619T

    Well, this track from the mid-80's has been one of my all-time favorites...

    Watch "Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart - People Get Ready" on YouTube



    https://youtu.be/yC_j_dzkaVE

    Steve A.

    P.S. After pretty much setting the standard for blues-rock in the mid 60's and having everyone copying his riffs I think he decided to move on to something new in the mid-70's...

    I was very unimpressed with most of the hard rock bands that emerged in the 70's because it was all territory that Jeff Beck had already covered.

    check this Alabama band



    singer was 17!

    Album cover is a bit freaKY, but is awesome.

    Guitarist who wrote all the songs and sang was Myke Jackson,became a youth minister and changed his name for sadly obvious reasons. No members joined the Dickies, who sucked.

    Free-associating: That "Felt" cover reminded me of the Pousette-Dart Band's "mascot".


    I liked PSD back in the '70s-early '80s, but I don't remember why.
    Maybe because they started out as a string band.

    Here they are, being indulgent in Oakland.
    I know one thing. And that is... even though you can dance to this song,... this song... definitely... is not.......DISCO!


    The original studio version was more "commercial",
    recorded when all pop recordings were required by law to include a Fender Rhodes and phased-shifted guitars:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1FR3tuMt6w

    For a while, they sounded like a second-tier country-rock band from Massachusetts.
    Which I guess they were. They did open for Pure Prairie League.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dm6AFag8SdY
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ap5Ts6dCv1g

    This Loggins & Messina-ish tune was featured in an episode of "Lost".
    I never watched that show.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqsp438Q6xY

    For musicians with folk roots, they could go in an extremley commercial-pop direction.
    Their "hit single" For Love is so saccharine, it has been rumored to induce diabetic coma.
    For safety's sake, I won't post that one.

    Traffic and Stevie Winwood have been my favorites forever! While Spencer Davis had two AM radio hits in the mid-60's I picked up 2 or 3 of their British albums in the 99 cent cut-out bins at Whitefront... really great stuff that didn't show up in America for years and even then only some of the tracks.

    As for Traffic I did swap their very popular second album with a friend for the first Electric Flag album in 1968 but I soon replaced it. That was Winwood playing most of the guitar solos and I was very intrigued how he would play the major pentatonic (country) scales instead of the minor blues ones... not even knowing what they were but just knowing that they were different.

    After Traffic broke up in 1974 I moved on to Jim Capaldi's "Whale Meet Again" and "Short Cut Draw Blood"... Here are some YouTube videos of his songs:

    Watch "Jim Capaldi - Low Rider" on YouTube
    https://youtu.be/t0QfTjhIEeQ

    Watch "Whale Meat Again ジム•キャパルディ" on YouTube

    Love those old SDG videos. Winwood was just a kid, but boy could he sing.
    Here is a Derek and the Dominoes video that I just stumbled onto. Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash too.

    You might consider showing single songs.
    Not going to listen to a whole album of anyone, except maybe the AllBros.

    Here's a band that didn't get that much air play.
    1971, Savoy Brown, "Tell Mama"
    I had this on vinyl and played it a bunch, my daughter got my vinyl collection.
    May still have it on Disk.
    I like the Slide Guitar.

    I got a big kick out of the Savoy Brown link. I remember it playing as an 8-track cartridge in my uncle's Boss 302. One of my first sexual thoughts was watching his girlfriend bouncing up and down singing to it.

    Michele is a former DJ at a defunct free-format radio station.
    This morning, she treated the household listening audience to a set of Rock Steady/Ska/Reggae.
    According to Wikipedia, this was the first "purely Jamaican" song to hit the U.S. Billboard Top 10.

    Have to admit, "The Israelite" sure caught my ears by surprise 50 years ago. So much different from all the other schlagers offered on rock radio.

    And in the dreadful year of 2016, with pop stars dropping dead left and right, Desmond led the pack on Jan.1st.

    By my reckoning, Millie's "My Boy Lollipop" 1961 led the Jamaican Invasion. What a great horn section! Perhaps there are even earlier examples. "Day-O" sort of falls in that category, sure has that Caribbean feel, but Harry Belafonte's from the Bahamas IIRC. In the tropics all right, but not Jamaica.

    Did you get to hear '007 Shanty Town' also by Desmond?
