    Aunti coagulant, if you haven't checked them out yet, Beefheart has some albums that are less intimidating, I really like 1971's The Spotlight Kid and love 1972's Clear Spot. It's my favorite Beefheart album. There's some great tracks on there, Circumstances, Nowadays a Woman's Gotta Hit a Man, Big Eyed Beans From Venus and the title track are really rockin', Too Much Time sounds like Stax records soul music, and Her Eyes Are a Blue Million Mile and My Head is My Only House are beautiful ballads. Her Eyes... was used in the Big Labowski soundtrack.

    The albums Safe as Milk and Ice Cream for Crow are pretty solid bets too. I have some favorite cuts on Trout Mask like Moonlight on Vermont and Ella Garu but I find the album too dense to listen to in one sitting.


    Hey thanks! I will definitely check those out! I'm especially curious about Too Much Time as I love the sound of sweet soul music.

    Listen to Tour De Force's "World On Fire" album. Very 80's sounding rock music, sadly released in the mid 90's when that kinda music wasn't popular. Lead singer's name is Chali Cayte. "Sweet Adeline" is a wonderful song as are quite a few songs off the album!

    You can listen to samples [url=http://www.amazon.com/Medusa-Trapeze/dp/B000001F72/ref=ntt_mus_ep_dpt/103-6568121-4849400] HERE[/url]

    Just a quick listen through the particular album, Medusa, I linked to they sound like a cross between Procol Harem and old Grand Funk. I said OLD Grand Funk.

    Thanks for that AC:

    Here's what I think track by track:

    Black Cloud; Sounds like the Faces

    Jury; Sounds like a lot of the Stones' and Frijid Pink's acoustic ballads

    Your Love is Alright; Sounds like Cactus

    Touch My Life; Sounds like the Stones, Cactus and the Faces having a jam session

    Seafull; Sounds like a better version of Led Zep's Since I've Been Loving You

    Makes Me Wanna Cry; Sounds like Cactus and Captain Beyond

    Medusa; Sounds like early 70's dark folk rock

    I may get this if I see it cheap on vinyl or buy the mp3s from Amazon's site sometime.

    That's a great suggestion but isn't that a pretty well known song? Maybe the youngsters won't know it.

    How about some Nick Drake or Van Dyke Parks? People might be somewhat familiar with Nick Drake from that VW commercial some years back but all of his songs are just lovely.

    A short while back at a used record store I bought the 1970 Elektra records sampler double album Garden of Delights. There's a Paul Butterfield Blues Band track on there that blew me away called Living in my Own Dream. God damn is it a great track.

    Good call, their stuff is killer.

    That reminds me Elektra/ Rhino's Nuggets series of comp albums and boxed sets is worth checking out for obscure music. Many of the bands anthologized in the series either had members who became well known later on or changed their name and style and had major success. Lots of good rock, pop, psych and garage abound.

    I was going to suggest the Sonics! They are awesome. Not sure if this is your thing or not Kriller, but try and track down some stuff from the Rationals.
