Everybody has their favorite bands, and usually, a person would own a good bit of material from their favorite bands. But how about those bands that you've always wanted to get to know a little better. Use this thread to list at least 5 bands whose material you'd like to own more of. I'll list 5 here:
1. Rush - I haven't seen all of the new documentary, but what I did see has peaked my interest.
2. E.L.O. - Everytime I hear a song by ELO I wonder why I don't own more of their material
3. The Allman Brothers Band - I do have a greatest hits box set, but I'd really like to pick up some studio albums.
4. Tom Petty - Again, I only have a greatest hits disc and now Mojo. I've got Damn The Torpedos on my Amazon wish list but I also want Hard Promises.
5. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - I have a greatest hits disc and Deja Vu, but as much as I love the vocal melodies from this band, I'm not sure why I don't own more.
Man, was I wrong back then?!
None of these bands have my interest what so ever at this moment.
Now, probably to RJhog's big surprise, I would like to know, if there are some great Prog-albums out there, that I'm not aware of. I am also a bit curious about King Crimson.
I'd like to "take up" this discussion once more, because after I've recently bought my way in to Spotify, I've heard many great albums, that I knew of, but hadn't really heard before, becuase I've never been a millionare.
Not at all to my surprise, I still think, that the greatest music was made around 1970-1975, maybe 1976 (Punk really did a lot of damage), and that certainly also is the rule rearding Alice Cooper. I guess, I've been listening to the wrong (80's) albums all this time, but now I've heard all of albums up until "..Goes To Hell", and I REALLY like, what I'm hearing. PROG is a four-letter word right now!
I've also listened to all of the Jethro Tull-albums from that periode, that I hadn't heard before, because of some lousy reviews, that I believed in all this time, but there are really some great albums, that I haven't heard before, escpecially "Benefit".
I've also enjoyed all of Elton John's output from this periode. also great stuff! After 1976, he wasn't/isn't that good anymore.
I have to listen to some old Bad Company and UFO-albums some of these days, to see, what I have missed out on.
This is a great way to discover al the great music, that you've missed earlier on!
Grand Funk Railroad. Check! I will listen to some of their early stuff.
I thought their red album was good. I think it's titled Grand Funk.
Niels, I definitely recommend you exploring more of the Journey & Styx catalogs. They are rock staples for me & essential to my musical roots & foundation. Both bands are in my personal Hall Of Fame & I am familiar with their entire catalogs. Listed below is the heart of both catalogs that I deem absolute essentials.
The Grand Illusion
Pieces Of Eight
Mike, I'm sure it's an oversight, but you left off Cyclorama for Styx, which I know to be Scott's most favorite Styx album.
No kidding. How can anyone not mention that album if they are a true blue Styx fan?
