    I was over at a friend's house today for some wings and he pulls out Donovan's "Cosmic Wheels" CD. I'd not heard that in ages and aside from a few stinkers, there is some excellent cuts. It got me to thinking what other 60-70s classics you maybe pulled out and was impressively surprised at how good it was. Let's give some vintage rock besides the usual suspects.

    Donovan- Cosmic Wheels

    Side one
    "Cosmic Wheels" – 4:02
    "Earth Sign Man" – 3:56
    "Sleep" – 3:48
    "Maria Magenta" – 2:12
    "Wild Witch Lady" – 4:27

    Side two
    "The Music Makers" – 4:28
    "The Intergalactic Laxative" – 2:49
    "I Like You" – 5:18
    "Only the Blues" – 3:13
    "Appearances" – 3:44

    Favorites are and if you choose one, Music Makers
  2. Muinarc
    Wishbone Ash - Argus

    Seems to be a little underappreciated in the annals of Prog-rock history.

    Even Donovan's "stinkers" are not too bad. [​IMG]
    The 1968 debut album from Quicksilver Messenger Service, aptly using the band's name as the title, is really nice.  A bit of a Flying Burrito Brothers meets the Grateful Dead vibe.  I really enjoy "Dino's Song", and almost always have to replay it every time I hear it for the first time in a while.
    "Pride of Man" – 4:08 (Hamilton Camp)
    "Light Your Windows" – 2:38 (Gary Duncan, David Freiberg)
    "Dino's Song" – 3:08 (Dino Valenti)
    "Gold and Silver" – 6:43 (Gary Duncan, Steve Schuster)
    "It's Been Too Long" – 3:01 (Ron Polte)
    "The Fool" – 12:07 (Gary Duncan, David Freiberg)

    Big Star - Third / Sister Lovers
    Big Star's third album. Recorded in 1974, but due to various record company issues, not released until 1978.
    Because of this, it is sometimes called, "Third," and sometimes called, "Sister Lovers," and the artwork differs.
    Quite easily one of the best albums of the '70s. Absolutely essential and fantastic. I can't recommend it enough! [​IMG]

    Oh man! You just mentioned the band that most resembles Spinal Tap! Lucifer's Friend started out as a Deep Purple imitator, but every album after that changed until they were doing really bad jazz fusion. Lucifer's Friend is the funniest band ever. I still have all their albums and pull them out occasionally for a laugh. Not an iota of sincerity in any of their music!
    Is their debut album out on CD? I might actually buy it for yucks at my next party.

    Yes, Blue Cheer was another great band that has become lost in the crowded late 60's to early 70's San Francisco blues/rock scene.  Some great music came out of the Bay Area during that time.
