I know they were kind of poppy but I agree with the earlier post on Hall & Oates. A good friend of mine moved out went and ended up being a neighbor of John Oates. Said he was a nice guy and their stuff was certainly higher quality than 98% of the bunk that comes from the popular music trenches (or is that diamond encrusted limo?)  now days.

How about old Motown. Platters, Drifters...that was good stuff.

Those are great old songs but I think both the Platters and Drifters recorded their hits on Atlantic. Not too sure about the Platters but both peaked before Motown hit its stride with the Temps, Tops, Mary Wells, Supremes, Marvin Gaye, etc. All GREAT stuff!

I'm going from memory but I think that "In The Still Of The Night" was a hit for the 5 Satins. Could be wrong, tho'. Has happened on occasion.  ;)

Loggins and Messina (they're about to go back on tour).

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Great stuff indeed!  The Circle Unbroken 2 album set still holds up as a great of musicians playing classic songs. I believe some of Doc's finest picking was done on that album.

If I am not mistaken, the Doc Watson tracks are on the first album. I don't think he's on the second album at all.


I'll second the  mentions of Poco and the Flying Burrito Brothers.

And Linda Ronstadt. Remember the pictures in Rolling Stone?

I think Randy Scruggs does that on the second one. My memory circuits are shorting out. I will check on the album tonight. Stay tuned.

Thanks you just reminded me that I was looking for the first Mink Deville on CD and gave up when I couldn't find it.

I'll give a rousing "amen!" to the following already mentioned:
J.Giles band, particularly "love stinks" and the fish in the video or the snare drum made of milk in "centerfold"

Cheap Trick, "I want you... to want...me," may be one of the best concert sound-bites ever.

Violent Femms and birth of the mosh pit.

Pixies rule

And I'll add the following forgotten greats...
The Cult.
I had a mix tape with Pixies on one side and The Cult on the other... all the moods of a party in one.

The Doobie Brothers.  
As good as many other southern rockers but less recalled.

The Proclaimers.  
That one single from "Benny and June" made this indie band into a one-hit-wonder.

Elvis.  
The king is dead; long live the king.

The Doors.
Often talked about, rarely listened to.

Grinderswitch !!

They recorded on the Capricorn label with The Marshall Tucker Band and The Allman Brothers Band in the early to mid 70s. Kind of a cross between Marshall Tucker and Allmans actually. Great guitar work. Dru Lombar plays some killer slide to this day.

"Macon Tracks", their second album, is still on my all time favorite list.

Anybody else know of Grinderswitch?

Yea Rob, that's right, it's Dr. Hector and the Groove Injectors. And he has recently reformed Grinderswitch.

Are you talking about Edgar Winter? I can't think of his brother"s name right now.
