60's Diamonds in the rough/Forgotten Gems
« on: December 05, 2015, 12:46:18 PM »
Gonna throw up some forgotten gems, one or few hit wonders and long lost cool shit from the sixties in this thread.

Beginning with a few great songs by a short lived stoner band that produced two albums in the late 60's, The Fraternity of man

The MC5 one of the early pioneers of METAL. Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith on them guitars. Their first album Kick Out The Jams recorded live is CLASSIC and a Must Own. Very short lived but highly influential band.

Turn it UP!

Here's a few great tunes from another harder rockin obscure 60's band. best known for their minor hit remake of the Animals "House of the rising sun" This band should have been more popular.

FRIJID PINK:
House Of The Rising Sun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t40INnb6DnY

Miss Evil (72) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZYCI5MKT0E

Boozin Blues: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t85gvX3Z1I

Bye Bye Blues: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gO7T-hK1_-w

Can still catch these guys playing around Michigan but the lone original member is drummer Richard Stevers.

Here ya go IGDV, check out the impromptu Iron Butterfly IGDV riff at the end on the first track, followed by a version of Cream's Spoonful. This is a Japanese band from 1969, they did some Hendrix covers too.

Here is another old 60's band. I'm posting up a couple full albums, worth skimming through has some good jams here and there. This is a band from Minnesota that was active from 1967-1972, and was most notable for their top twenty hit Evil Woman which was covered by Black Sabbath (B side of Wicked World)

Evil Woman is song one on the album above.

This was a band that Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath played with in 1968 before leaving to form Black Sabbath. They made one album in 1969, which he did not play on but it's pretty decent. Here are some of the best tracks on that record.
