Hello,<br><br>           Just try almost anything by King Crimson or Robert Fripp's solo projects. Especially Exposure. It has an all star lineup of Musicians.     To Radley: Second Winter is badass... I have the 3 sided original Pressing that is Autographed and the CD as well. It is also reportedly the ONLY 3 sided album in rock/blues ever released.<br><br>                                                        kev

Image<br>I haven't listened to it in years, but I used to really side 2 of this one. The guitarist was Jan Akkermann.<br>(It was fairly obscure here, it may have been popular elsewhere.)

Hello,<br><br>             Jaypfunk is right. Queensryche is good but not obscure by any stretch. they have some shiners though. try some Ronnie Montrose from the late 80s or early 90's  I havent kept up with him much since then. He made me mad when he didn't show up for a 99 gig at the Buckhead roxy with Edgar Winter for a Roadwork reunion. Obsucure also is Allan Holdsworth's  "Velvet Darkness" Killer album and all the Personel is him.<br><br>                                                                      k

Great lp -  I think Trower was credited as ROBBY Trower-or was that another lp from the Harum?

I stand corrected - it was the " Shine On Brightly " lp that credited ROBBIE Trower -  guess he grew up after that lp  ;D

That Jay guy is a weird person, but he sure knows his music! So, after purchasing Tommy Bolin's Teaser, the next logical step would be:<br><br>Image<br><br>.... and then (before he joint James Gang, DP and went solo: Zephyr)......<br><br>Image<br><br>... and fushion fans do/should have (Gobham's Spectrum).....<br><br>Image<br><br>My all-time fav. Trower album is still this one:<br><br>Image<br><br>And by the way... Trower fans should check out Walter Trout

I listen to my Bridge Of Sighs quite a bit...liked his vocals. But you're right JP, Tommy Bolin was a great guitarist. And he had such purty hair for a guy ;D Heh, heh. I'm always glad when i see Johnny Winter anywhere....you say his name to most people and they'll look at you cock-eyed. Their loss. Did Focus (don't know which version of the band did this) do that song from around 71 or 72 called "Hocus Pocus"? Had this almost rock'n'roll yodelling on it, very odd (for most of my grade school pals) but I liked it.
