    Some of these artists deserve a far better deal than the one they have -
    Uriah Heep - often referred to as the poor man's Deep Purple, but have a string of excellent albums to their name.
    Camel - prog godz imo. Can't get enough of them lately.
    Golden Earring - they have one of the best rythm sections of any band imo but are barely known outside of Netherlands.
    Wishbone Ash - twin guitar pioneers
    Shawn Phillips - with Second Contribution he created a new genre
    Grand Funk Railroad - reviled by critics, loved by fans
    Colosseum - brilliant musicianship. Colosseum Live is one THE live albums of the 70's
    Strawbs - folk rock kings
    Nick Drake - sometimes referred to as the patron saint of the depressed, he bought out three very deep albums. They grow on you with every listening.
    Little Feat - fetauring the late, great Lowell George, with their unique brand of rock

    Honestly I'd have to say that Soundgarden, CCR, Boston and Faith No More are some of the most underrated bands of all time...

    I agree with you on CCR.

    I'm a Chris Cornell fan, so Soundgarden gets plenty of love from me. Badmotorfinger & Superunknown....hell yeah!

    I distinctly remember the incredible let down the final Zeppelin album was not only for me but for practically every other hard rock fan in my neighborhood. Presence was disappointing enough but saved by Achilles Last Stand and Nobody's Fault But Mine.

    In through the out door had no such saving graces.

    I like the worst song on Coda 100 times better than anything on ITTOD.
