    How about Black Oak Arkansas?

    I do have to take issue with some of these though. Stealers Wheel, Ozark Moutain, I can certainly agree with, BUt Blue Oyster Cult, Journey, ELO, Cheap Trick, Foreigner...I don't think so. These bands are the face of the 70's. On the classic rock stations here in the Northeast they are very alive and well, not forgotten (maybe even a bit overplayed), and are always on VH1 classic if anyone gets that station.

    Most of the bands you guys have listed haven't really been forgotten, but that's just my opinion. I'm a diehard. I'll list some bands that made some great records during the 70's but were never really known enough in the first place to be forgotten all these years later.

    See how many you guys recognize:

    Sir Lord Baltimore
    Budgie
    Dust
    Captain Beyond
    Night Sun
    Cactus
    Bloodrock
    Toad
    Lucifer's Friend
    Point Blank
    Three Man Army
    Trapeze
    Randy Holden
    West, Bruce And Laing
    Hard Stuff
    Stray
    Jeronimo
    Hawkwind
    Flower Travellin' Band

    Some of those are pretty obscure, no doubt, but all of them released albums that are definitely worth checking out for anyone interested in 70's rock.

    I believe "West, Bruce And Laing", received a fair amount of press. What
    with Jack-Bruce from Cream in the band.

    That's not really the point of the thread though, is it? I don't think suggesting they've been forgotten is too far from the truth regardless of the amount of press they received 30 years ago. West and Bruce will always be better remembered for their main bands, and rightly so of course. Their short-lived collaboration however, produced some good material many people aren't even aware of, and that's too bad.
