    Not mentioned the other day but I found this on a Canadian label... fine LP from late '73.

    Mantis - Fred.
    ( bit of Area Code vibe.)

    I've been into 70s Progressive Rock lately and found this youtube channel called RarestRecords.

    These are audio only, recordings of rare LPs. Way too many to mention and there are a lot of hidden gems.

    You're welcome.

    The first site does indeed have some good ones. I've heard about 30 or so.

    A few good ones I've heard include, "Tetragon", "Dark", "Christopher"

    They have a couple of albums by Tetragon, here is one. They do jam, I am surprised they didn't get more recognition.



    I started to explore the Gladiator site. First one I clicked on was a classic rock type band, "Hydra" Sounds pretty good.

    This one popped up on my feed. A nice instrumental version of Pink Floyd. Excellent Psych Rock if you can even call it Rock. Simple and easy on the ears.

    McPhee, Cruickshank and Pustelnick.. these seem to have been abandoned.. but those in the know.. know better.

    The Groundhogs - 3744 James Road.

    I listen to The Groundhogs all the time especially the albums-

    1.Blues Obituary
    2.Thank Christ For The Bomb
    3.Split
    4.Who Will Save The World The Mighty Groundhogs
    5.Hogwash

    Along with a number of live albums


    Also I saw 'The Hogs' live at the George Robey pub in Finsbury Park in north London in 1988 and also at the Dublin Castle pub in Camden Town in north London in 1991.
