    Hi,

    Haven't been around in quite some time due to emigration, health issues etc but hoping to get back into it now.

    Hoping some of you might help me put a playlist together....

    I go to my buddy's most Friday nights to shoot pool, drink beer & listen to good music.

    One of my fav playlists has a lot of Ten Years After, Spooky Tooth, Be Bop Deluxe, Robin Trower. - It's great to hear those less popular but no less talented bands :)

    However, I'm struggling to come up with a new playlist of similar music. Bands like the above - bluesy rock with great guitar, but not TOO traditional rock and roll Bill Haley sound.

    Any ideas gratefully considered!

    Really? No one can suggest a single semi-forgotten classic for my playlist?

    I'd bet loads of you have listened to such a song in the last couple of days?

    If I've listed this in the wrong forum, please do point me in the right direction!

    Pick through one of the many online best xxx songs of the 60's.
    Just google best songs of the 60's.
    Some you'll agree with. Some will be crap.

    Thanks to everyone else too. I know there's plenty of list sites online, but was curious to see what you guys would recommend.
