(YouTube)   Subby is listening to this, as it is his favorite somewhat obscure record (to most who heard "Money" and "Another Brick In the Wall Part 2"). What's your favorite obscure record by a popular (set of) musician(s)?   (youtube.com) divider line 61

? Pink Floyd is as obscure as the Rolling Stones... I know, I know -"Who?" Yes, them too.

Here's the Sonics not the Basketball team

Nothing by Floyd is obscure.

Good taste. Been meaning to break out some Floyd. Thanks for the reminder.

Okay, this is reaching back to my high school days, but Dinosaur Jr.'s (still just Dinosaur at the time) You're Living All Over Me. It came out at just the right time as I was branching out from my metalhead years.

Don't know how obscure, but this is BOC's finest album, IMO.

/Many thanks to KyDave for the TF sponsorship. Surprised as hell to see it when I stumbled in last night.

Because People in power are Stupid: Here's the Sonics not the Basketball team


That song is currently in a commercial. Not all that obscure.

Really, thanks to the internet, nothing we grew up thinking was "obscure" is going to make the cut.

Sorry, your old Temple of the Dog album is pretty well known now outside of Seattle.

Same for that Green River EP.

Aren't you witty and clever confusing the Sonics with some modern imitation.

No Utubes at work so I don't know what Floyd you're taliking about Subby.

I've been listening to the Plant P - Pink World album lately and I had forgotten how good it is. Surely this is not obscure on Fark?

I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, but here it goes....

userserve-ak.last.fm

Yes...The Scorpions.

This album is a far cry from what most people know of the Scorpions. This album resembles Can more than any hair band, which makes sense, both being from the same time (early 70's) and country (Germany). I'd encourage any Fark music critics to give it a listen and report their thoughts.

Intersting Trivia: Michael Schenker was 16 years old on this as their lead guitarist

True Fact #1: stupiddream's login is a prog-metal reference (Porcupine Tree, to be exact).

Depending on how we define "obscure," my answer would be "Selling England by the Pound."

Yes. Lonesome Crow. Fly to the Rainbow and In Trance are pretty good to. After Michael Schenker bailed to play with UFO, Ulrich Roth took over lead guitar duties....and he kicks all kinds of ass. One of my favorite guitar players.

Pink Floyd isn't obscure at all, but I do love the Final Cut. They were on the verge of breaking up at that point so it's basically a Roger Water's solo album. There are some great tracks on there.

I'm a big metal head and one of my all time favorite bands is Judas Priest. Everyone remembers Unleashed in the East, Hell Bent for Leather (Killing Machine), and British Steel. Their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th albums are amazing IMO but no one remembers those as much. Sad Wings of Destiny, Sin after Sin, and Stained Classed are all great great albums. Halford put on the best vocal performances of modern times on those 3 albums

C.W. McCall and the Citizen's Band.

Not sure if anything I listen to could be considered obscure. Maybe a version of this they released prior to 2 band name changes:

pad.indiemerch.com

Or this:

www.sacredbonesrecords.com

Or even this, simply because the lead singer is much more well known for a prior band:

Opps. The Richard Torrance is a cover of a Buckingham/Nicks song but the rest of the album is great.
 
2012-10-19 12:52:49 PM
My favorite obscure album is "Gettin' Smile" by the band that would later become Queen. Smile consisted of Brian May, Roger Taylor and Tim Staffel I also have a lot of Queen demos and one of my favorites is a 21 year old Brian May playing "Purple Haze".

This album is so hysterically good (Creation with Felix Pappalardi). If you like that late 60's early 70's blues rock sound, that sorta Cream / Mountain / Queen 1 / UFO sound, check this out. I also really like the more black-sabbathy Demon and Eleven Children, but the engrish singing on that album make it a little harder to globally recommned.

My version of that is "Ghost of a Smile" from Denmark or something. "Man from Manhattan" delights me more than it should.

Amused to Death by Roger Waters, then for a change Lauschgift by Die Fantastischen Vier. Something about German Rap Music that makes me want to march East...

Great topic, subby.

First: nothing by pink floyd.

Second: the low-hanging fruit is Radiohead. If you just listen the radio, it is Creep all the time and maybe High and Dry and that's about it.

But thehurstreview.files.wordpress.com

and Amnesiac are fantastic albums.  If you only listen to the radio, you miss the best of Radiohead.

Kitchenware and Candybars is probably the best Stone Temple Pilots song. I bet you haven't heard it.

U2 - Angel of Harlem
Oasis - Slide Away
Coldplay - Warning Sign
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Venice Queen
The Killers - Boots

everyone knows blind melon's no rain. does anyone remember Tones of Home or Galaxie?

Smashing Pumpkins - Thirty-Three or Thru the Eyes of Ruby

For Roxy Music and Brian Eno fans the 801 albums (801 Live and Listen Now) are required listening. Fabulous lineup and amazing musicianship. I can't stress enough just how amazing these albums are!

Third Uncle Eno would approve!

I'm also a long time Gabriel era Genesis fanatic. It's funny how so many Porcupine Tree fans have the same general prog background (or not...).
