I have discovered a number of songs/artists via this forum from people posting in the music threads. There are artists such as Zep, The Beatles, and more recently Metallica where they were so overplayed that even their fans often find themselves turning the channel looking for something fresh. So, ITT we will post deep cuts from albums that we consider to be among an artists great works, yet have probably gone unheard by anyone other then their hard core fans.
This idea really springs from Eomrat's posting of Shinkicker by Rory Gallagher some time back. I am embarrassed as a fan of the blues, and bluesy rock to admit I had never heard of him. I can assure you my iPod is filled with some great new (to me) music to the credit of that one post! Thanks Eom!!
If you have an interesting story to go with it, all the better!
I obviously had heard of Deep Purple years before, but wasn't impressed having really heard only classics such as Smoke on the Water, Speed King, Woman from Tokyo, and occasionally, Burn played on the radio. In fact when I later discovered them I was completely blown away to find the version of Hush that I knew was Purple! It wasn't until the release of the Slide It In album by Whitesnake that I started looking into Purple after hearing Coverdale had been in the band. Its kind of crazy with a band like Purple who's musical family three has grown so broad how many different styles of music its members have generated over the years, and how many other successful bands have come from them, this tree continues to sprout with Black Country Communion recently added, which further brings another previously unknown by the name of Joe Bonamassa to my iPod!!
Interesting? Probably only to me.
What do got?
