That's a great tune, Goofle. I'm definitely gonna track down their other stuff. It's like post-bop fusion. Oh! I already do know some of Jackson's work, he's the drummer of Last Exit. That makes a lot of sense, I can hear it now.

I know a lot of people on here listen to them, but I'm gonna go on and say that Zu is incredibly underrated. One of my all-time favourite bands.

And from what looks like will be their final album Carboniferous which a lot more people are familiar with:
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

^ That one was....interesting. :P Haha.

Ok since you people are too awesome and knew The Beta Band song I had to find another one.. I wouldn't really call this a song no-one knows about but it's one of my all-time favorites and kinda underrated 90s tune. Sorry if you guys already know this one! The album was somewhat popular but not this song in particular so I thought I'd share it xD

the history of apple pie - mallory
quicksand - head to wall
seaweed - stale
chapterhouse - pearl
treepeople - feed me
isbells - as long as it takes
handsome - dim the lights
squirtgun - social
drill - what you are
catherine wheel - ferment
floor - downed star
scratch acid - albino slug
pale saints - babymaker
deep wound - psyched to die
team dresch - she's amazing
carissa's wierd - silently leaving the room

yep. I'll see what links youtube has when I get home, unless these bands are pretty well known and I had no idea.

A recent $1 find in my Used album journeys, this actually had a couple of songs I would like to get on here. The album was from 1977 from this band from I think the Chicago area who has been mentioned on a couple of Prog sites. The saddest thing was that they hardly matched up on the promise their highlights have hinted at. The album I got was on blue vinyl, although I would have liked to have seen a copy with the wrap on it for the sticker.

They may not be my ultra favorite obscurities, but it's cool to see this in my collection anyways.

You guys are out of my league. I am intimidated to post anything. I am searching and searching my library and memory for a song that deserves to be here, and I'm like has anyone heard of this...oh man everyone has heard that, don't post that!

I'll have a rare gem eventually!

Mine is less of an obscure song, than an obscure live version.
I played this for my dad, who is a massive Elvis fan and he had never heard it. It blew him away, and it continues to blow me away every time i hear it.
Let me tell you the something about the version.
It is from a concert on New Years eve 1976, 8 months before Elvis' death. He was in terrible health at this stage with colon failure and morbid obesity. This was at the end of a long set, at the end of an extremely hard tour. He is playing Piano while directing the band and delivering the most mind blowing, operatic vocals i have ever heard. The whole thing is recorded by a fan on tape recorder.
Yeah he may drop a few notes here or there or fluff up the words a little, but it just adds to the splendor and soul of the piece.
Elvis Presley : Rags to Ritches 1976

Other than that, some lesser known songs i love are 'if you see me' by the black keys, 'I feel like goin' home' by Muddy Waters, 'Santa Claus is back in town by Elvis Presley

If the link to the video doesn't work, i implore you to look up the song on youtube. search Rags to Ritches 31 december 1976. Even if you don't like Elvis, please listen to it.
