There's an israelian progressive rock band that has been totally unseen in 70's (or maybe i've just not found people who know it), it's the band called Jericho.

I recommand this album a lot, the 4rth song "Justin and Nova" is a masterpiece.

I checked Silver Apples (thanks to Frownland) and it sounds really great.
That is all I got to say on the subject as I don't really know much about music from the sixties (except for ska).

Well Traffic has my vote for sure.

"Dear Mr. Fantasy," "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys," and "Paper Sun" are definitely underplayed and under appreciated songs.

Some of their songs can be found on youtube, I'm just too lazy to post them here.

I guess Howard Kaylan lives in the Seattle area (who knew?) - or so I found one afternoon when I was drunkenly surfing facebook.

However, when it comes to the Turtles, no matter how many times I hear this song, it still makes me swoon. This is proper bedroom music in the Ki/Lady house.



Plus Mark Volman's damn silly face throughout the whole video ... absolute gold.
The Battle of the Bands era line-up is possibly my favorite of The Turtles' history, with Johnny Barbata on Drums...check out this performance! The song was a sarcastic joke on their US label (White Whale) which backfired through turning into a major hit. The label was begging for another "Happy Together" and you might have thought that with the sloppy cliches and "et ceterea" thrown in the chorus the powers that be got the joke, but they only smelled a hit and got one, although most of the Battle of the Bands album was a very interesting collision of styles hinting at the Zappa world Flo and Eddie would enter in The 70's.

Fantastic band that I hardly ever hear or see mentioned anywhere other than the occasion that a punk/alternative band cites them as an influence. They never had much success, and they disbanded in 1968.

Also, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Soft Machine, The United States Of America, The Stooges, MC5, The Red Krayola, and tons of others.

Shadows of Knight were great, too.

I've also got to throw in my vote for some more of my favorite boys: Strawberry Alarm Clock, and the Seeds.
The Shadows of Knight are serious contenders for my answer...




To those thinking Standells (maybe I'm the only one)...they're close to being my answer, but parts of their Try It album really get me in a great mood!

This is closer to my answer. Too far out for the mainstream of the day - intense!



Also I might think about The Pretty Things, who had a lot of great 60's sides and were a great influence on many musicians, but sadly get looked over. Their 1967 album slightly broke the string of greatness, but they recovered. More into the Psych Beat years, but their early R&B Stones Style was cool!




On a Metro Detroit look, there's Bob Seger and the Last Heard and the Bob Seger System. To music snobs, his 70's and 80's hits damn him in their eyes, but I always loved those early Detroit Beat sounds of the 60's to 1971's great single "Looking Back".

Take your pick!
