Default 70s forgotten AOR bands/artist?

This thread is dedicated to the bands and artists from the 70s that are rarely ever mentioned and may seem to have fallen off into obscurity.

One of my favorite bands during the 70s was Bad Company for example, you rarely ever hear any mention of them these days. They were one of the more popular blues rock bands here in the northeastern United States during the 70s era.
It would have been nice if they had made a comeback with the same success during the 80's like Areosmith did with the album's Permanent Vacation and Pump.

One of my favorite Bad Company albums, and their best attempt at a comeback was with their (1990) album Holy Water which included a different lead singer (Brian Howe). They made a few other attempts with a different singer as well, but none of those really worked out at all. They all sounded like a cheap generic version of Paul Rodgers himself.

You and your Bad Company The problem was Bad Company were really just in it for the money and the only album they ever put out that was worthy of the individual talents of the band members was their debut. The second album wasn't bad but from then on it was usually bland rock.

I think that was a Frank Zappa album. Bad Company's album was called Bad Co.

@Necromancer If you like Bad Company you should check out the movie Scotland, PA. It's a modern day MacBeth with a Bad Company soundtrack.

I'll say this: "Feel Like Making Love" is one of my go-to karaoke songs.

You can add Wishbone Ash, Free and Foghat to that list also! Here are some bands that made some excellent albums whos songs seldom get played!
