Post Getting into 60's 70's rock
Any recommendations? I just got some Black Sabbath I've never heard before and my gosh it's amazing stuff. I'd love to explore this era of music more.

Early Van Halen (the two first records is in their own league, really).

I'll thrown in some more:

- Budgie
- Blue Cheer
- Pentagram
- Wishbone Ash (i can't believe nobody mentioned this band yet, they're great)

Actually, if you liked Black Sabbath you might like these bands i mentioned as well (Wishbone Ash are way different though, but they're great nonetheless). Well, have fun :D.

Check out some of the late-'60s Detroit-based rock bands like Grand Funk Railroad and MC5. It was garage rock, "party music" that would pack stadiums. The Beatles made a timeless impact that lives on to this day, but in the early '70s, even they couldn't sell out Shea Stadium faster than Grand Funk. If you want to dive right into the glory days of Grand Funk, listen to Live: The 1971 Tour, which includes some of their more popular tracks like "Footstompin' Music," "I'm Your Captain," and a cover of the rock anthem "Gimme Shelter". A few years later, Grand Funk became more polished, added a keyboardist/organist to the lineup, and released Caught in the Act, a live album from their 1975 tour. This album featured "We're an American Band," which is massively popular to this day.

Don't forget Neil Young (!), especially with Crazy Horse if you are looking for more rocking stuff. Their first record "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" is timeless and was hugely influential to me back in high school.

Neil Young--one of my all-time favorite songs is "Cinnamon Girl". There are some rich chords played in the verses which contrast the progression nicely. I also like Robin Trower and the Bridge of Sighs record. "Day of the Eagle" is definitely the highlight, for me, off that album. Very bluesy and Hendrix-like.

You're gonna have a lot of nay-sayers, & it's best to judge for yourself, but for what it's worth...

KISS!

(& by Kiss, I mean '70's Kiss. Check out Plaster Caster, & go from there if you like it.)

Thanks guys! I got Led Zep III and IV, and BUNCH of Black Sabbath. I'm already very very familiar with Van Halen. I love it so far. I'm going to go look into more of these bands when I get home.
