    Might want to also check out Uriah Heep.  Sometimes can be prog other times similar to Purple.  Some stuff like July Morning and Easy Livin are quite heavy.

    Check out a band called Crack The Sky - Animal Notes and Safety in Numbers as well as the self titled debut are good.  Sort of a prog hard rock band.  I really enjoy them and have quite a few of their albums, but AN and SiN are the ones that continually find their way back to the turntable.

    Streetheart was a pretty good Canadian band as well.  First album released late 70's.  My fave Drugstore Dancer came out in 81. 

    Never mistake a clear view for a short distance.

    :up: Damn right!!

    I would add:

    Johnny Winter - Captured Live - Johnny is SMOKIN!!
    Triumph - S/T, Rock N' Roll Machine, and Progressions of Power - Emmett kicked ass on these early albums
    Blackfoot - Strikes - Train, Train and Highway Song are on this... nuff said
    Ted Nugent - S/T - Among Ted's best work
    Moxy - Ridin' High - Kind of if you took early Aerosmith and put Brian Johnson on vocals
    Sweet - Desolation Boulevard - Tons of great guitar from a band trying to move out of the pop band image.
    Bachman Turner Overdrive - Four Wheel Drive - This and Not Fragile have some of the heaviest riffs ever.
    Mother's Finest - S/T and Another Mother Further - Funk Rock with lots of guitar
    Al Di Meola - Elegant Gypsy - Jazz Rock Fusion guitar at it's best. Al is just ridiculously good.
    Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, and Paco DeLuca - Friday Night in San Francisco - You will sell your guitars after listening to this.
    Aldo Nova - S/T - Poppy, with lots of guitar
    Early Heart - Their early stuff is easily their best
    Early Pat Benatar - Neil Giraldo burns it up on the early stuff
    Nazareth - Snaz - Nazareth sounded much fuller and tighter live. Manny and Billy Rankin are GREAT!
    Pat Travers - Go For What You Know - The album that made Pat famous.
    Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs - If you like Trower, this is in his top two or three.

    Oh, and forgot one from the early 70s, Focus - Hocus Pocus - Jan Akkerman was never better.
    I think sometimes if you try to play too technically, you lose something in the music - like you're playing for another guitar player. I like to play for people. The more sophisticated and mature guitarists become, the more they go with the feel.

    That's cool Isaac, but he wants hard rock from the early 70s.

    Oops. Totally missed that 70s part.  My bad.

    Every Dino needs to own a copy of Deep Purple Machine Head and Made in Japan .

    I'm also a big fan of Robin Trower . Bridge of Sighs is a must have .

    Get your hands on some Pat Travers too .

    Lets not forget Frank Marino ....The Live album rules .

    Seconded. Rush's 70s output is some of the greatest rock ever recorded IMO.
