Looking to broaden my listening material. You guys are as diverse as I am so I am looking for some suggestions for somethings I may have missed. Let's start with the early 70's. What have you got?

    Montrose and Free for starters.
    Death Or Glory - Who Dares Wins!

    Early seventies -  let's say 1970-1973.  Here's a selection of albums including obvious and less obvious ones (for a given band, I only mentioned one album, but of course some of these bands would have deserved much more).

    Alice Cooper - Killer
    Black Sabbath - Paranoid
    Blue Oyster Cult - Tyranny and Mutation
    Captain Beyond - Captain Beyond
    Deep Purple - Machine Head
    Free - Fire and Water
    Genesis - Foxtrot
    Hawkwind - Doremi Fasol Latido
    Jethro Tull  - Aqualung
    Led Zeppelin - IV
    Montrose - Montrose
    Nazareth - Loud'n'Proud
    Rory Gallagher - Live in Europe
    Spirit - Twelve Dreams of Dr Sardonicus
    Uriah Heep - Demons and Wizards
    Wishbone Ash - Argus
    ZZ Top - Tres Hombres

    Besides the ones already mentioned for the years 70-73, I would include:

    The Who - Who's Next and Live At Leeds
    Bachman Turner Overdrive - Not Fragile
    Mountain - Mountain Climbing, Flowers of Evil, and Nantucket Sleighride
    Robin Trower - Twice Removed from Yesterday
    Deep Purple - In Rock and Made In Japan
    Budgie - Probably Squawk, but otcconan would know best.
    Aerosmith - Aerosmith
    Slade - Alive
    Edgar Winter - They Only Come Out At Night

    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.

    Good call on the Humble Pie~!  :up:  I love them. They are a forerunner to The Black Crowes.

    Mountain and also West, Bruce and Lang.  However, it all starts and ends for me with the first Montrose album.

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

    So far Captain Beyond ans Jeruselem are new to me! Great suggestions all around. Looks like a a few I knew but had forgotten. Montrose kills. ZZ Top of course. Wishbone was very cool. No one suggested Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Okay lets shift to mid to late seventies!

    Trapeze 'Medussa' is one that was 'old' when we were kids but it sure sounded cool

    Iggy and the Stooges 'Raw Power' is a brutal metallic sleaze-fest

    Rory Gallagher 'Stage Struck' just overflows with burning hot guitar

    Pink Faries 'Kings of Oblivion' was another 70's favorite that i didn't discover until the 80's

    as was Dust who made two albums that are obscure but cool

    Not as obscure is Jeff Beck group 'Truth' and 'Beck-Ola' if you haven't heard these, you're in for a treat
