Incredible Hog - Vol. III

Good hard rock. Similar to Budgie.

Bachman Turner Overdrive - II

If you asked me out of the blue, who sings Takin' Care Of Business? I'd say the Doobie Brothers. Well, BTO sings that song. They also sing Let It Ride which is on this album also and both songs have been getting played on FM radio my intire life. BTO rocks a little bit harder than the Doobies. More like Foghat.

- I suppose it's just 70's rock, but these guys are somewhere between The Doobie Brothers and Lynyrd Skynrd.

Porn - Wine Women And Song

Has anyone ever called Porn progressive rock? Probably not due to the excessively huge riff rockin' going on here. There is a fair share of Pink Floydisms as well. If you like getting punished and beat down by drums this album is for you.

Red Dirt - Red Dirt

Bluesy psyche rock. They've got a hippy rock feel sometimes too.

Free Kitten - Nice Ass

Minimalist New York punk rock in a post Sonic Youth/Beck world. Not for everybody, but I like this a lot. Songs about the music industry and being in a band.

Hell Bullet - Kill For Beer - DEMO

Extreme thrash somewhere between early Slayer and Kreator. This is one thick wall of relentless thrash. Awesome.

-These guys are from Brazil. Hell Bullet MySpace.

Octopus - Restless Night

If the Monkees were a hard rock band. These guys have a Rock pop thing going on. Not unlike Badfinger, they're trying to pop and rock at the same time.

Hot Tuna - Hot Tuna

Acoustic guitar and bass sometimes harmonica live in a coffee house. Sounds like the Grateful Dead unplugged. I think it's a couple guys from Jefferson Airplane.

-Folky Blues.

-Jorma Kaukonen on guitar and Jack Casady on bass.

Chicken Shack - Forty Blue Fingers

Straight up blues rock like the early Bluesbreakers or Fleetwood Mac.

Too Much - Too Much

Blues Rock. Soaring guitars and some orchestration.

After All - After All

Killer 60's jazzy lounge rock. Sounds like Tom Jones singing for the Doors.
