I don't think you would have even raised the point had you not been intrigued by Nanette's looks who incidentally provided backup vocals on Honky Tonk Women.

You bet! That's probably one of the reasons Hit Radio WOWW is such a success on the airwaves.

Another lost classic ...imho...(they remind me a little of Wishbone Ash).... this guitar player, Cross, was young and crazy good but like so many bands never made it big.

In response to that band..one of my favorite obscure Brit bands though those in the know...know of it.
I have a cd version...would love to have original vinyl but I am retired these days.

I'm always on the hunt for new music and this was one I just came across during the hunt. Its long and monotonous but I still dig it. I love this thread and the music everybody posts. Keep up the contributions.

Music Note Re: Obscure Music: Rock, Jazz, etc

Just about every classic rock fan agrees that the Animals were a great 1960's band but relatively few are as familiar with their two reunion LPs, Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted from 1977 and Ark from 1983:





Here's an excellent cut from Ark:



I saw the reunited Animals in concert outdoors at the CNE fairgrounds in Toronto in 1983. They basically stuck to the material that they'd recorded to the end of 1965 which was before they started being billed as Eric Burdon and the Animals. It was good to see the five original members playing together.
