When I played more Classical guitar I bought Goran Sollcherr's first album even though I had never heard of him. I still love that album but he also plays some classic rock covers too. Some might like this version of "Here Comes the Sun".
I mean obscure, relative to you and where you were in life at the time.
And I DON'T mean obscure as in really odd, just-different-to-be-different music.
These are the top three that pop up in my head. I stumbled onto the Dave Edmunds and Kinks compilation in the late 70's, and Prine in the 90's.
I was in High School for the Kinks and Edmunds. While all my buddies were into these new bands Judas Priest and Van Halen, I was tapping into the 60's stuff; Stones, Dylan, Hendrix, Doors. And then I found these two.
On Prine, I was only aware of him mostly by name, but came home from work one afternoon in 1996 or so and the house was empty and I was beat so I dropped on the couch and turned on the TV and Austin City Limits was on, and here was this guy. Halfway into the first song I ended up sitting up, captured until the end. Love him, his history, and was glad I got to take the family to see him at the Boulder Theater. It was a bit more stripped down with only him, a bassist and one or two others, but we were in the front row.
I can still sing every song on all three of these albums off the top of my head!

Glad you liked! They came out of the 90s Davis/Sac (CA) scene. This song reminds me less of their other stuff and more of another group out of that scene called Thin White Rope. Popealopes is another great one from that little era.good stuff - I’ll be checking out some more of their stuff for sure.
