There was an obscure, eclectic band in the 1970s that combined elements of rock, jazz, new age, avant garde, world and ambient music. I have several of their albums, and I go on listening jags periodically. At one point, I located an out-of-print release of one and ordered it from overseas.

One of the most recent obscure albums I bought was Koo Koo by Deborah Harry. It's more synth pop than the New Wave and Disco Blondie is known for. The production by Chic members Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards on that record is SUPERB!

'Saturday night to Sunday morning ' by theRiver Detectives from the 80's.
Had it on a cassette originally and about five years ago managed to get hold of it on vinyl, always been a favourite.

The Sweet Apple albums... I guess you would call them obscure as in most people don't know them.

Sing The Night of Sorrow, The Golden Age of Glitter, Love and Desperation.

College radio in the 90s in Atlanta exposed me to some gems.
The Embarrassment, as good as Devo but from Kansas.

The Raymond Brake, only one album release but one of my all-time favorites. My wife heard this and said these guys know music theory.

I have to go back to the 70s to when I saw The Fans play at 688. Guitarist Kevin Dunn produced the first B52s single version of Rock Lobster, which I heard initially on the PA at 688 during a break in a show by The Fans and The Brains.

Obscure then and now but always with me.

I'm not going to lie to you all, I bought this for the cover.
It has become one of my favorite Rockabilly LP's
