Usually I don't Care much for DVD's but as it looks more and Møre unlikely I'll ever Catch him live I'll be gettin this one! Big fan since I heard Strange Universe (the song) in 1975. Looking back, that moment seem Møre surprising every time I think of it. I mean, Mahogany Rush on national Swedish radio...... Doubt it has ever happened since.

They are coming to Sweden Rock Festival as well and King's X playing is reason alone to go. Their latest album is their best since Dogman, at least to my ears. All time favetrack; Fall On Me.

Those "Brown Acid" do indeed contain some great stuff, love checking out those obscure bands from way back. Listening right now to a band called "The Glass Sun", bits of Sabbath and Granicus in there. Thanks for the tip!

Willie Dee/Daffern has A really cool voice and he can also be heard on Truk, A prog/Psych band who released A pretty good album in 1971. I Saw A reformed Captain Beyond play Sweden Rock Festival in 1999 and I later read an interview with Bobby Caldwell in which be said he was pretty mad at Rhino on that occasion for making so many mistakes when he played. Can't say I noticed....

That Armageddon-album features THE most fantastic, brilliant, amazing intro-song EVER in "Buzzard". Simply stunning. What A way to start! Agree with all THE superlatives about Captain Beyond; groundbreaking to say thE least. Impossible to get tired of.

Only got the s/t and Coliseum Rock and they are Metal Blade issues from 1991. Didn't bother with Violation & Attention Shoppers back then.

One can only Hope that when there's A Change in style/sound it is A natural progression, not contrived or forced. It's A great thing when musicians stay true to themselves and also when they are first and foremost making music for THEMSELVES, like Ronnie Montrose, Steve Hackett, Kate Bush. A "take it or leave it" kind of thing. It might not mean success but at least it is Brave.

Kansas from the debut up to Audiovisions are sheer perfektion and I admit things sent A bit downhill. But just A bit. Would like to add Frank Marino/Mahogany Rush to this debate. No output is less than "good" (From The Hip 1992) but most are pure excellence (What's Next 1980, IV from 1976).

Had this question been asked around 1985 I could have replied Aerosmith, Rush, Black Sabbath but just about every band with 40 year old careers has A few clonkers. But I have to say Kansas Come pretty Close.

Not sure if it counts but 70's UK band Dirty Tricks released A comeback-album as A DOWNLOAD ONLY in 2009 so A proper CD-issue would be Nice. Especially as the material is better than reunionalbums often tends to be. And like someone mentioned; Wiggy Bits!

The music is quite enjoyable, recommendable, hard, heavy and sometimes southern but really they should lose the "Blackfoot"-tag and head out on their own. By the sound of it they could pull it off without this ridiculous concept of a former member overlooking things.

What's not to like about debut? IF You, like Me, think hardrock from the 70's is Where it's at. As for their career as A whole, my interest in them waned considerably after "Grace under pressure". Not sure why.

First three are the only studio albums I Care for and their "Live Sky" from 1978 is real gem, too, as får as livealbums go. I usually dont pay much attention to lyrics but Palumbo's are very clever, funny, odd and thoughtprovoking. Superb musicians, the bassist and drummer, especially, lock in very well. Favetrack: "Nuclear Apathy".

Like Always with lists one don't agree. Many great bands,like Angel, but in their Case I cannot understand choosing Sinful över the debut. Also would have liked A couple of obscurities ön there, like Surrender (with Zappacosta) and Face Dancer's "This world".

Sheer Greed is great. Short, punchy and quite innovative songs. Very refreshing when it came out in 1980. Still is.

Yes indeed, those Plankton albums are among the best. They are admirers of Wishbone Ash and You can definitely hear that in their music. They're even paying tribute to those guys by covering FUBB. Glad someone mentioned There And Back by Jeff Beck, one Big favourite of mine. In 1975 A Swedish band called Lotus released än absolutely amazingly selftitled album. Short, almost jazzy but highly

Swedish band Bridge To Mars, definitely. Former guitarist and drummer of Glenn Hughes' band have formed this trio, delivering modernsounding old style hardrock. Very guitarorientated but no soloing for the sake of soloing .
