Your list reminds me of the disparity I've long felt "classic rock" radio stations have always had.

 

Several of the artists on your list have certainly had much better songs in their body of work that might wind up being played on most of those stations.

 

for example, on the "classic rock" station in MY area, for several years, whenever they'd play a song by the Guess Who, it was usually "No Sugar Tonight", which while not that bad a tune, was FAR from their best or most popular.  Same with the group SPIRIT which the song by THAT GROUP the station would play was "Nature's Way".

 

I'll try to make a list.  You might see one or TWO from yours, but don't count on much more---

 

 

"My Generation"--Who

 

"I Am The WAlrus"--The Beatles

 

"****/Jumpin' Jack Flash"---The Rolling Stones

 

"Oh, Well(Pts 1 & 2)"  Fleetwood Mac

 

"Ride, Captain Ride"---Blues Image

 

"Sufferagette City"---David Bowie

 

 

"Fresh Garbage"/ "Mechanical World"---Spirit

 

"Saskatoon"/ "Albert Flasher"---Guess Who

 

 

"LA Woman"/ "Roadhouse Blues"---The Doors

 

"Voodoo Child(Slight return)"---Jimi Hendrix

 

"Don't Eat the Yellow Snow"--Frank Zappa

 

"Starship Trooper"/ "Heart Of the Sunrise"---Yes

 

"Karn Evil 9"---Emerson Lake and Palmer

 

"Eleventh Earl of Mar"---Genesis

"L.A. WOMAN" used to be a top favorite of mine,but it's been on the downswing lately.

For two people of very different tastes both to have selected "Suffragette City" and "****" is an indication of their excellence.

Hee-hee!

 

Do you mean the SONG'S excellence, or OURS? :lol:

 

Also....Thin Lizzy did a song called "Showdown" that I have trouble locating anywhere.  I liked it better than the two mentioned, and I liked THOSE a LOT!

 

A disturbing aside:

 

I once( about five years or so ago) called the local "classic rock" station around here( WCSX) and asked the "request hotline" guy, "Just play anything by MOBY GRAPE!"   HE replied, "Ummm....er, I don't think we HAVE any recordings by MOBY here....he's too new!"

 

I repeated, "Not MOBY, Einstein, MOBY GRAPE!"  To which he sadly, and depressingly replied, "I'm not sure WHO you MEAN, sir!"

 

I just hung up without saying anything..... :huh:

That first album by Moby Grape was simply outstanding.

 

What a tragically-managed group.

I agree.

 

And NOW, I'm on a search for the "Par-excellence"   "Grape Jam" LP( or hopefully, there's a CD re-issue!)

If you can't find "Grape Jam", watch THE BISHOP'S WIFE instead. At least you'll keep it in the family.
