Ska-Reggae-punk with a social responsibility and attitude at it's best

124 The Stooges The Stooges The Stooges, also known as Iggy and the Stooges, are an American proto-punk band from Ann Arbor, Michigan, first active from 1967 to 1974, and later reformed in 2003. Although they sold few records in their original incarnation, and often performed for indifferent or hostile audiences, the Stooges are more.

Who is this? Before America. They had classics.

125 The Groundhogs

Great power trio, along with the Experience and Mahogany Rush.

I have a few albums are they are a top band with a 'blues' slant. Mr TS Mcphee is a master guitarist - Split is probably my favourite album while sont 3744 James Rd is my favourite song from album Hogwash... just love when Tony kicks the wah pedal at beginning of lead break, I think it's the sound of the switch, ?

126 Procol Harum Procol Harum Procol Harum are an English rock band formed in 1967. They contributed to the development of progressive rock, and by extension, symphonic rock.

This band is so under rated. Wish the rock stations would play more of them.

This is Trower in the early days. Awesome.

Gary Brooker piano playing and vocals are breathtaking at times... Check out "The Final Thrust" on Ninth and "Wizard Man" on Something Magic
