Sir Lord Baltimore - Ah yes, a person after my own heart. Title song Kingdom Come is very Black Sabbath-ish. Reportedly they were first band called "Heavy Metal" in Creem magazine.
Gamalon is great music, I have 4 of their CDs, I'd like to think they're not that obscure.
Here's some that I have/had the albums from:
Ultimate Spinach, Chocolate Watch Band, Mae Blitz, Tucky Buzzard, Hour Glass (Allman Bros band), Orpheus, Crazy World of Arthur Brown (not really too obscure - Carl Palmer start), Bloodrock, Porcupine Tree, Michael Stanley Band, Poundhound, Spooky Tooth (again not really too obscure).
I got plenty more if anyone wants to really dig into R&R musical history.

Hey Kick Asner -
There was also a band named Widowmaker with Dee Snyder - I know you're spot on with your description (especially calling out Luther Grosvenor - cheers to you for that), but interesting there were two Widowmaker bands.

Lothar was the group's theramin. In the early 70's Kim King came and auditioned for the band I was in in New Jersey. They had relocated from out west somewhere and minor success as an opening act for some groups.

The Dear Hunter. They have made what I can only call a concept album on crack, because it is not just one album, but SIX albums (the sixth has yet to be released). Here's a YouTube video with the first 5 albums in order: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5eGNWtS-WM

Ever thought of making all four into one big supergroup? Maybe for one big gig? Markapalooza :idea:

Short answer... No.

Longer answer....

But Kenny (gtr) and Mike (drums) play w THE 121's and The Spincasters.

Kenny will be helping PJAZZ out when he sits in on a cpl of dates that Bill (bassman) will be missing. I'll move over to bass and we'll be in trio mode w him playing the heads and doing most of the soloing.. He's a great rock, blues, and ctry gtrst but really is not a jazz cat by any stretch so it'll be interesting.

I've tried to get Sarah (fiddler/gtrst/bassist/vclst in MM's ) out to sit in w THE 121's at the trkstop but so far no dice.
