This is a continuation of  Collection of Rare or Lesser-Known Rock Classics ( containing 125 groups, artists and songs ) and our 37th or 38th music list.

Some of you might remember a few of these…they might have had some National exposure, or were a hit in your local area. Or maybe you saw them play a club, or on a reunion tour with other lesser-known groups. One thing for sure, there’s a lot more out there than what they play on Top 40 radio or those Classic Oldies Stations. And if you dig the 60′s and 70′s you should lend an ear, you’ll like what you hear! So get your groove on Baby, cause it’s gonna be outta sight!
