Holy Moses - Atilla, 1970.

Wikipedia does a pretty good job of summing this one up:

Attila was the name of a band featuring a young Billy Joel. Billy was a member of a band called The Hassles; he and the drummer, Jon Small, broke away from the Hassles and formed Attila in 1969. The instrumentation was mostly organ and drums, with Billy Joel also handling the bass lines with a keyboard, like the Doors' Ray Manzarek. Their creative partnership ended in 1970 when Joel allegedly ran off with Small's wife, Elizabeth,[1] although this did not end their collaborations, as Small produced Joel's концерт video as well as the "live at Shea stadium" performance

They released only one album, Attila, in 1970, later reissued by CBS Inc in 1985. Attila is often selected by critics and other music journalists as one of the worst rock albums of all time, but also receives a significant amount of praise from people who normally would not listen to Billy Joel. Joel himself has gone on record as describing the album as "psychedelic bullshit".[1]

Alice Cooper. Is it my Body. 1971.

I've been clear of my obsessive Alice Cooper addiction for about 8 months now, but I had this waiting in the hopper for the special day when I needed another dose of Detroit. Any bros wanna go in on some of those silver space dude suits?

Blind Faith. Had to Cry Today. 1969.

This is the first and only time you'll find me posting a jam by Slowhand. That said, this a Stevie Winwood masterpiece.

The Nice. America. 1968.

British psyche freaks stabbing organ keys with knives in an ode to our very own stomping grounds. Sounds like a party.

Scorpions. Speedy's Coming. 1974.

The Scorps shredded epidermis pretty early on in the 70's. I wonder what the guitar gods of the era thought of Uli's devout whammy assassin riffage? Methinks the lads doth protest too much.

Masters Apprentices. Future of Our Nation. 1971.

Holy mother of Kubs, these Aussie heshers sure know how to fiddle with my knobs. This apocalyptic prophesy would look perfect embroidered on a black light poster in Mancaster's bong basement. Let's ponder the future of our nation dudes!

Buddy Guy-Let Me Love You Baby. 1967.

Buddy Guy is a stone cold ripper. If he had decided to pick up swords as a younger man instead of guitars he would have chopped off our heads and thrown them into a den of panthers and howler monkeys long ago.
