When I think of the soul of rock and roll, I tend to think of bands like The Flamin’ Groovies, bands that you should hear on classic rock radio but don’t, bands who hit that main vein of rock just a few times, with just a few gems (as opposed to a bunch of great records).
Here are three tunes that I think could easily replace a couple of tired classic rock repeaters (Nazareth’s version of “Love Hurts” maybe? Anything by Peter Frampton?). Take a listen:
Shake Some Action
Intrigued? The story of the Flamin’ Groovies is interesting, weird, and kind of hilarious. Get the Groovies’ history and discography here.
