I listen to 'classic rock' radio periodically.

However I've grown tired of hearing the same predictable playlists of songs being played.

I'm more intrigued with discovering underrated and under the radar songs and/or albums.

Two of the above examples I'm referring to are 'Back From Rio' (1991) by Roger McGuinn and 'Out Of The Cradle' (1992) by Lindsey Buckingham.

These albums should've been huge hits. Regardless they're great.

Hm, looking back on my playlist, those aren't such deep cuts as you're probably looking for.

Yeah, that link works great when you don't have a spotify account.

Neither deep cuts nor under the radar bands. Not that impressive lol it's just well known bands you like and a few non-singles

It's a step down from the debut and Candy-O but still a fantastic album.

What's more fun than an underrated, a/k/a obscure stuff I like, thread?

How under the radar is Traffic's debut, Mr. Fantasy? Because it was very under the radar for me until recently, and I think it's fantastic!

Came out in 1971 and I was a fan after the first listen.  Production / recording is muddy but that's ok.

Cold Chisel is one of those bands that never really caught on in the US.  Their third album, East, featured the song "Cheap Wine", which became a hit of sorts for them.  The international version of the album added the track "Khe Sahn", one of Cold Chisel's most iconic tracks.
