Myhamish Posted February 5, 2006 Share Posted February 5, 2006 What's your favourite under-rated group or band? Instead of being famous and remembered, their music is like a candle being hidden under a bushel basket. Sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties, now - rock, jazz, blues, folk or whatever - who should be playing Superbowl half time shows next? My pick is 'The Collectors' from Vancouver, Canada - a late sixties band that recorded two albums for Warner Brothers then morphed into Chilliwack who became the Canadian house band until 'Blue Rodeo' came along. The Collectors were great experimenters utilizing five part harmony (Lydia Purple), Gregorian chants (What Love Suite) and sax solos second only to Lou Reed's 'Walk on the Wild Side'. Apparently, Bill Henderson, one of the original Collectors is still touring around somewhere. So what's your pick? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
