I like a lot of late 60's/70's garage rock, acid rock, pre-punk etc. It's pretty easy to find such stuff with a lot of labels doing garage reissues. I like stuff like Blue Cheer, first couple by Judas Priest, and have heard a few comps of unearthed heavy psych like "An Overdose of Heavy Psych" but I don't know where I'd start to find more of the pre/early metal stuff. I'm familiar with a few companies doing 80's traditional metal and NWOBHM reissues but what bands should I seek out from the 70's? Preferably stuff that is in print but I'll take any recommendations, thanks!

Try out the two first Captain Beyond albums from 1972 and 1973. Absolute classics. These have also been reissued on vinyl and should not be too hard to grab.

Mountain relased a few early nuggets, and another personal favourite is the band KAK with their only album of same name. There is a pretty easy to obtain collection based on the album called Kak-ola with pretty much all they released.

Alot of great classics already mentioned.. also:

Flower Travellin' Band (Japanese EXTREMELY HEAVY psych. from late 60's Metal as fuck). Don't know if their recordings have been reissued on LP at all (originals are valuable and rare I understand) but CD versions are fairly easy to find.

Sir Lord Baltimore -- Self Titled and the second record both slam hard.

Cactus -- all albums rip

Ram Jam -- Portrait of the Artist as a Young Ram LP (some fluff in there, but overall a slamming rock album)

UFO -- Phenomenon was not mentioned as well, which is odd. Totally wild album.

Joe Perry Project -- Let the Music do the talking LP. Not overly metal but rowdy as fuck and has some great dirges in there.

and on and on.

Leafhound "Grower of Mushrooms" is an absolute MUST OWN!
Road- "S/T" is an awesome record (Noel Redding's post Hendrix band)
Cactus- any of the first 3 (s/t, restrictions, one way or another)
Wishbone Ash -'s/t' or 'Argus'
Captain Beyond was already mentioned, just wanted to reiterate, the first two are absolutely essential

Thanks! You may be getting some of my money then... Wink

I've been looking online all day and it's tough to find anywhere in the US that specializes in this stuff where I could get a bunch on one order. Still gotta wrap my head around what's been reissued on LP and what is CD only, what is "collectible", what is not... but you guys turned up some great leads on what I'm looking for, thanks!

Deep Purple in Rock is the best for heavy rock. Fireball, Machine Head, Who Do We Think We Are!, and Burn are great as well.

Rainbow - Rising and Long Live Rock 'n' Roll

And, uh, I'm surprised no one mentioned Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. Too obvious?
