Does anyone know any good classic rock hidden gems; bands or songs?

Well, besides some of the obvious Pink Floyd stuff like Another Brick in the Wall (Pt. 2), Floyd also has some lesser known music that is very good. Check out the album- Obscured by Clouds- I recommend "Stay" and "Wot's... Uh the Deal?" The album- Meddle - has some decent stuff like "Fearless" and "A Pillow of Winds". "Green is the Colour", from More is good, as well as "If", "Fat Old Sun", and "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" from Atom Heart Mother. "Grantchester Meadows" is an awesome gem in the middle of the very strange album, Ummagumma.
So even though The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall are great, it's always good to check out the underrated albums because one may never know what they will find.

90's: not much of a classic rock era but still, if your looking for great songs from the bands im listening to most of them have work re-published into better versions in the 90's-00's era

Thanks man, I really appreciate you taking a minute to help me out.I'm not so sure those are "hidden gems", (maybe to most people) but most of the stuff you mentioned kicks ass, I love Chicago too.The bands I don't know are James Earl Jones, Golden Erring, & Isley Brothers... so I'll definitely check them out.I live to find good classic rock and I know LOTS, so if you want let me know & I'll write a list of songs you may not know (I guarantee not all of them) and I know I have the same style of music so you'll like it I'm sure.Anyway thanks for the answer.

P.S. I was born in 89 & grew up with classic rock, how about you?
