    OK, I've been knocked, I'm old. So here goes: I can still remember riding my bike (w/ banana seat) to the Woolworth's 5 & dime to pick up an 8 track of Burl Ives for my parents and having secreted away some snow shoveling/lawn mowing money to surreptitiously purchase my first 8 track, recommended by a friends older sister, whom i would have followed off a cliff..... Deep Purple's "Machine Head"
    Another great album was The Alan Parsons Project doing the whole Edgar Allan Poe thing.

    I used to have 8 tracks. I hated it when they changed tracks/programs (whatever they called them) right in the middle of a song.

    I liked, well still do like, a wide range of tunes. Some of the more obscure stuff I listen to:

    Black Sabbath - Sabotage
    Iron Maiden (before Bruce Dickensen) - Iron Maiden
    Sammy Hagar (after Montrose) - Street Machine
    Bad Company - Straight Shooter
    UFO (old stuff, when they had Michael Schenker)
    RIOT - Fire Down Under
    Rush - (I guess they are old enough to be called classic, now.)

    Ok. I listed mostly harder stuff, but the mellower stuff I liked was more mainstream :)

    OK, now your making me feel old. We didn't have banana seats when I was a kid and 8 tracks came out when I was in high school. Of course a speaker from the drive in theater wire into the radio was considered a stereo system!

    How about the The Outlaws - Green Grass & High Tides?

    The extended version was like 20 minutes and I am sure the DJ played it when he needed a smoke or take a dump.

    How about Billy Thorpe - Children of the Sun - I don't imagine too many of you have heard that one, really obscure.

    I do remember "Children of the Sun", great tune, haven't heard it in years. There is also a tune by Red Rider that was a favorite but I've forgotten the name.

    Lunatic Fringe was Red Riders biggest hit (I think - going from memory here), but it wasn't all that obscure. Great tune.

    Can't believe no bodies mentioned "Don't fear the Reaper" by BOC

    Or "Banana Boat song (Day-O)" or "Mama look a Bubu" from Harry Belafonte.

    Ok, I've spoken my piece and counted to 3...

    Apeman is a great tune. I wish that someone would release the soundtrack to the Robin Williams movie 'Club Paradise', great reggae soundtrack, Apeman included.

    No one has mentioned Uriah Heep "Stealin'".
