That’s the only Machine Head album I’ve heard and The Blackening has been recommended by @TVDenimChap also I think so I’ll do that soon and thanks.
I’ve started back on the Fall Of Efrafa debut album today and I’ll listen for a week or so although I did listen to it about a month back but it kind of qualifies and I’m set on doing that next. Plus I’m really enjoying it and that will probably show in the write up. I feel the Machine Head is far from my best writing but that kind of reflects my take on the album probably, it’s good, just not super my thing.
I have heard Fudge Tunnel and seen them live late 80’s / early 90’s but I like your other suggestion a lot, never heard of Power Trip at all and that’s a perfect suggestion, thanks again. Will whack a link here when the time comes.
