    Sea Level

    They kind of went under the radar as just an Allman Brothers spin off band, but this band was excellent on stage. Thereís a full show from 77 on YouTube. Jimmy Nalls (RIP) is fantastic. I never heard the last album though. Their instrumentals were the best. Love the vocal track Thatís Your Secret.

    Great, great band. They never played near me, unfortunately. RIP Lamar Williams and Jimmy Nalls.

    Saw them play my college back in the day. I was blown away.

    A gentleman is defined as someone who knows how to play the accordion, and doesn't.

    yup, that was my take on it

    Allman bros without those annoying country rock influences (though SL wasn't completely free of them either)
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from heroin-addicts to crazy ones

    I saw them open for Renaissance at Radio City Music Hall on 2/18/77. They were unmemorable.

    But you remembered

    Reminds me of seeing Genesis in 1977, with a trio that opened for them called Makker Rakker en Stakker, which could be translated as Mate Rascal and Wrench (but that doesn't sound too well). Completely unmemorable music, but I still remember it.
