Which do you feel ...

are your (own/personal) most underrated artist/lps? The ones that at least should have more exposure or be the topic of more discussion.

Gary Louris "Vagabonds"
John Fogerty "Revival"
Pink Floyd "the final cut"
Viridian beat me to the Pat Boone classic so I'll have to list my alternative choice of Van Morrison's Veedon Fleece.
I'll add Phil Ochs to the list of artists deserving wider recognition. I discovered his music long after his death.
