You mean, like people who think Guns'n'Roses wrote Knockin' on Heaven's Door....LOL.
 
Better version of this is ZELIG ... a German band, and it was the soundtrack of the German film of the same name that was ripped up badly later! And if you did not see the original, you missed the hilarious bit in the end!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

^ Wow...I always thought this was the original version of "In the Court of the Crimson King"...

I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Whilst the year it was made will not affect the purchase of an album for me, there is some examples where the date an album is released can be detrimental to the band.

The most notable example I can think of is the band 'National Health'. Their albums were released in 1977, '78 and '81. They are a Canterbury Scene band with a very similar sound to 'Hatfield and the North', who are at least in the prog rock community quite well known. But, I don't hear so much about them on 'Prog Archives' which is quite a shame.

If they released their albums around '71-'75, I think in the prog rock community, they would be more well known.

A few years ago I went into Tower Records and picked up the double CD "National Health Complete".  This was before slimline jewel cases so it was a pretty big box.  The cashier (named Beau) was clearly the most knowledgeable in the store and I'm pretty sure outside he ran his own record collectors business and almost always had a comment for any prog CD that I bought.  He looked at this one and started laughing.  I asked him what was so funny.  He said something like, "A National Health complete?  They only have like 2 albums anyway".  

Seem's PA isn't the only place this band doesn't get any respect LOL
