Really tried to keep this to just 1 or 2 albums, but my subconscious got the better of me.
Not that obscure in some circles, but gems nevertheless:

And, although certainly not unknown, I couldn't NOT include the greatest pop/rock debut of all time (maybe?), Roxy Music (shortly to be released as a deluxe box set with 5.1 surround mix courtesy of the great Steven Wilson, who has also done a wonderful job with the Yes, Jethro Tull and King Crimson back catalogues): ...

Nils Lofgren's first solo release in 1975.

Nils Lofgrens first (and best ever) solo album titled Nils Lofgren. Every song is excellent. I still have my original vinyl I purchased in 1975, still in perfect condition. Here is a link to the album cover. ... lbum_cover).jpg

The album received a lot of praise, but in my music and audiophile circle, no one I know ever heard of it and I don't believe any songs made FM airplay.

Here are some comments from the wiki:

The album was critically praised at the time of its release, most notably in a 1975 Rolling Stone review by Jon Landau. The 1983 Rolling Stone Record Guide said it was a "tour de force of unquenchable vitality and disarming subtlety." In 2007, nearly 32 years after the release of Nils Lofgren, the album was again praised by Rolling Stone in the "Fricke's Picks" column, where David Fricke said it was one of 1975's best albums.[3] The album was on the Billboard 200 chart for nine weeks and peaked at number 141 on May 10, 1975.[4
