What are some noteable bands or artists that only released one album? Perhaps the group broke up before recording a follow-up. Perhaps the artist died or quit the music scene before making another record. This isn't a common situation, but I'm sure it did happen.

The Sex Pistols--Never Mind the Bullocks--one studio album and lots of McLaren garbage after that!
By the way...Bullocks was garbage too!

Chris Bell, 'I Am the Cosmos' (which wasn't even released during his sadly short lifetime, though he did get to release a single)

The Modern Lovers, s/t (a collection of recordings compiled and released a couple of years after the band's breakup)

Armageddon ~ Self Titled 1975

Hard rock, progressive rock band from England. This is one of my favorite 70's albums. One song on the album "Silver Tightrope" has a real cool psychedelic atmosphere.

Bobby Caldwell, drums
Louis Cennamo , bass
Martin Pugh, guitar
Keith Relf, vocals

Brent Mydland (before joining The Grateful Dead) and Tom Leadon (Bernie's brother)...I saw them open for America in 1976.
Brent was very good (voice and piano) I was amazed see him join The Dead...a perfect addition!

great call with Armageddon, Zaplightning. I love that record,too. I always wondered what the followup would have sounded like.

I believe Flint(the three members of Grand Funk without Mark Farner) made one record only

Boston and AC/DC both had multiple albums so the above post doesn't work

Loudmouth was a hard rock band that released their only album in 1999. They had 1-2 minor radio hits that year.

Really? Are you sure? REALLY sure??? I question it because everything I hear from them sounds like the same album to me....

"I'm sick and tired of people saying that we put out 11 albums that sound exactly the same. In fact, we've put out 12 albums that sound exactly the same."

How could I forget Beck, Bogert and Appice and yet I included Derringer, Bogert and Appice? It should have been obvious to me, but I missed that one.

How about the Rossington Collens Band? Did they put out more than one studio album?

Two - 'Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere' and 'This is the Place' both very good and worth a listen.

Thanks, Johnny Bee. The only song I've ever heard from Rossington Collins Band was "Don't Misunderstand Me". I need to go back and check them out. If they're not out of print, I bet they might be cheap now.

Some Mike Bloomfield works-not sure if they released more than one.

Super Session-Bloomfield, Kooper and Stills
KGB-with Kennedy, Grech and Goldberg
Electric Flag-another album? (studio)

Ursa Major - Ursa Major
Guitar legend Dick Wagner's shortlived power trio (w/Ricky Mangone on drums & former Amboy Dukes bassist Greg Arama)released one Bob Ezrin-produced album on RCA, then flamed out.

Trivia: according to Wagner, originally the band was a guitar/drums/keyboards trio, to be called World War III. The keyboard player/vocalist left the band before they hit the studio or the stage, replaced by bassist Arama, with Wagner
taking over the lead vocals.
The keyboardist/vocalist who bailed out...Billy Joel.
