So Sound Opinions did a neat themed-show this past week about One-and-Done or 1-album and then the artist/band never made a full length album again.
I want/wanted to find the time to write about many of these, but alas, I'm in the middle of about 3 or 15 projects not involving Music/Entertainment (Taxes, a Car accident, etc), and not enough time to go into detail about so many of these. Many of them are all-time favorites, but this is not exactly a full ranking, other than maybe the 1st 4-5, or so.
But all of these albums I do enjoy and find quite to as I said, all-time favorites.
And a reunion album of any kind from any of them would be totally welcome and something I would certainly get excited about.
Maybe, but unlikely more later. But they'll show up in this blog of course in many other entries. Namely the Calendar Year Chronologies and Rankings I've been doing.

they don't qualify as they recorded a reunion album in 2005, but they most definitely would have before then. Eric Johnson's featured jazz-fusion band in the mid 70's. A very enjoyable record.
Bands with 1 album under said name, but then later changed their band to a different name. Not exactly qualifying. Although technically Call Florence Pow/Apes and Androids falls under this one as well.
