    I would have said especially more Mark solo stuff, but yeah. I agree on this.

    I would also like to nominate the Replacements, Television, Radio Birdman, Miles Davis' Bitches Brew-era band and In Solitude (hah).

    Deep Purple (MKII lineup)
    Asia (original lineup)
    ....however, both lineups had successful reunions. Each lineup recording three more albums.

    Then there's...

  8. The Beatles. They should have taken a couple years off. Got whatever solo venture out of their systems and then reconvened. 8 years was like the blink of an eye nowadays.

  10. Spiral Starecase (1968-1970)


    About 18 months after the single's release of "More Today Than Yesterday" in 1969 which peaked at #12 but have sold more than a million copies, and after releasing one album and a couple more singles, the group disbanded in 1970 due to poor management and squabbles over finances.

  13. MAGIC (1969-1973)


    Line-up for this album (which was produced by Scott Regan) was Joey Murcia (Guitar), Duanne King (Guitar), Nick King (Bass) & Gary Harger (drums).

    Brothers Duanne & Nick King joined Langsing band the Next Exit in 1968. In 1969 they changed their name to Magic and released a single on their own label in the same year. Joey Murcia, a Miami native joined late 1969. He had played with that city's Birdwatchers, and was also a session player for TK Records in Miami and was able get the band a record deal with the label, so they moved to Miami, becoming the label's first white group signed to the label. They recorded their first LP in the summer of 1969, which saw release on their own Armadillo label.

    Th group returned to Michigan in 1970. Scott Regan helped to get the band signed to the Rare Earth label, and, in 1971, began recording their second album. The self-titled album, which featured songs composed by the group, was released in 1972 to some good reviews and featured Stevie Wonder playing keyboards on "Alexis", but not long after the album's release, Motown move West leaving Magic without a label. In 1973 the band called it quits and folded.

    Lots of bands that only had one album, like the Sex Pistols and the La's.

    Then again, maybe they would have went the way of the Stone Roses and their second album.
