Delaney and Bonnie Bramblett. Great roots and blue eyed soul from the late 60's and early 70's.
Their touring band, Delaney and Bonnie and Friends, was ridiculous.
Members included Leon Russell, Eric Clapton, Dave Mason, Bobby Keys & Jim Price on horns, 2 more of Derek and The Dominos, Kenny Gradney (Little Feat) and Jim Dickinson. Duane Allman and Gram Parsons also played with them.
Plus Delaney wrote Lonesome and A Long Way from Home, and turned Jerry on to Goin Down the Road Feelin Bad (the GD's version is close to the one he arranged) Cool

Really?
wiki sez: David Byrne (born May 14, 1952) is a Scottish-born musician and artist arguably most associated with his role as a founding member and principal songwriter of the American new wave band Talking Heads, which was active between 1975 and 1991. Since then, Byrne has released his own solo projects on record, and worked in a variety of media, including film, photography, opera, and Internet-based projects. He has received Grammy, Oscar, and Golden Globe awards for his achievements. As a member of Talking Heads, Byrne has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I hope his millions compensate him for this lack of appreciation. If these are the standards, I nominate Bob Dylan.

Actual nomination: Guitar Shorty

Nice to see the love for Sister Rosetta.

I'll throw out Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre, Louisiana Red, and Enrique Delgado.

I have no idea who any of those people are...
Obscure... yes. Underrated... maybe, I couldn't tell you.

Kalaparusha is a saxophonist and band leader who was among the early members of the AACM in Chicago in the 60's who, despite recording a few albums, ended up playing in subways and on street corners in the 80's and 90's before catching a break and returning to the club and festival circuit as well as recording a few albums. He rarely falls into the honking and squeaking stereotype of the free jazz musician and is often far more interesting and accessible than his contemporaries, like Anthony Braxton and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, who have garnered a great deal more success and acclaim.

Louisiana Red is a blues guitarist who started recording in 1949, played with John Lee Hooker in the 50's, had a small hit with "I'm Too Poor to Die" in '64. He moved to Europe in the Early 80's and while he does record regularly and presumably makes a nice living touring, he tends to slip under the radar despite being both an immense talent and a link to the early days of electric blues.

Enrique Delgado was the premier talent and innovator (being among the early users of the Moog synthesizer in pop music) of the Cumbia Peruana scene of the 60's and 70's. He does at least garner accolades within certain circles and has gained some belated respect due to the efforts of his widow to continue to market his music. Cumbia Peruana is generally overlooked in favor of the contemporaneous Tropicalia movement in Brazil that was also a fusion of Rock and more traditional South American musics.

Of course, there are hundreds of other similar stories of musicians who have done breathtaking work only to be considered journeyman musicians. These three came to mind.
