The Ocean Led Zep 7/8 and 8/8
Check out also Karizma Document with Vinnie coliauta and Dave Garfield. Some insanely technical stuff.
Radiohead did a bit of experimenting
Tool with Danny Carey often plays with odd time.
Also check out Gavin Harrison with Porcupine Tree.
often odd time signatures are less accessible as they can sound awkward or contrived. The trick is making it work within the context of a song.
I own the double LP set *Dave Brubeck/Adventures in Time* (Columbia G30625). From the liner notes, here are the time figures from some of the tunes: Unsquare Dance - 7/4; Castilian Drums - 5/4; Countdown - 10/4; Maori Blues - 6/4. The music is interesting, but the sound quality of these '70s sides ain't the best.
