John Stewart's first solo album, "Signals Through the Glass"co-billed to his wife Buffy Ford although Stewart wrote the songs and is the dominant singeris a quirky but pretty good record, sounding like a passe folk revival veteran suddenly waking up to the turbulent late s and doing his damnedest to catch up in a hurry. The Strawbs' lates debut album was pretty good British folk-rock; I've never seen it on CD, though perhaps Get It On - Various - The Sounds Of Rock Revolution (Vinyl come out on some obscure import.
The Gentle Soul's self-titled album, featuring singer-songwriter Pam Polland, is pretty good though not astounding rootsy L. Oddly it's been reissued as a collector-targeted vinyl LP, but not on CD.

They are still barely known, though some people know of Vern Gosdin one of the two Gosdin Brothers, with Rex Gosdin from his subsequent career as a country star.
Gene Parsons, drummer for the Byrds in the late s and early s when Clarence White was also in the group, played on "Sounds of Goodbye. I think he's the best songwriter in the bunch of the Byrds, and spoke the same language as Vern and Rex. It's not an affected style. It's plain, honest, and straight from the heart. There were a lot of younger musicians [who] would come and listen to Vern and Rex, and get pretty excited when they'd hear them sing. They were never real strong stage personalities.
They were into the music; they weren't into the showmanship. It was right in the gray area that didn't fall into any playlist category, either on the rock stations or the country stations. It was a little too out there for the country stations, and a little too out there in another way for the rock stations. Both these guys were trying to raise families, and it was difficult. They were getting a little older, and a little desperate about what direction they should go to have some monetary success.

Rok Klasa II a. Whether or not it was designed that way, Browne's second album was a reaction to his first. Faced with making a followup Get It On - Various - The Sounds Of Rock Revolution (Vinyl his successful debut, Browne beefed up some of his older songs and crafted an album that was even better than his other one, a personal, and melancholic, look at Vietnam-era anxiety blanketed in mostly sunny melodies.

Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut is a lot more wistful than its southern-rock label implies.

The band would fill out its sound with horns and more over the years, but they're at their best on the quietly soulful 'Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd.
