Consumer Guide Reviews:

John David Souther [Asylum, 1972]
In a club, this person whines like any other acoustic singer-songwriter, but backed by Los Angeles' finest he whines like a real country-rock singer. That is, he sounds insipid until you listen close, when you discover that he isn't even that nice. C+

Further Notes:

Distinctions Not Cost-Effective [1970s]: Souther sounds insipid until you listen close. Then you realize he isn't that nice.
