The Youngbloods: Ride the Wind [Raccoon, 1971]
What hath folk-rock wrought? Or is it Marin County, or "owning" your own label? A lot of third-hand Barney Kessel and/or Dave Brubeck that couldn't have second-billed at the Half Note in 1957 plus some very occasional vocals from ol' Jess, who sounds like Mel Torme after 2000 micrograms and three months of Diet No. 7. Country vibes don't mean spilling your seed on the ground.
