Ramblin' Jack Elliott: A Stranger Here

Whether Elliott directly absorbed what was happening remains questionable, but he certainly soaked up the songs and culture on a deeper, more primal level.

Ramblin Jack Elliott: I Stand Alone

The album's 16 tracks clock in at a mere 32-and-a-half minutes, but there's a fullness to the disc because Elliott gives it all on every song, no matter the length. There really isn't a bad cut on the record.
