Willie Nelson "Laying My Burdens Down"

(RCA, 1970) This LP is perhaps most notable because Nelson does not embarrass himself at all playing around with Summer of Love-era flower generation balladry ("Where Do You Stand?" and "Minstrel Man," the former of which he composed), a man-of-all-the-people position to which he proved committed over the next half-Century. Bit I like it best for the soulful grooves of his original gospel-ish title track. This is just really good, as most of his pre-outlaw breakthrough albums prove to be when you track down the justly, but sadly, expensive LPs.
