Eric Andersen-Today is the highway (1965 Debut)

This was made back in the days when it was just the singer, his guitar and his harmonica. Oh yes the comparisons to Bob Dylan were endless and for good reason. Andersen was blessed with the similar talents of Dylan. Just like Dylan's early albums there are plenty of good self penned songs that are sung with the same intensity a lone folksinger would require to succeed. Unlike Dylan, Eric's songs are less political and surreal. They tend more toward romantical topics. Also Eric is a fingerpicker (pretty much pattern style) which gives a softer backdrop to his songs.

both are from 1969 on Warner Bros I believe. One is self titled, "Eric Andersen," and the other is "Avalanche."
