I remember when this came out. It was, and still is, amazing. Done in what, four hours? It is way better than the "Album Review" gives it credit.

Great LP... But Their Is A Second One As Well

The reviewer states that The Soul of a City Boy was reissued under the misleading title Jesse Colin Young & the Youngbloods back in 1967. Their is in fact another LP that was released, with totally different tracks, called Jesse Colin Young & The Youngbloods back in 1967. I had that LP... it is not this one. You can get it on Amazon for $49 + but seems to be totally out of issue at this point. So it seems that their are 2 pre-Youngbloods LP's not just one.

Black Eyed Susan - worth my time every time

I lost interest in Jesse Colin Young after this album because, to me, he walked away from his strength and uniqueness. Black Eyed Susan is the only song of his I have on my iPhone and I continue to thoroughly enjoy his strong and interesting voice, the resonant recording of his fine guitar playing, and the sound of his guitar, whatever it is he’s playing (maybe a Gibson Country Jumbo?) Everything else I heard of his later, after he fell in with the folk/rock trend, bored me, but I only sampled a few of his songs to find he’d lost his primary gift: a great singer and solo musician.
