Tricky one, I was going to suggest the first Foo Fighters album but that was definitely co-produced and IIRC there was another guitar player on one track.

includes everything to do with the music. album artwork would be a bonus. there can't be that many to choose from?

At a guess then, I'd go for John Anthony Frusciante's solo work.

Didn't Babybird do the whole thing solo in his garage in Sheffield, I quite liked 'You're Gorgeous'.

Not quite> The credits for that track include a few other musicians, and a separate producer. Good old track though.

I was gonna say that. I think it fits as it was originally recorded by Bruce as "demo" tapes with view to creating the album with the E Street band and he made these completely on his own.

I think there was then some help with the production etc.

Jamie Lenman's latest album is mostly him (the second "Memory" CD, as opposed to "Muscle".

Surprised no ones mentioned Nick Drake's Pink Moon, classic album recorded in two nights with only him and his producer in the studio (only him performing). Jackson Browne solo acoustic 1 would be number one for me though, definitely only him on that one!

There must be loads out there but probably less commercial and therefore less well known, maybe more live albums. Tommy Emmanuel has a couple with just him on it as well but I can't recall which ones. John Martyn's debut album was just him, I guess a lot of his live albums are just him as well.

Robert Johnson's "King of the Delta Blues".

Good call but I always liked the truck going past - counts as an instrument as it adds to the ambience !

Were there any other musicians on Billy Bragg's first album

(cue obvious joke)

I think Tame Impala's records are all played, recorded and produced by Kevin Parker.
