    I don't think anyone's mentioned "Out of the Cradle" by Lindsey Buckingham.
    It's pretty great!

    I've always liked Steve Howe's "Beginnings."

    I agree. And sorry about the overly large picture, it was the first one I came across.

    Another post said Every Picture Tells A Story is the clear winner. Looks like Bella Donna is. I like the album a lot but sort of a surprise so many chose it.

    Not sure what Neil Young records from the CSNY era would qualify here?

    After the Gold Rush

    Any one of these three solo albums put out by J Mascis would fit the bill for me:

    If Neil Young is considered a member of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young from 1973 onwards, we're spoiled for options...

    i would go with the first Ace Frehley Album. Altough after getting older and wiser i developed some faible for the Peter Criss Album too.

    however this thread aroused curiosity for the Chris Squire Album as i havent heard that yet.

    All my favourites have come when the artist has left their group (Brian Eno, Lou Reed) so I will pick a more modern album,Anima by Thom Yorke

    Maybe just because it was such a surprise at the time.

    Brett Anderson, Black Rainbows (2011):


    Though I prefer his Slow Attack album from 2009 over this, Black Rainbows was written and recorded shortly after Suede reformed in 2010.

    Jerry Garcia Garcia and Bob Weir Ace — both released as solo albums (despite having the Dead playing on them).

    It's a close call between Lindsey Buckingham's 'Out Of The Cradle' and Stevie Nicks's 'Bella Donna'...but I think that 'Out Of The Cradle' just shades it for me.

    Blind Willie McTell's Atlanta Twelve String.
    Recorded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1949.
    Solo in every sense of the world, but the music is full and multi-layered.

    The Devil Got My Woman was recorded in 1963 or 1964 and released in 1968.

    Skip James plays to an oddly-strung guitar and a discordant piano.
    The songs are about suffering, superstition, murder, confusion and isolation.
    He sings in a full-bodied high ghostly voice that will curdle your blood if you're the sensitive type.
