GREAT UNDERRATED ALBUM: WILLIE NELSON'S SPIRIT
A lot of Willie Nelson albums have a stunt-y vibe to them. They are often a genre exercise, or have a lot of "stunt-casting of special guests. Not Spirit. Released in 1996, it was produced by Willie, featuring all songs written by Willie and had just a small band: Willie, sister Bobbie Nelson on piano, Johnny Gimble on fiddle and Jody Payne on guitar. It's a great album, that didn't get much hype, and if you're a Willie fan, you should check it out.
