I can't do just one. Here's a short list, trimmed down as much as I can stand it:
Laura Nyro: Eli and the Thirteenth Confession
Kate Bush: Hounds of Love
Vashti Bunyan: Just Another Diamond Day
Roberta Flack: Quiet Fire
Anita O'Day: Pick Yourself Up
Sister Rosetta Tharpe: Gospel Train
Way too many. Besides Joan and Joni:
Laurie Anderson - Strange Angels
Kate - Hounds of Love
Neko Case - all of them
Toni Childs - House of Hope
Marianne Faithful - Broken English
Kat Edmonson - Way Down Low
Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain
Nanci Griffith - There's a Light..., Last of three True Believers, Once in a Very Blue Moon
Emmylou - Red Dirt Girl
Melody Gardot - My One and Only Thrill
Rickie Lee s/t
Michelle Shocked - Arkansas Traveller
Mazzy Star - So Tonight...
Nina - I Put a Spell on You
#2 after Carole King's Tapestry. That's pretty good competition in denying first place.
Hole - Celebrity Skin - 1998
The Donnas - Gold Medal - 2004
Tracy Chapman - Telling stories
Such a wonderful album with a cool, smart mix of pop and soul.
Janis Joplin - I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama
Here's one of my absolute favorites, if sex had a voice it would sound like Chante Moore...
Junko Onishi Trio, Live at the Village Vanguard, Vol. 1. Blue Skies is one of the standouts although the whole album is great. Listen to how they hammer V7 chord from 1:09-2:46 and then break into this gorgeous, gentle yet intense, hard swing:
Adele - 21
other than most of the albums mentioned above I go with Charlie Dore-Where To Now?
Tapestry, C. King
Blue - Joni Mitchell
My Tidal history says it is Kathleen Edwards - Total Freedom.
I love sister band Smoosh's album Withershins....good luck finding it on cd
In My Life - Judy Collins
Siouxsie - Mantaray.
This goes way back to 2007 or so.
She stepped out, going solo with this.
It got a pretty good reception.
After this album it seems to me, that she's left the music scene completely.
Don't know if she has recorded or released anything following this.
Great back catalogue with The Banshees
Lots of incredible albums but this is my travelog through life
“You just picked up a hitcher, a prisoner of the white lines of the freeway”
“Like Icarus ascending on beautiful foolish arms”
“I’ve got the apple of temptation and a diamond snake around my arm”
“There’s comfort in melancholy, when you do or you do not resign”
the first album that got me interested in a female artist to such a degree that it felt like a breakthrough for me as a male teenager:
Top 3 would be:
Dusty in Memphis
Joni Mitchell: Court and Spark
PJ Harvey: Stories from the City...
Female led Aussie band Baby Animals. Even Nuno thought so!!
