Justen O'Brien & Jake
Justen worked in his North Dakota basement from 76-78 with the kind of vigor that never survives into adulthood. He was recognized by the people around him as some kind of genius savant, and he annoyed the hell out of everyone with his ambitions for the record. Perhaps Justen just wasn't made for this world. Comparisons abound -- Jade Stone and Luv, Bobb Trimble, Bob Smith, DR Hooker, Arthur Lee / Love... But you only have to hear about ten seconds of it to know there's nothing else like it.
