I think you would like the Karl Blake one. Some really great songs on it and enormous guitar...

Headhunters LP is the perfect summer jazz/funk fusion and groovy electronic keyboards from the creative end of the 70's spectrum...

Early Day miners - americana guitars and vocals (lovely ambling stuff) who's early sound was not unlike the Red House Painters...

Guess Joni is a bit too folksy singer songwriter for you but she's a favourite to my hippy side...
