I don't remember what was first, but the best was Lonesome Road. After decades, my husband loves to hear its deep, bluesy chords.

First: Joan Baez's version of Wildwood Flower, on her first Vanguard album; with Fred Hellerman playing additional guitar, IIRC.

Best: Ian and Sylvia, "Four Rode By," on their "Northern Journey" album (written by Ian), with John Herald on lead guitar.
