    and regarding really good second albums, I'd note Jackson Browne's 2nd album, "For Everyman"
    Actually, I think Layla isn't eligible for this thread because none of the musicians were "new". It's an Eric Clapton band with a different name; made especially fine by the addition of Duane Allman to many of the tracks, who was actively recording with the Allman Brothers.

    Warren Zevon's self-titled disc from 1976 (technically not a debut, because he released an album in 1969, but for all intents and purposes the 1976 LP is a debut, so don't bug me man! :-). Chock-full of astonishing tracks.

    Tonio K, "Life in the Foodchain" - in the words of rock critic Steve Simels, "twice as angry as Elvis Costello and about six times funnier."

    The White Stripes self-titled debut CD - an emphatic statement that the garage was BACK!

    Agree about Zevon's debut album (and agree that the '69 album doesn't really count), with one stellar track after another. Warren's songs were great, but it also got a big boost from the guests who contributed. Having folks like Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Phil Everly, Don Henley, Glenn Frey, J.D. Souther, Jackson Browne and David Lindley (among others) help out on your debut album is not a bad way to get a recording career started!

    Give a spin to Bonnie Raitt's first two albums:

    Bonnie Raitt - self titled first album

    Her second - Give It Up

    - Boomer

    Terence Trent D'Arby's 'Introducing the hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby''.
    A real kicker of a debut album.

    A couple more nominations:

    Sheryl Crow - Tuesday Night Music Club. Great songs, great backing band, great production. Who knew that "Texas" rhymes with "suspected"?

    Traffic - Dear M. Fantasy. Because I was a kid and there were sitars and a Hammond B-3. What else could you ask for?

    James McMurtry to long in the wasteland . Is a solid debut album. Interesting artist that does not always live up to his potential mostly boring on the later albums.

    Thats a subject for a tread of it's own artist where you have to filter out most of the stuff to find the good ones ?
