I was thinking about this topic yesterday. I can think of McCartney doing it on his first solo release and I think Joe Satriani did it on Surfing with Aliens, but I cannot name any others. Can you?
Come to thiink of it, Satriani did not play drums on that release he used a drum track. That may not qualify.
What others are there?

Jerry Garcia's debut GARCIA, with the help of Bill Kreutzmann on the drums.



BOSTON was basically a Tom Scholtz solo album even though there was a photo of the band on the back cover.

I always thought that Talking Book by Stevie Wonder was all performed by Stevie .... pretty sure.

:edit: i'm wrong! haha ... there's some album i'm thinkin' of, but ... slips my mind - thought that Stevie did one (?). oh well. (or maybe it's just one song i'm thinking of...)

I was speaking with Albert Simpson of Highly Kind last night on this very topic.
Albert said he has recently purchased equipment that will allow him to do this.
He said that the songs he writes are never recorded or played like he creates them in his head, and that this way, people can hear them like he thought them. Interesting idea.

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong...didn't Hendrix play everything on some tracks? Maybe not full albums? Or did he just play guitar and bass on some tracks? (Honestly don't know)

I think Lenny Kravitz played all or most of the instruments on Let Love Rule.

Scott Tournet, lead guitarist for The Nocturnals/Blues & Lasers has one also.

http://www.acousticmusic.com/fame/p04080.htm

Scott is one of the best of the next generation of guitarists/musiciians.

2010 will be a big year for him and the Nocturnals.

He played most of the guitars, basses and drums, but none of the horns or keyboards, which are on every song. And i think there may be a few extra guitarists or bass players on there too...

Well, Pete did everything on his tracks, but there are 2 tracks that aren't all him.

McCartney also played all the instruments on The Fireman's ELECTRIC ARGUMENTS album too.

Townshend's LIFEHOUSE box set is pretty amazing talking about a guy doing it all, writing, playing, singing, recording, etc...

It doesn't seem like there is often records done completely by one person. It's not that there aren't the musicians out there that couldn't do it. I certainly do all my demos playing guitars, basses, drums, keyboards & vocals... it's not that hard if you know how to play those instruments, but it does lack one of the most beautiful elements of music: collaboration.

Off the top of my head, I think Steve Winwood did for one of his solo albums. But, I could be wrong. I just think I heard that to be the case, somewhere along the line.
