William C. Beeley - Gallivantin' (1970)

This very rare album is from another source. I can't remember from where but I think I have downloaded it from soulseek. The Acid Archives hear a "lost folk very Dylanesque sounding, warm and lyrical" and Fuzz, Acid and Flowers comments: "Not for all, but a major landmark for collectors of the genre that the likes of Bob Dylan, Davy Graham and Perry Leopold occupy". The guy was from Texas.

There's an updated info in the comment section of the Swan Fungus site from William Beeley himself.

Bob Dylan, who turned 70 on May 24 continues to tour for almost one third of the year to a rousing reception. The artist, as he enters eighth decade of life, has been described aptly as “the Methuselah of righteous cool” but he has been much more, a master of disdain now, a bard of decay only to surprise as a voice of longing for romance later. The elderly statesman of music has collided with forms ranging from folk to glam rock and many in between and has left them richer, altered forever.
