Let me recommend to the novice the albums Flying Cowboys and Traffic From Paradise, or to the more willing to experiment, RLJ's eponymous album or the subsequent Pirates. For a good all-acoustic kind of best-of, no home should be without Naked Songs.
This has been a Rickie Lee Jones/Firefly PSA in the hopes of spreading the love and the fannishness in both directions.
