iTunes Review

Tim Buckley died at the age of 28, leaving behind a substantial amount of challenging studio work. Many years after his death, the live recordings and studio outtakes began to surface, allowing fans the chance to better understand Buckley's creative process and to hear how his music was affected by its supporting players. This 1969 performance features material from his Blue Afternoon and Lorca period and features Buckley's key instrumental foils — guitarist Lee Underwood and conga player Carter Collins. With a small ensemble keyed intuitively to his improvisational instincts, Buckley is able to stretch the songs to the breaking point, indulge his multi-octave voice, and inject a very strong sense of the moment. The music was already becoming quite avant-garde and there's an undeniable spookiness to the performances. "Venice Mating Call," is subtitled "All We Are Saying is Give Smack a Chance." "Driftin'," "Strange Feelin’,'" and the fourteen-minute "Gypsy Woman" feature relentless emotive intensity as well as exemplary instrumental jams that are unlike much of the "jam" music of the era.

The Original

OK, I love Jeff Buckley. Who doesn't love Grace? Great album, with some all-time classics. But his father was Tim Buckley and man can he sing. Kind of like Elvis meshed with Jeff Buckley. They both died young which is even strange, Tim at 28 and Jeff in 2000. Jeff set the scene in the early 90's as the tortured soul of an artist and it worked; according to Moby who lost his girlfriend to Jeff in NY it really worked. Yes, Moby, the Moby knew Jeff. Anyway, gotta go, but Tim and exploring Tim Buckley will only get you to a place you've never been. Take the trip.

Intense, soulful jams

This free-spirited session is a huge window on a brilliant, inventive trio that drew on creative influences from psychedelia to jazz. In at least one tune, Tim alludes to smack, the deadly indulgence that ultimately led to his early demise. I found it fascinating to listen to this release alongside his son's release Live at Sin-e.

How are there not more reviews for this?

Brilliant! The live versions are much more interesting than the recorded works, but both are great. Incredibly, Tim isn't that well known. I see him as very similar to Van Morrison only with a bit more of a jazzy feel. This is my favorite. Put it on and let it run. His voice is amazing! Enjoy!


Born: February 14, 1947 in Washington D.C.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

One of the great rock vocalists of the 1960s, Tim Buckley drew from folk, psychedelic rock, and progressive jazz to create a considerable body of adventurous work in his brief lifetime. His multi-octave range was capable of not just astonishing power, but great emotional expressiveness, swooping from sorrowful tenderness to anguished wailing. His restless quest for new territory worked against him commercially: By the time his fans had hooked into his latest album, he was onto something else entirely,...
