1967 never sounded so good! Inc. 'Carnival Song', 'Hallucinations' & 'Once I Was'. Now import only CD.
Before Tim Buckley got carried away with jazz rhythms in the 1970s, he made profoundly moving folk-rock albums such as Goodbye and Hello
which showcased his stunning vocal range, thoughtful lyrics and a penchant for imbuing songs with surprisingly soulful, non-blue-eyed grooves and infectious jangle-pop melodies. This, his second album (recorded in 1967 when he was only 20), runs the gamut. Here Buckley hints at the sensual howl that would blossom in the 1970s ("I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain", "Pleasant Street", "Hallucinations"). While he goes into hippie-poet-deep-thinker mode on a few songs, it's the excellent folk-soul tracks that win out. --Lorry Fleming
