It seems absolutely incredible in these media crazed days that any one artist in any branch of what is now known as popular music could be as prolific as Tim Buckley truly was. Not only was Buckley ahead of the field at almost every point in his career, he also managed to preserve the integrity for which all great artists are credited long after their (and in this case premature) passing. Anybody familiar with the work of this amazing individual could be excused for being sceptical of a collection which ignores (or at least glosses over) some of the triumphs born of his relentless need for experimentation. It's true, the heights and depths of Buckleys vocal expression best typified on the albums 'Lorca' and 'Starsailor' are not here, but that only serves to make what has been accomplished even more special. Because even though we are served with his most palletable offerings, this collection still completes the far reaching journey of a nine year career in which no two albums were even similar. It begins with five songs from a young Tim and an eponymous solo album drenched in the influence of folk singer Fred Neil. These are followed by six songs culled from what was Tims most commercial offering, 'Goodbye And Hello'. The trio of the beautiful 'Once I Was', the sublime 'Morning Glory' and the complex title track only touch the surface of Buckleys capabilities. The jump to the songs from 'Happy Sad' is enormous. Gone is the folk feel, replaced by a jazz mood typified by 'Buzzin Fly' and 'Strange Feeling'. However, the voice remains pure and strong as ever and leads directly into what are only the tip of the iceberg of Tims live recordings. The vocal bravery of these performances is only the start, and if you are touched in any way by them, just check out the three live albums currently available.Read more ›

Tim Buckley released 9 studio albums in his (all too brief) career. The way I see it is that there were 3 stages to his career:
the "learning stage" ("Tim Buckley" and "Goodbye and Hello"), which showed potential, especially in Goodbye and Hello, although both albums were a bit over-produced
the "good stage" ("Happy Sad" through to Starsailor"), where Tim came into his own and produced a run of excellent albums
the "he's lost it stage" ("Greetings from LA", "Sefronia" and "Look at the Fool"), where most of the stuff that he released paled in comparison to what went before, although there were still flashes of brilliance
I'm guessing a major problem with this compilation would be due to the fact that Tim's evolving style would have made it dificult to create a fluent album. Thankfully, Rhino have managed to compile something that flows from one track to the next quite well.
Another strong point of this compilation is that it contains songs from Tim's 2 currently unavailable albums (Blue Afternoon and Starsailor), which I also happen to think are his best. Kudos as well for including the version of "Song to the Siren" from the Monkees.
Wisely the "he's lost it" period songs are barely represented, but as with most other artist's compilations, there's gonna be people complaining about what has been missed out. And there have been some things which really should have been included here.
"I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain" and "Dream Letter", 2 songs wildly rumoured to be about his son Jeff and Jeff's mother, have been criminally omitted, as has "Down by the Borderline" from Starsailor, the best song he did not on here.

You don't necessarily need to have a Top 40 hit to fix yourself place in pop culture's firmament. Many artists who die prematurely have seen their stock continue to rise year on year. Think Nick Drake, Gram Parsons, and Jeff Buckley. Think also of the latter's much-mythologised, and very good-looking, father, Tim, dead at 28 of an accidental heroin overdose.

Between 1966 and 1974 this singer-songwriter, a tenor with a five-and-a-half octave range, released nine albums, and whizzed through a whole bunch of different genres - including folk, jazz, and R&B - in a recording career that was marked by critical praise, little commercial success, and a frustrating lack of consistency. That makes the assembly of a collection difficult without omitting much of the context of what made the singer special to generations of geeky rock critics and needy record shop staff. That point was proven by the 2006 re-release of The Best Of Tim Buckley. That career-spanning and broadly chronological collection struggled to sum up every turn in Buckley's artistic evolution in one almost CD-filling 75 minute package. There was no space amongst its 18 remastered songs for the likes of 'Buzzin' Fly', 'Blue Melody', 'Hong Kong Bar', or `Sweet Surrender'.

How does this double CD fare? Slightly better than that, as it includes all of the above amongst its 33 tracks. Over its generous running time of more than two-and-a-half hours it concentrates on his most accessible tunes, drawing most heavily from his earliest albums and shorter songs, pitching in a handful of late-'60s live recordings that were not released until long after his death.
