Many Thanks, Rhino and Music Club, I don't know who you got in to do the remastering on this wonderful two disc compilation as the sleeve notes are a bit sparse and they contain a few glaring innaccuracies but the sound quality is superb on every track. It has taken a long time to do this incredible artist justice on the digital front but we are finally getting there. Every song now sounds almost as deep and as high as the vinyl records ever did. Truly spellbinding stuff. Spare ten minutes of your precious time and listen to the remastered 'Lorca', nobody else sings that good, nobody! Now we can look forward to all of the best ever Singer-Songwriter's Music, Tim Buckley of course, to be released on CD, including the 1970 Starsailor Band Concerts and that 1967 Gem 'Lady Give Me Your Key'. Make it soon though, we ain't any of us getting any younger

Crikey. I've had Tim Buckley's entire catalogue on vinyl and then CD since the mid-eighties, so on seeing this had been released, I wasn't that excited, as a similar double-CD compilation ("Morning Glory") appeared on Rhino about ten years ago. However, this one looked like a better one-stop shop than the earlier set, making it the optimal (inexpensive, well-selected) choice for in-car entertainment and the like. Convenient, but not especially thrilling.

Then I played it, as said in-car entertainment, for the first time, and it's a miracle I didn't crash the motor right off. "Jaw-dropping" doesn't come close: the sound quality is so much improved, compared to any previous vinyl or CD incarnation I've heard, that it's like hearing the music for the first time. As a result, while "Goodbye and Hello" is as (admirably) preposterous a conceit as ever, the detail and texture of the arrangement is a revelation, while the clarity of tracks from "Lorca" and "Starsailor" is so great it's like they've just emerged from a decades-long fog, and this clarity makes it much easier to work out what Buckley was up to without in anyway diminishing their ambition and daring. And if, like me, you've long suspected that Lee Underwood's lead guitar on "Buzzin' Fly" is the single most rapturously lovely sound in popular music, you won't believe your ears.

Which means that (a) even if you've got all these songs already you owe it to yourself to hear them in these splendid remasters and (b) if you are new to Tim Buckley and looking for a good jumping-on point, look no further.

Verified Purchase
Embarassingly, I'd heard little of Tim Buckley before I read the reviews here, and I'm usually cautious enough to listen to samples before buying. However,the praise was so unanimous and so glowing, I threw caution to the wind, and invested a whole 3 on this superb double album.

As others mention, sound quality is excellent. Given that the tracks here are either late 60's or early 70's, the richness and orginality of the production is up there with the luscious sound world of later Kate Bush material, which is truly astonishing. The bulk of the selections are culled from Buckley's albums, from his 'Debut' in 1966 to 'Greetings from LA' in 1972, with a generous handful of tracks from most albums, especially 'Starsailor', though 'Lorca' only manages two songs.

As soon as the first chords of the lustrous 'Song to the Siren', the first track here, reach your ears, you know you're in for an astonishingly melodic journey, and the sophistication of the songs from 'Debut', which come in a cluster on CD2, is incredible for '66, especially the hesitantly haunting 'Song Slowly Sung'. Although, so far, perhaps my favourite selections are from 'Blue Afternoon', including the magnificent 'Chase the Blues Away', the rich variety of material from 'Starsailor' is jaw-dropping.

It's early days yet for me, and my journey through this wonderfully generous selection (each cd is just shy of 80 mins.) is far from complete. However, I'd just like to express my gratitude to all the reviewers here, who introduced me to a wonderfully ranging, rich voice, and a truly superb collection of warmly melodic, highly original material. Given the price here, you can plunge in safely. Grab this wonderful bargain while it remains at this price (though it would still be a fine bargain at double this), and immerse yourself in the haunting sound-world of this classic anthology.

Reviewers have commented on the sound quality of this CD and I have to agree, it's hard to believe you're listening to recordings from the late 60s to early 70s, such is the clarity and immediacy of the production. The guitar riff of Monterey just leaps out of the speakers, while Song to the Siren resonates with tremendous depth, and the bluesy arrangements of Strange Feelin', Chase the Blues Away and Blue Melody really shine. But the thing that links together the wide variety of musical styles in this collection is of course Tim Buckley's incredible voice, presented here with such fidelity that you can't help but share the agony of the pleading that ends I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain, or the ecstasy of Make It Right, or the tenderness of Once I Was and Dream Letter. And that's before you come to the pyrotechnics of Lorca and the Starsailor tracks... I fear it'll be a long time before I hear another collection of songs that I rate as highly as these.

The track ordering works well musically, but is rather random chronologically, so it can be difficult to follow the arc of Buckley's career, though you can always resequence the tracks through a playlist.
