By C. O'Brien VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
With the success of everyone from James Yorkston to James Blunt, it's plain that the acoustic troubadour is back in style. That alone may be the reason for this new collection of remastered tracks. However, Buckley was a complex artist who was little understood in his own era, so perhaps the time is simply ripe for the kind of reappraisal which 2001's double-disc set Morning Glory failed to spark.

Unlike his celebrated but doomed son Jeff, Buckley Snr was a prolific artist who put out no less than nine albums in an eight-year career. The first two - 1966's Tim Buckley and 1967's Goodbye and Hello - presented him as a folk-rock artist. They showcased his rich, flexible Irish tenor in songs of love and disappointment, although as with much of Scott Walker's early solo work, the arrangements have dated badly. Seven out of the eighteen tracks collected here are from these two albums, with only one (Strange Feelin') from the third, jazz-inflected outing Happy Sad. That album's famous track Sing A Song For You is also here - but in an alternative take previously included on rarities album Works In Progress.
The somewhat lacklustre Blue Afternoon from 1969 is better represented, but arguably Buckley's masterpieces - the soaring avant-garde outings Lorca and Starsailor on which much of his restored reputation now rests - are represented by just one track apiece, I Had A Talk With My Woman and the sublime Song To The Siren. This is inexplicable, especially as the compilation peters out depressingly with four tracks from his last three R&B albums - deliberately commercial work which many of his fans prefer to forget.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly a best of! 6 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was hoping this would do what it says on the tin, but it's not my idea of a Best of TB. No Buzzin'Fly, no Blue Melody, no Hong Kong Bar, no Sweet Surrender for a start, and it seems odd to prefer tracks off his pretty average final albums Sefronia and Look at the Fool over Starsailor. A weedy portrait of a major talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Buckley 16 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you like this style of music then you will not be disappointed. If you want to use it as an introduction to the Buckley music then you may find it a little difficult to get into.
