About the Artist

After the release of the entire catalogue of The Son (Jeff) on Music On Vinyl, it's now time for The Father (Tim). Although they just met once, it is pretty clear that both were gifted with The Holy Spirit, being incredibly talented singers and musicians. This self-titled work is Tim's debut album, originally released in 1966. Most of the songs were co-written by Buckley and Larry Beckett while still in high school. It also features lifelong friend and collaborator Lee Underwood as well as Van Dyke Parks. This mostly folk oriented album was the start of a incredibly versatile career in which he later incorporated Jazz, Psychedelia, Funk, Soul and Avant-garde.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't care what some say - this is a great album 7 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
Wow, so glad to read the other reviews, I highly agree that this album is a gem. The melodies are strong, I love to happily drown myself emotionally in these tunes. Poignancy abounds as well, especially after reading the book on his and his son's lives; "Blood Brothers" I think it's called. He was young and just starting his career, and there's that sense of romantic youthfulness, and hope, and emotionality in regards to his relationships with his young wife (also evidenced in his song "I never asked to be your mountain" on Hello/Goodbye), and his later girlfriend Jane.
I am currently addicted to it, and the songs play in my head every day. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Respect At Last! 3 Dec 2011
By G H
Format:Audio CD

At last! Congratulations, Rhino Records, this lavishly packaged edition of Tim Buckley's first album is an absolute stunner. The Stereo mix is gorgeous but the Mono mix is a revelation. The second disc is also a revelation, showing us where it all started. I believe that Tim's second album, 'Goodbye And Hello' is also going to get the same treatment. Perhaps the incendiary 1970 Starsailor Band Concerts will also soon see the light of day, but this Deluxe Edition will do nicely for now. Very nicely! So if you want to hear the best voice of the twentieth century, and to date this century too, then this is the place to start. I love Music, all kinds of Music, whatever label we humans care to put on it, it is all Music, and I have never heard anyone sing as great as this guy could sing. So be good to your soul, heart, psyche, ears, and of course your lover, and just listen. Here is a good place to start, but all of his Music will blow you away one way or another. Oh, and please stop calling Tim's Music folk or folk rock or jazz rock or sex funk or avante garde. Tim Buckley's Music is all of these things and much much more. Just listen with an open mind and an open heart and you will see and hear what I mean. True!

There are those who call Tim Buckley's music 'magical' whilst others dismiss his Jazz style arrangements and vocal gymnastics as 'grating' or even 'nonsense'. I'm firmly in the first category (he was a bona fide 5-star genius and true innovator). And despite its reputation as a good 'beginning' or lesser work (even amongst rabid fans) - I'd argue that there's genuine beauty to be rediscovered on his 1966 self-titled debut album "Tim Buckley" - reissued here in grand style and with great respect by Rhino Handmade. Here are the aural highs and lows...

USA released October 2011 (November in the UK) - Rhino Handmade/Elektra RHM2 526087 breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (69:37 minutes)
Tracks 1 to 12 are the STEREO version of his debut album "Tim Buckley" - released October 1966 in the USA on Elektra Records EKS-74040. Tracks 13 to 24 are the MONO Mix on Elektra Records EK-4040

Disc 2 is PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED (53:01 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are by THE BOHEMIANS (his first group) and are Demos recorded 8 November 1965 in Anaheim, California. The line up was: TIM BUCKLEY - Vocal and Rhythm Guitar, JIM FELDER - Bass, LARRY BECKET - Drums and BRIAN HARTZLER - Guitar.
Tracks 13 to 22 are ACOUSTIC DEMOS recorded during the summer of 1966 in Anaheim, California with Buckley on Vocals and Guitar. Larry Beckett provides Lead Vocals on two songs - "Found At The Scene Of A Rendezvous That Failed" and "Birth Day" while providing the Intro to "Song Slowly Song" (all other vocals Buckley).

The presentation is lovely. An over-sized outer card wrap (rustic cardboard effect) is held in place by a ribbon on the rear.
