I come at this totally fresh. I have never listened to another Tim Buckley album and don't come at this with any genre bias either. So hopefully this will help you make a choice without all the baggage...
I recently bought the CD due a recommendation from some magazine or another's "Best Ever Albums" lists. I thought I'd give it a whirl. I played it four times in a row, feeling totally and utterly blown away. That does not happen often.
Let's get one thing straight - This record is not funk. This record is something else entirely. It is nothing short of a genius weaving together the sleeze of the Stones, the funk of Sly Stone, the darkness of the Doors, the soul of Wilson Picket, the blues of Floyd Dixon etc al..the list is endless. It is an outrageous show of musical and vocal talent that comes together in lush, multi-layered, fabulous, infectious, top-tapping, life affirming, dirty, bluesy, funky, rock, soul smorgas board.
Sounds unique? Yes. That's because it is almost without comparison. It reminds you of lots of things and of nothing you've ever heard before.
Buy the ticket. Take the ride. Luxuriate in it. This is one very, very special album.
The music is close to the final statements of any worth made by the Rolling Stones, 'Sticky Fingers' & 'Exile on Main St'. Also, it is not far from the 70's albums of Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye's 'Trouble Man' or Curtis Mayfield's 'Back to the World' or the Baby Huey album or 'Thank you Friends' by Big Star etc...'Move with Me' & 'Get on Top' sound as alive as anything- going off on percussive & vocal tangents that Buckley had explored in his experimental stage. 'Sweet Surrender' is a divine ballad, an ode to sexual exposure, & reminds me of the best Led Zep (III & Physical Graffiti). 'Nighhawkin' is a sleazy tale of Tim's life as an LA taxi driver (possibly a myth)- and the guitars at the conclusion sound like Happy Mondays 'Kinky Afro'! The album continues in this vein, right up to the final track, 'Make it Right', which espouses the joys of sado-masochism!!!!
This is a great album- the ideal party music. The sound of summer & sleaze combined with the LA smog...His last classic & who could reject any album which featured the lines: "gonna beat me, whip me, spank me, oh make it right again"?
Up there with 'On the Beach' & 'Young Americans'- or closer to 'white soul'!
So given these circumstances the sheer majesty of 1972's Jerry Golstien produced 'Greetings from LA was startling.
On 'Sweet Surrender' Buckley yelps, moans and screams, stretching out over his massive five and a half octave range he delivers one of the most erotic vocal performances ever, leaving the listener breathless as the final notes fade away. 'Hong Kong Bar' is taken at a more sedate pace but still oozes sex in every note. The scorching 'Get On Top of Me Woman' and 'Move with Me' could not have been sung by anyone else and have the potent fire they possess.
Sadly niether 73's 'Sefronia' and 74's poignantly sad 'Look At The Fool'would touch live up to the awesome promise of 'Greetings From LA'
Highly recomended along with 'Happy / Sad' 'Blue Afternoon' 'Starsailor' & the starl beauty of 'Lorca'
Personally, if you are looking for Buckley's most moving and erotic music, I would seek out a copy of Blue Afternoon. This album is hard to find, but the music is heady in a less obvious way to Greetings from LA. Buckley is sensual rather than outright sexual and the overall result is a deeper reward to a listener's heart and soul. Find it and enjoy.
But Greetings from LA is an amazing ride....

... so when husband bought this was very pleasantly surprised.
Lovely voice, understand this is the best of his albums.
sexual emotion flows from this album - if you've never heard it you're missing a treat - a little raunchy to share with the younger generationPublished on 26 Jan. 2013 by Jonathon Williams
Nobody was quite prepared for Tim`s 7th album, but then who was/is ready for the wayward keenings of its predecessor, Starsailor? Read morePublished on 24 Sept. 2010 by KaleHawkwood
