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 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 of the USA. 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):
1. I Can't See You
2. Wings
3. Song Of The Magician
4. Strange Street Affair Under Blue
5. Valentine Melody
6. Aren't You The Girl
7. Song Slowly Sung
8. It Happens Every Time
9. Song For Jainie
10. Grief In My Soul
11. She Is
12. Understand Your Man
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):
1. Put You Down
2. It Happens Every Time
3. Let Me Love You
4. I've Played That Game Before
5. She Is
6. Here I Am
7. Don't Look Back
8. Call Me If You Do
9. You Today
10. No More
11. Won't You Please Be My Woman
12. Come On Over
Tracks 1 to 12 are by THE BOHEMIANS (his first group) and are Demos recorded 8 November 1965 in Anaheim, California.

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR TIM BUCKLEY'S DELUXE DEBUT 2 CD RELEASE ***

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!

Tim Buckley's first album has often been damned with faint praise by critics who generally seem to have preferred the much more arranged "Goodbye and Hello", and the jazz inclined, "Happy Sad" or even the later more experimental ones. I've always seen this album as just one of the key bits of the psychedelic pattern that was in the air in the late 60's. Like "Electric Music for Mind & Body", the second Doors album, Love's "Da Capo", the first Floyd album, the first Quicksilver album, and a few more.

Whilst there are beautifully arranged strings in places (from Jack Nitzsche) there are also places in the album where the music just defines a mood and instruments gently extemporise behind Buckley's wandering vocal. At other times he ventures into rock territory, using that incredible voice as an instrument in its own right. There's no comparison to this music apart possibly from the sound of his own son, many, many, years later, though that was in some ways, quite different. And Tim was never to sound like this again on any of his later albums which makes this one unique.

I view this album as an absolute treasure regardless of what it was to lead to. I would quote the sleeve notes "His songs are exquisitely controlled, quiet, complex, mosaics of powerful electric sound, they hold the magic of Japanese water colours".

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!
