I was never privileged to hear Tim Buckley perform live (the one chance I had, and missed, turned out to be the last show he ever played) - I've been a fan since I heard his first album in 1966, and I've marveled at the changes and growth his art undertook over the years. His incredible intellect and yearning for exploration and expansion sometimes left fans behind - but those left in the dust were usually those who weren't willing to take the leap of faith he asked of them with his music. The ones who hung in there were in for the musical journey of a lifetime.
This album surfaced several years after Tim's untimely death - and it's a sparkling jewel that reflects the bright spark that was Buckley's creative spirit. The songs here are from GOODBYE AND HELLO (1967), HAPPY SAD (1969), LORCA (1970), BLUE AFTERNOON (1970), a great live version of Fred Neil's `Dolphins' (a cornerstone of many of Tim's live shows, which finally appeared on SEFRONIA (1973), and several tunes that were never recorded elsewhere. Stylistically, most of the concert leans toward the HAPPY SAD and BLUE AFTERNOON studio recordings, but with the freedom to improvise much greater here than in the confines of a recording studio. The mix of songs from various albums is a treat - especially hearing the solo versions of some tunes, and the jazzy (a la HAPPY SAD and BLUE AFTERNOON) treatments of some of the ones originally given more straight-ahead `folk-rock' arrangements on GOODBYE AND HELLO.

I'd say yes. Most live records are little more than souvenirs for converted fans. "Dream Letter" is something else entirely: the single finest piece of product you can buy with Tim Buckley's name on it, whether you're a newcomer or a longtime fanantic. Stylistically, it splits the difference between the "Goodbye & Hello" and "Happy Sad" albums, but it's superior to both. The song selection is wonderful, Tim's voice is in full, soaring form and the band--including the great British bassist Danny Thompson--are beautifully in tune with Buckley's muse. It's so gorgeous and essential that it just about demolishes me every time I play it. You really, really, really need to hear this.

I "discovered" Tim Buckley only after hearing his sad and beautiful voice on the song "Once I Was" during the closing scene of the film "Coming Home." By that time, Buckley's music was hard to find, and many hours were spent in used record stores searching for anything available.
Thankfully, many of his recordings were later released on CD, including this tour de force of the young and extraordinarily gifted singer mesmerizing an audience in London.
Tim Buckley was an artist whose style was as broad as his vocal range. This is a jazz concert, a folk concert, a rock concert, and at times all three styles were evident within a single song.
Buckley is a prime example of the voice being an instrument, of the belief that these sounds were coming from an otherworldly source and Tim was merely the medium through whom they passed. Nobody could possibly sing the way he did.
His playfulness and his free form stream-of-conscienceness permeate the songs. Every track is excellent. "Buzzin' Fly," "Once I Was," and "Dolphins" are standouts. This is an experience not to be missed.
The backing band is solid, but in truth, Tim Buckley probably could have performed a capella and created a sound nearly as full.
This is a "must have" for any true fan of great music.

When you listen to this album it's hard to listen to any other singer for a while. Not only does Tim Buckley have a fantastic, almost unbelievable range, but he is heart-breakingly fearless in his use of it. He uses his voice as an instrument like no singer I have ever heard, and he has a what-the-hell-let's-try-it approach,experimental as a jazz musician. Quite an interesting and unique lyricist as well; hard to believe he's 19 years old in this concert. His sound is sometimes so passionate and so beautiful - for example in the final medley (you keep me hanging on)- that I swear he is in direct contact with a divine power.This album will change your beliefs about what the human voice is capable of doing. Thank god for Tim Buckley and whoever recorded this concert, as he's so much better live! (The liner notes for this album provide an excellent introduction and background on TB's career.)

'Dream Letter' finds Buckley in majestic form and is a crystalline live recording, issued long after his unfortunate premature death. Buckley's tenor voice is too tough, too lived in to be regarded as angelic.Simply, his entry into my world was a stunning, uplifting shock. I bought all his albums and was surprised at each station he paused at. He had no peers. And none followed, until the uncanny emergence of his son. Inevitably, most listeners coming to Buckley will do so through the filter of his son, Jeff, who also died prematurely through misadventure. Lee Underwood, (who plays here and on all the early Tim discs)who's written an affectionate biography of Tim provides the liner notes for this astounding concert - given that the artist was a mere 21. In his book, Underwood is dismissive of the son and a sense of acrimony attends his remarks. Comparisons between father and son continue, given the dark echoing of their fates. Tim, of course, has left more record of his prodigious gifts and, thus,is the more 'resolved' artist. I feel more drawn into his work, more transported. The reworking of songs from the epigymous debut album and from 'Hello/Goodbye' are brilliant, as is the take on 'Dolphins'which would eventually find its way onto 'Sefronia'. The Civil War ballad,'Wayfaring Stranger' is given ecstatic treatment, an apotheosis compared with 'Sixteen Horsepowers' on'Secret South' or Kev Russell's secular version on 'Junker'(to cite two recent takes).Later, his brush with Lorca and Kafka would yield the depths of 'Blue Afternoon', whose 'River' is permanently etched in my mind. My leaning for the later work is towards the funky sexuality of,'Greetings From LA'.

Question about liner notes
My liner copy's notes are in correct order. I note that if the double paged sheet containing pages 2-4 is flipped over, you would get the sequence you indicate.
