This 2 CD set is an out of print collectible! It is the original 1990 release in the fat double jewel case. Still sealed.

Customer Reviews

This is a "must have" for any true fan of great music.
"craig_paul"
The song selection covers all of his styles and all performed in a very intimate atmosphere and with remarkably good quality sound given the age of the recording.
M. A. Stevens
Not only do you get the power felt from the audience, you also can feel your own heart pounding to this voice of an Angel, that is Tim Buckley.

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.)

I first encountered Tim Buckley when I was in High School--maybe a freshman, in about '65 or'66. Believe it or not, he did a guest bit at the end of "The Monkees" one night. I can't recall the song, but I do recall the performance. Buckley got inside of the performance more than anyone I had ever seen. He became the song. His concentration was intense. I somehow found his recordings, and collected all of them as they were released--no mean task in Lynchburg, VA in the early '60s.
I actually got to see him perform at the Mosque in Richmond VA in about '71 or '72. He was the warm-up act for a Zappa (sans Mothers) concert. Zappa was fine, but Buckley was stellar. It was shortly after the "Letter from LA" recording, and his vocal acrobatics were amazing.
Then he died. In about '89 I stumbled upon "Dream Letter," and is was just that for me. It came from out of my past, but it still had a freshness and originality about it that is stunning. The guitar work is wonderful--both lead and rhythm. Lee Underwood was an excellant guitarist, who accented much of what Buckley sang. His liner notes are quite insightful, as well. As a bassist, I thoroughly enjoy listening to Danny Thompson, who was in The Pentangle at that time, falling in with unfamiliar material. I've played pick up gigs quite a bit, and Thompson covered the gig very well.
The most remarkable song, to me, on the album is "Wayfaring Stranger." I listened to it just the other day, and I was mesmerized. Once again, Buckley's commitment to performing his material is what came through for me, after all of these years.
The only problem I have with the recording is the tuning. I'm a stickler for tuning, but on the other hand, Buckley was wailing the hell out of all 12 strings of his guitar. Buy this CD--you won't regret it.

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.
