Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Before Tim Buckley got carried away with jazz rhythms in the '70s, he made profoundly moving folk-rock albums that showcased his stunning vocal range, thoughtful lyrics, and penchant for occasionally imbuing tracks with surprisingly soulful, non-blue-eyed grooves and infectious jangle-pop melodies. Goodbye and Hello, his second album (recorded in 1967 when he was only 20), runs the gamut. Here Buckley hints at the sensual howl that would blossom in the '70s ("I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain," "Pleasant Street," "Hallucinations"). While he goes into hippie-poet-deep-thinker mode on a few songs, the excellent folk-soul tracks win out. --Lorry Fleming

4.0 out of 5 stars On the Way... January 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
A prologue, to offer the novice Buckley-buyer some thoughts. Buckley the man and the artist was on the edge, his art a way out of his own skin, and he found peace in neither. In retrospect, destiny's path for an emotionally traumatized teenager possessed of great intelligence, a seeker's spirit and a voice the likes of which has probably seldom been heard on this earth, could not have been kind and led him toward balance and contentment, artistic or personal. The oft-derided last three albums of sex-obsessed R&B, full of celebration, still hid poetry, surprisingly good music and the pleas of a man feeling lost and looking for meaning, love and a home, amongst the funky-rhumba posturing, whisky swilling growls and a more seductive, soul-tinged croon. Sefronia, full of radio funk yet somehow still a good listen, has a title track whose melody and vocal interpretation stand with his best, and lyrics that, while derivative and cryptic, are evocative; Dolphins, over-produced to an enamel shine, still pulls at the heart and is sung powerfully and with a mature passion; this cover of the Fred Neil peace plea was part of Tim's early live set; the chorus of "Quicksand" is a gem set in tin. On his last, unfairly ridiculed album, Look at the Fool, after singing "I can't live without your loving me at night" like an imitation of Al Green, he sings passionately then gently, "I run into the sea, but the sea only sighs, look at the fool that love brings me". The hopeless poet of years before can't even stay away from an enjoyable funk album. You can hear the desperation. By 28 he was dead of an accidental overdose of a drug he had supposedly given up. Some friends reportedly predicted that he was self-destructing and fast, and the writing had been on the wall all along. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A LIGHT FROM THE 60s THAT STILL SHINES BRIGHTLY... January 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There's no denying that some of the lyrics on this album apply specifically to the incredible era that was the 1960s - but have the values and beliefs they espoused so vibrantly faded into nonexistence? I don't think so. Emphasis shifts, forms of expression change - but the things about which Tim Buckley sang so eloquently on this recording are eternal: war and peace (both internal and external); love and loneliness; the strife that is born between generations. The 60s era was full of bands and songwriters wrestling with these subjects, striving to help us all deal with them - and more than a few who tagged along for the ride with the hope of making a buck out of the movements that arose around them. Buckley - and his (then-) lyricist Larry Beckett were, as artists, reaching desperately and honestly for something higher, not for any accolades that might come their way as a result, but to latch onto something they could use to pull themselves (and the rest of us) up to a higher level. Tim Buckley succeeded in this more than most of his contemporaries.
The musicianship on the album is superb. Buckley has moved to a 12-string acoustic guitar, the instrument which was soon to become his main choice. Lee Underwood is along on lead guitar - and I can't say too much about Lee's contributions to Tim's music (and his life - he was one of Buckley's closest friends). Carter C. C. Collins makes his first recorded appearance on congas - another musician who would become a close friend to Buckley, as well as a frequent, welcome accompanist. Jim Fielder is along on bass on some of the tracks. Most of the rest of the musicians, while talented, are studio players brought into the recording by producer Jerry Yester - Elektra recognized Tim's potential, and wanted a fairly slick, commercial recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album from the Best 60's Folk Artist February 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge Buckley fan and "Goodbye..." is my favorite of his albums. It blends perfectly his variety of writing & vocal talents. It has dramatic songs (I Never Asked to Be your Mountain, Goodbye & Hello, Once I Was) that showcase his emotional lyric writing and vocal style. It also has pop songs (Phantasamagoria in Two, Pleasant Street, Morning Glory) that really make you wonder why he wasn't a huge commercial success. I have a large collection of music, over 500 CDs ranging from 60's folk to 90's alternative. This is the one CD I have listened to more than any other and in my opinion is one of the best ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tim Buckley's second album and the real start of it all November 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
GOODBYE AND HELLO was Tim Buckley's second album, recorded in 1967. It marks a transition from the label-decided teen folk of his first, eponymously titled album and the enormous creativity and independence of his later albums. GOODBYE AND HELLO shows Buckley cutting loose of label restraits with 10 solid folk rock songs that foreshadow his later moves into free-form jazz and soul. The result is a fantastic album, with great production.
The first song "No Man Can Find the War" opens with sounds of bombs and explores the Vietnam conflict from several gruesome perspectives. The listener is reminded of the tragic reality that the war went on for 8 more years after this song. "Pleasant Street" is usually ranked as one of Buckley's best songs, his screaming, stunning vocals are backed by a pandemonium of electric guitar and drums. The fifth track "I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain" is similar, a long jam that feature's incredible vocal acrobatics. The closing track "Morning Glory" came to be the most publicly recognized of Buckley's songs, but it's far from his best. This well-sung tale of an encounter between a college student and a hobo entertains, but Buckley despised the song after he had moved on to more substantial music, and any listener who has heard his masterpiece STARSAILOR would too.
The album isn't perfect, "Knight-Errant" and "Goodbye and Hello" are duds. The first is an medieval minstrel-ish track that annoyed me from the first few notes. "Goodbye and Hello" has excellent music, but Buckley's early lyricist Larry Beckett came up with some terrible lines for him to sing.
For those who like this album, the essential thing to get next is DREAM LETTER: Live in London 1968.
