Editorial Reviews

Unless you were one of the 35 people in the audience at the Folklore Center on March 6, 1967, then you haven't heard this-Tim Buckley at the dawn of his career, playing a set of 16 songs, six of which have never shown up on any Buckley album, whether live or studio! Indeed, this is the earliest live recording of Buckley that's surfaced, and it features, in the notes, an unpublished interview with promoter Izzy Young. In other words, a crucial, newly-discovered document from a legendary career! Includes I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain; Dolphins; No Man Can Find the War; Troubadour; Wings; Phantasmagoria in Two , and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD EARLY BUCKLEY August 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One disc 55 minutes in length approximately. The sound is very good,if slightly flat,which is a minor quibble. Considering this was recorded on a reel-to-reel tape recorder,in 1967,in the open air,the sound of Buckley's voice is full,his guitar sound ringing. Every nuance of his voice and guitar can be heard clearly. His voice at times soars,at other times its softly plaintive. His guitar is crisp no matter if he's picking individual notes or strumming full chords (something Buckley did to great effect and excitement) which give these songs a real fullness. Truly this is two instruments working and blending together to create a very powerful sound.

In 1967 (the late) Tim Buckley had already released his first album,TIM BUCKLEY. He was soon to release his second,GOODBYE AND HELLO the same year as this live recording. Stylistically,this new release fits somewhere between these two albums. Buckley had started out as a folk-singer,and started to get away from a traditional folk sound on his second album,and then pushed his vocals and arrangements closer to a jazz sound by the time his third album,HAPPY SAD,was released. This live concert is a bridge between those first two albums. His vocals are closer to his first album,while the guitar sound is closer to his second release,and Buckley performs here solo,with great emotion.

All the tunes except one,Fred Neil's "Dolphins",were written or co-written by Buckley. But what's important is that six of these tracks have never before been released on any previous live or studio album. All six tracks are good,substantial songs that fit in nicely with Buckley's more well known compositions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth picking up! April 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It feels like Tim Buckley is under-appreciated today. I wonder how many Jeff Buckley fans are familiar with Tim's work, Tim being the source of the genes that gave Jeff his amazing, groundbreaking singing voice.
The good news is that several live releases of Tim have come out posthumously. These do a great service to us, the listeners, because Tim could really put on an amazing live show, and the live discs are better listening than his studio albums.
This captures Tim early in his career, raw and stripped down to just guitar and vocals. The guitar isn't even a 12-string, which is unusual for Tim; it's 6 strings. He's steeped in his folk period, which is one of his most accessible artistic phases. There's no effects, it's mono, and the performance was not amplified in any way, but Tim's voice is powerful and clear over his strumming. There's a few songs you won't find anywhere else in his catalogue. It's amazing that this would surface so long after recording. It makes you wonder what else is out there.
This is, absolutely, my second favorite Tim Buckley CD, period. It's only surpassed by the live Dream Letter: Live in London 1968. But that one gets my vote for the best live folk CD of all time, so it's hard to beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Concert May 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This live concert is really very interesting and rare. The magic of this work is its simplicity of the sound. Of course it cannot compare with Dream Letter but it gives us a different aspect of Tim Buckley talent.
It is highly recommended to all Buckley's fans and not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic time-capsule of Tim Buckley 1967 November 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
When I saw this album the other day, I had no idea this even had been released (more than 42 years after the performance) and immediately snapped it up. What an incredible time-treasure this is, Tim Buckley in an acoustic performance in New York in early 1967.

"Tim Buckley Live at the Folklore Center, NYC - March 6, 1967 (16 tracks; 55 min.) brings the performance of then 20 yr. old Tim Buckley, just him and his acoustic guitar, in an intimate setting (about 35 people in the audience--more on that later). The owner of the Folklore Center, Izzy Young, had the presence of mind to ask Tim if he minded if he (Izzy) taped the show, Tim didn't mind, and so Izzy recorded this with a 1/4-inch recorder and a single mike. Despite these primitive recording tools, the results are nothing short of amazing, it's like Tim is sitting in your room playing these songs (no hiss to speak off). The highlights are many, check out the opener "Song for Jainie" where Tim attacks his guitar and brings the song with a heartfelt passion, but that is true for many other songs as well. While this recording contains a number of well-known Tim Buckley songs (check out the biting rendition of "No Man Can Find The War"), it also contains a mesmorizing 6 preformances from Tim never heard before, "Just Please Leave Me", "What Do You Do (He Never Saw You"), "Cripples Cry", "If The Rains Comes", "Country Boy" and "I Can't Leave You Loving Me". Amazing.

In all this is a MUST HAVE for any Tim Buckley fan, and frankly for any fan of music history. To have this recording preserved and now finally available after 42 years just blows the mind. The liner notes from Izzy Young are indispensable and bring a tremendous insight how this show came about and how it turned out (it's Izzy who informs us that there were about 35 people in attendance). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL
Young Tim Buckley. What could be better? It's his essence, before the strings. overproduction, and life disruptions.
His 1967 purity is still a beacon.
