Editorial Reviews

One of the most talented singer/songwriters of the late 1960s/early 1970s, Tim Buckley took the experimentation of the times to new musical heights, his all-too-brief career dazzling listeners with masterful mixtures of folk, psychedelia, jazz, avant garde, and funk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime Bliss! December 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tim Buckley's Works in Progress CD starts with floating Danang (fragment from Love from Room 109 from Happy Sad album) and seamlessly slips into a beautiful rendition of Sing a Song for You. Alternate versions of already available tracks on previously available 9 studio albums such as Buzzin' Fly (two versions), Song to the Siren, Sing a song for You (two versions), Happy Time, Chase the Blues Away and Dream Letter provide Buckley's afficionados with beautiful insights. Sounds quality is great (given the limitations of the reel recordings which were uncovered after decades) and hey this is Tim Buckley - sound quality does not matter - it is the music that just lifts your spirits soaring high in the skies.
Kudos to Rhino Handmade for relasing this gem! Message for the Rhino Execs - Fans are waiting with baited breaths for Blue Afternoon and Starsailor - two missing gems from Rhino catalog to surface sooner than later (till then the only hope is ebay for used copies of these albums - ranging anywhere from $65 to $100 for used CDs). Classics lost in time! Till then, just enjoy this beautiful collection of lost gems, georgeous booklet in high quality paper with lyrics and brilliant liner notes by Lee Underwood!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tim Buckley must-have October 3, 2007
By Angela
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are as much as a casual fan of Tim Buckley, I can highly recommend you get this album, even if you already have all several of his proper records and Dream Letter: Live in London 1968 (another must-have).

This CD is a wonderful and unique listening experience: the recording sessions fell into the period in which Tim produced many of his most popular and most melodic songs. The singing here is for the most soulful and gentle, and the ocassional studio banter lends this album an additional sense of initimacy.

If you own some of the studio albums and the live CD, this album will be a worthy addition to your collection. This is also your chance to own a rare studio version of 'Wayfaring Stranger'.

You also get the booklet with lyrics and extensive liner notes by Tim's guitarist Lee Underwood providing an in-depth discussion of the songs and giving valuable insights into where Tim stood creatively at the time of these sessions.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, intense, meaningful January 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Although Tim Buckley was never as commercially accessible as his late-1960's peers, his beautifully sculpted recordings fill a brooding, painful niche that supercedes the superficiality of artists such as James Taylor and Carole King, and the bludgeoning excesses of the emerging heavy metal artists such as Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. These particular recordings, not discovered until the 1990's, add to Buckley's legacy as one of the stellar vocalists and songwriters of the era.

Tim Buckley can be a difficult artist to listen to. The personal demons that haunted the performer drove him into a period of drug abuse that culminated in his untimely 1975 death. Those demons are frequently on display in Buckley's own compositions, and on 'Works In Progress', a major emotional crisis claims tracks thirteen through fifteen, laying down thoughts such as "Listen darling to my empty prayers" ('Dream Letter'), and on 'Father Song', "Oh tell me Father, is there shame in your heart for me... why do you curse the day I was born"? Fortunately, the disc finishes with a vibrant, toe-tapping instrumental ('Fiddler') featuring the strongest drumbeat in the set.

There are lighter moments on the disc, in particular two versions of one of my favorite Buckley compositions, 'Buzzin' Fly', featuring lyrics like "I wanna know everything about you, Darlin'...what makes you smile, what makes you wild...". The track 3 version weaves Lee Underwood's smooth electric lead guitar through Buckley's vocals, while the tauter take on track nine finds Underwood's instrument sharper and well-defined. Lighter fare can also be found on the delicate invitation to romance that is 'Hi Lily, Hi Lo' ("Come and dance and dance a while with me...
