This documentary reviews the music and career of one of America’s most influential artists, composers and vocalists. Tim Buckley is as relevant today as he ever was and his original brand of music – incorporating folk, jazz, funk, blues and all manner of other genres – made for as unique a style as any contemporary artist has ever accomplished. It features musical performances by Tim Buckley reviewed and re-assessed by a team of esteemed experts, obscure footage and rarely seen photographs of Tim, and brand new and exclusive interviews with the people who knew Buckley the best.

My main gripe is some misinformation in the form of the "Song of the Siren" being played in the context of the "Starsailor" LP is actually from the "Works on Progress" recorded a couple of years before, more akin to the Monkees TV version. If you haven't heard the "Starsailor" LP version, this won't make any contextual sense based on the onscreen discussion.
Also, I like the interactive quiz extra, but find it hilarious that the question asking for the state where TB did his last show gives among its answers "Dallas" and "Texas", and "Dallas" is the right answer. I guess this is based on the TV show "Dallas" being big in the UK. Texas is the state where Dallas is located, yew non-Marcans...
This is a nice item, though, based on the relative dearth of TB product. Hopefully, between the Folklore Center CD, "Fleeting House" DVD, and the recent release of half of the lost 1967 single on the "Where the Action Is" set, some more TB will be unearthed.
Beware, though, the TB Archives people on the Internet think this DVD is illegal:
