That's the way I remember reacting to this recording when I first heard it, back in 1966 - it's as stunning now as it was then. It's incredible that he was only 19 years old when he made it - the voice, the intelligence and emotion, the songwriting, are all what you would expect from a much older, more seasoned artist. Did I mention his voice? Of course I did - but that voice is one thing that set Tim apart from so many of his contemporaries (and from so many current artists as well). He had amazing control and an unbelievable range - he could soar upward and upward, seemingly without limits, without slipping into an obvious falsetto. The songs on this recording are a foreshadowing of the incredible work that was to come - and perhaps of the apogee that his creativity (and his life) attained too soon. Like all of his fans, I was crushed when he died in 1975 at 28.
The songs here - all written by Tim, or co-written with lyricist Larry Beckett - shine like diamonds. Recorded and released during the folk-rock era, the arrangements and instrumentation reflects that influence, but with an individuality and earnestness that raises them above the crowd. The opening lines of `Song of the magician' sum it up nicely: `When I sing, I can bring everything on the wind flying down from dizzy air...' Buckley's voice always had that power - and combined with some of the most beautifully poetic lyrics ever set to music, the songs on this album (and most of his subsequent releases), it's demonstrated again and again.
Highlights? Almost every song is a highlight, but my favorites are `I can't see you', `Wings', `Song of the magician', `Valentine melody', `Song slowly song', and `She is'.

Simply put, "Tim Buckley" is a spectacular album. It had an enourmous effect on me when I first bought it, nearly 40 years ago, and seeing it on CD is a joy almost beyond words. In my opinion, none of Tim's follow-up CDs can hold a candle to his first one. And that's not an easy thing to say, being a fan. If you appreciate songs of beauty and romance sung by someone with the voice of an angel, "Tim Buckley" is the record for you!

I am a Tim Buckley fans and I love "Tim Buckley" most. It's hard to imagine a 19years old guy can offer the world such a passionate, romantic and beautiful record. The lyrics are heart-telling and very poetic. "Wings", "Songs of the magician" and "It happens every time" are my all-time favourite. I would rate this album above "Goodbye and Hello", and this is one of the best record of the era.

As I said when I recently reviewed THE STONE PONEYS' late 60's albums, lately I've been listening to early folk-rock albums from that whole era. And that includes Tim Buckley. I know this 2 CD set has been reviewed, but I've noticed that the high price has come way down, making it a great bargain. Hopefully Buckley fans have picked this set up by now, but if you haven't, or don't know about this album, now's a good chance to pick it up. The songs float somewhere between 3 and 4 "stars" depending on each tune. Probably somewhere around 3 1/2 "stars" overall. But for being a unique artist in the short-lived folk-rock period (and maybe a bit of the dreaded nostalgia), I weighted everything closer to 4 "stars". You may hear otherwise. And I have to wonder-with record labels releasing box sets of (seemingly) everyone on their respective labels, where's Buckley's box set? Remastered albums in stereo and mono, unreleased studio tracks, demos, and live recordings, plus any other goodies they happen to find in the vaults. An in-depth booklet, nice presentation-somebody get on the ball and do it. This is one artist who's long overdue for the box set treatment.

This album seems to get overlooked in comparison to Buckley's other works, beginning with his second album, "Goodbye and Hello", into "Happy Sad" (which is now expensive to purchase new-a real crime) and so on. But it's nice to come back to this album and hear Buckley when he was first starting out. And with this album now in both stereo and mono, and an extra disc of songs from 1965 (before his first album) by his band THE BOHEMIANS, and some acoustic demos from 1966, this is hard to beat as far as a good look at early Tim Buckley.

I have to say that this album (especially) is of it's time.

There are those who call Tim Buckley's music 'magical' whilst others dismiss his Jazz style arrangements and vocal gymnastics as 'grating' or even 'nonsense'. I'm firmly in the first category (he was a bona-fide genius and true innovator). And despite its reputation as a good 'beginning' or lesser work (even amongst rabid fans) - I'd argue that there's genuine beauty to be rediscovered on his 1966 self-titled debut album "Tim Buckley" - reissued here in grand style and with great respect by Rhino Handmade of the USA. Here are the aural highs and lows...

USA released October 2011 (November in the UK) - Rhino Handmade/Elektra RHM2 526087 breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (69:37 minutes)
Tracks 1 to 12 are the STEREO version of his debut album "Tim Buckley" - released October 1966 in the USA on Elektra Records EKS-74040. Tracks 13 to 24 are the MONO Mix on Elektra Records EK-4040

Disc 2 is PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED (53:01 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are by THE BOHEMIANS (his first group) and are Demos recorded 8 November 1965 in Anaheim, California. The line up was: TIM BUCKLEY - Vocal and Rhythm Guitar, JIM FELDER - Bass, LARRY BECKET - Drums and BRIAN HARTZLER - Guitar.
Tracks 13 to 22 are ACOUSTIC DEMOS recorded during the summer of 1966 in Anaheim, California with Buckley on Vocals and Guitar. Larry Beckett provides Lead Vocals on two songs - "Found At The Scene Of A Rendezvous That Failed" and "Birth Day" while providing the Intro to "Song Slowly Song" (all other vocals Buckley).

The presentation is lovely. An over-sized outer card wrap (rustic cardboard effect) is held in place by a ribbon on the rear.
