Tim Buckley

Tim will always be remembered as a marvellous singer and a sensitive composer. He emerged from the late-sixties californian folk-rock scene with a unique approach, and his restless talent lead him to arrange his touching songs in a very peculiar way, maybe closer to avantgarde jazz.
He died in the summer of '75 and he is probably more famous now, after that his son Jeff, also very talented singer, skimmed the great success that he never reached. As everybody knows Jeff too died sadly at a very young age. It might seem rethorical, but it's easy to imagine that they are both still singing somewhere, with their angelic voices.
These footages where both shooted for the BBC, in different phases of Tim's career: the first in '68 for the Late Night Late Up program, and the second, a performance of the beautiful Fred Neil's song Dolphins, at the Grey Old Whistle Test on '74.

Caro Mirco, como é bom ver o "Tim" por aqui; que artista iluminado, sensível e com uma obra musical fenomenal; não posso deixar de citar seu companheiro "Lee". Parabéns, você é do mesmo nível de todos estes músicos. Abraço.
Denis, Brasil.

WoW - great stuff. A must for every Buckley fan, Tim or Jeff!

And I can't wait to see The Seeds vid too (plus others). These historical vids are just amazing.

Whilst I've been a long time Vinyl/CD collector, I've never had the time to delve into vids.

So pleased I've found you here with this great collection.

Your efforts are well appreciated.

Cheers!!!
