Starsailor

Today Music For Your Eyes offers a full concert that Tim Buckley performed in 1970 for a program called Boboquivari, on the Los Angeles TV channel KCET.
In those days he was at the peak of the most experimental phase of his career, four of the six songs he played are included on his mysterious and touching masterpiece Starsailor. Unfortunately this record is out of print now.
Tim is accompanied by a band of four musicians, including a trumpet player, that leads us into strange territories, closer to free jazz than to folk-rock. Tim himself uses his extraordinary voice as an instrument.
This is the tracklist:

1) I Woke Up
2) Come Here Woman
3) Blue Melody
4) Moulin Rouge
5) Venice Beach
6) Jungle Fire

The songs are played with no interruptions, as one long suite.
I have converted this 27 minutes video into a 160 Mb DivX file, and splitted it in two parts with WinRAR.
Unzip this archive to know how to download it.

Ti ringrazio mille. Fucking awesome. I've been looking for this (but not known the name to look for) for 15 years since I heard rumours of its existence. Wonderful to hear live performances of material from his very greatest album (and probably the greatest album I know, full stop). Presumably that's Buzz Thingummy on trumpet, his work on the LP is so beautiful it's the icing on the cake to hear him him. Only a shame that Starsailor itself couldn't be done live! I can't thank you enough. Ciao ragazzo.

Hi, thank you all, the quality of this video isn't great but it's precious document indeed.
I know Keef Hartley played at the Beat Club in June '69, so maybe someone has the clip, though I haven't seen it yet.

Nice, but there is NO such word as 'splitted'. It is the word 'split', used as verb or past tense or whatever (use the word 'divided' if your grammar is that poor!). 'Splitted' is not an actual word and looks faintly obscene anyway. It you cut a log in two, it's not 'splitted', but it has been split in two. "Splitted', 'broadcasted'...how weird. The internet must be loaded with illiterates.

I'm Italian, try to speak my language and then we'll see who's the illiterate.
Fuck you! (is it correct?)
