86. Tim Buckley - Goodbye and Hello
Release Date: 1967
It seems that no end of 'essential' albums were released in 1967. Continuing the never-ending swim in the waters of the Summer of Love we get to Tim Buckley - father of Jeff. Like his son, Tim was one of rock's young casualties and these are the only two reasons I'm aware of him. I assumed this was going to sound like an older version of 'Grace' but while it does have its similarities, the album is a lot more acoustic than I expected. The vocals are gorgeous, and the songs equally as impressive. However they do have a tendancy to meander.
Favourite Track: No One Can Find The War
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
