86. Tim Buckley - Goodbye and Hello

Release Date: 1967
Label: Elektra

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.

Rating: 6/10
Favourite Track: No One Can Find The War
