Tim Buckley - Live At The Troubadour 1969 - Record Store Day 2018
Buckley, backed by a full band, set his five-and-a-half octave instrument loose on a singular blend of folk, jazz, funk, and even calypso. Daring, dazzling, challenging, ecstatic…one could run through a thesaurus pretty quickly trying to characterize Buckley's sound. Suffice it to say that LIVE AT THE TROUBADOUR-which, for Buckley collectors, has the distinction of featuring two songs, "Venice Mating Call" and "I Don't Need It to Rain," that never came out on a Buckley studio album-is a crucial piece in the discography of one of the most brilliant artists to emerge from the '60s. For its first-ever vinyl issue, we're releasing these essential performances on a 2-LP set housed inside a gatefold jacket featuring photos from the Buckley archives and liner notes. Clear vinyl edition limited to 1000 copies.
