At His Best
Blue Afternoon: Tim Buckley
Buckley is one of the most underrated, and one of the most gifted, of today's
young songwriter-singers. He's made good records before, but this one is by far
and away his best to date - a crystal-clear distillation of the many eclectic
elements which make up his talent.
songs are included, all Buckley originals, and they run the gamut from folky blues
to sensual, jazz-tinged improvisations. Buckley's accompanying group is superb-
perfectly understanding and perfectly responsive to the subtle undercurrents of
most truly satisfying experiences, Blue Afternoon falls short of accurate
verbal description. Listen, and hear for yourself.
