Elektra Press Release

Happy Sad

(Elektra 74045)

Tim Buckley has something to say about rock: "There's a lot more to music than sex. I play heart music."

About his songs: "My new songs aren't dazzling; it's not two minutes and fifty seconds of rock'em, sock'em...I guess it's pretty demanding."

About lyrics: "If people want poems they should read Dylan Thomas."

About his music: "Mess up my body, man, but don't mess up my music."

About his direction: "There's going to be a change."

Tim Buckley says it all as he turns a corner in a new album on Elektra. His third.

Happy Sad

Those crazy about Tim Buckley and his special vision and those who aren't that familiar with him yet will find plenty in this new album to turn them on. There are but six cuts and each is a morsel for a king.
