UK publication - 1995
on from Dream Letter and Live From The Troubadour, the third in
Edsel's triptych of Buckley live releases draws on a radio broadcast from November
1973, by which time the singer's early fascination with courtly love in generally
pastoral settings had been replaced by the defiantly salty yet no less ecstatic
celebration of mature relationships and sex found on Greetings From LA.
by the Sefronia band of Joe Falsia (guitar), Bernie Mysior (bass), Buddy
Helms (drums) and Mark Tiernan (keyboard), Buckley sings of pinging bed springs,
erogenous stretch marks and, frankly, bitch dogs in heat with a lascivious vigour
that positively revels in the long haul: the title track clocks in at over eight
minutes and Sweet Surrender isn't far behind.
