Tim Buckley: Tim Buckley - Deluxe Edition

By Dave Di Martino

There is indeed a God in the heavens if albums like this are currently allowed to exist! Lovingly assembled by the crew over at Rhino Handmade, this limited edition set offers up the 1966 Elektra Records album debut of Tim Buckley--in both stereo and mono--and a second disc of previously unreleased demos and more, all of which is historically relevant beyond belief, long in coming, and, it should be said, quite good!

The album signifies just the beginning of one of popular music's best and most underrated artists, and--considering how far he'd traverse by the time he arrived at his 1971 masterpiece Starsailor--you can hear him here at his most accessible! In the words of one of his 60s contemporaries, get it while you can!
