by Andrew Hultkrans

Largely known by younger generations as "Jeff's dad," Tim Buckley was a similarly prodigious, mercurial talent with a multi-octave tenor and heartthrob good looks, who also died young. But on his best records, he was more experimental, blending folk, jazz, and avant-garde sensibilities into a searching, mystical style whose only real analogs are Van Morrison's Astral Weeks and Fred Neil's "The Dolphins." This expansion of his gorgeously yearning 1966 folk-rock debut -- decorated by Jack Nitzsche's string arrangements and Van Dyke Parks' keyboards -- includes stereo and mono mixes, acoustic demos, plus loose recordings by Buckley's pre-solo band the Bohemians.
