Los Angeles 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Starwood, Los Angeles, CA; January 1975. Slight hiss. As a bonus, BBC interview with Tim Buckley.

Tim Buckley was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. His music and style changed considerably through the years; his first album (1966) was mostly folk, but his subsequent albums incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, avant-garde and an evolving “voice as instrument” sound. Though he did not find commercial success during his lifetime, Buckley is admired by later generations for his innovation as a musician and vocal ability. He died in June 1975 at the age of 28 from a heroin overdose, leaving behind his sons Taylor and Jeff, the latter of whom later went on to become a musician as well. Unfortunately, Jeff drowned in 1997 at the age of 30. - wikipedia

Tim Buckley soundboards are hard to come by and this Starwood show is certainly worth a listen though the BBC interview is a real filler.

  2. To say that Jeff Buckley “went on to be a musician as well” is an understatement at best.

  3. The “Blue Obsession” bootleg, not easy to find in the old vinyl hunting days. Thanks for this digitalized Obsession! The interview is a nice addition.

  5. Hey this sounds great. I love Tim. Hate to break the news but I think the date on this share is wrong. I saw Tim and his band 3 different times between Dec 74 and Jan 75. The set in this show is more likely a couple of years older. Tim had released the super funky and soulful “Look At The Fool” in late December of 74. I remember when he came into Vancouver and played The Commodore. I was selling vinyl for Kellys Stereo Marts. Tim was interviewed on CFOX and we listened to it in the shop. I went to his show that night and was blown away. He returned two more times by the end of January by popular demand and I kept getting blown away. None of the songs from Look At The Fool are in this show and he definitely played most of them every time I saw him. He wasn’t a living in the past kind of guy. In the radio interview he claimed to not own a record collection believing that it would pollute his own muse. Still this sounds cool. I was devastated when he died 6 months later.

  6. Meant to say he release Look At the Fool in late 74. I may be wrong about December but my memory says that was when the record came in.

  7. Thanks for this show. I am only familiar with Tim Buckley from his astonishing “Greetings from LA” album, a highly creative musical effort released in 1972 featuring his multi-octave voice. Tracks 2 and 4 are from that album.
