Tim Buckley – Greetings From West Hollywood – Live 1969, Vinyl, LP, 2017
Double vinyl LP pressing. 2017 archive live collection from the late singer/songwriter. Tim Buckley possessed a golden voice that spanned the range from baritone to tenor. More importantly, he knew what to do with it. Sometimes he used it simply as a vehicle to carry the lyrics. Other times he used it as an extraordinary musical instrument in it’s own right. In early September 1969 Buckley played five sets over two days at LA club The Troubadour, all of which were recorded. These shows featured him at his improvisational best, each performance of every song being different from other performances of the same song. A selection of these recordings was issued in 1994 as Live At The Troubadour 1969. Producers Pat Thomas and Bill Inglot have gone through the remaining recordings and have put together Greetings From West Hollywood which does not duplicate any recordings from the 1994 release.
