Product Description

Product Description

This previously unreleased live set features Tim in a small combo setting, doing material drawn chiefly from the Lorca and Blue Afternoon albums, with two never-before-heard songs.

The posthumously released Live At The Troubadour 1969 is the second of a trio of well-produced live albums (alongside 1968's Dream Letter-Live At London's Queen Elizabeth Hall and 1973s Honeyman) to be unearthed and packaged to feed Tim Buckley myth. One of the greatest rock voices ever, Tim Buckley drew from folk, psychedelic rock and progressive jazz. His multi-octave range was capable of powerful expressiveness and his restless evasion of any kind of self-definition always cast him as an outsider talent, a maverick. By the time of the Troubadour set, Buckley's improvisational technique was sensual, feverish and utterly unique. The music, mostly taken from 1970s Lorca and Blue Afternoon albums ekes out the kind of truly blitzed existential avant-garde blues you get from Buckley on a good day but it's the twists and turns of that "voice" that really startles. Whether ripping up the hood of the tender "Strange Feelin'", stretching, cajoling and scatting "I Don't Need It To Rain", prowling around the notes of "Nobody Walkin", Buckley's soul-soothing, vocal gymnastics are always perfect for an exploration of your imagination. Supported by a band willing to drift into moody epic plateaus, Buckley delivers a righteous fusion of lazy rhythms, junk-waffle jazz and soul with gutsy depth of emotion and empathy. --Reuben Dessay

Only about a year passed from "DREAM LETTER-LIVE IN LONDON" to the recording of this live show. There is a huge change in line-up and Buckley's voice in another world compared to "DREAM LETTER". "LIVE AT THE TROUBADOR" marks Buckley's slide from his records "LORCA" AND "STARSAILOR"(what I would do to have this record in print again). The band is largly a jazz/blues/avant garde band. Lee Underwood is still here playing gutair, but also playing electric piano(one of the few downsides of this record). Basically few fans of Buckley, this is heaven sent.

Finally, Buckley's incredible vocal range is shown in all its exceptional prowess. The stand out track is the astounding "Gypsy Woman" (where Timmy wants the spell cast on him, always the ironic iconoclast) that has Buckley going from a counter tenor to a falsetto to a banshee wail. Simply astounding. If you know nothing about Tim Buckley, this is the album to purchase to get yourself duly informed. A fantastic record of a man before his time.

I'm 13, I grew up in a 60's music loving family, and I'll always love this C.D.! This Tim Buckley C.D. has such an assortment of rythems, lyrics and feelings in every song. Any persons would be crazy not to love this C.D at first glance, it's a master piece and I love it! (and you should too!) enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic session Jan. 13 2010
By quisten8 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This totally rocks. It's from Tim's "middle period," so it's jazzy and psychadelic. The jams are long, the band immersed and in the groove. It blows me away every time I listen to it, and it's my favorite by far of the five or six Tim Buckley recordings that I have. If you like the uninhibited spirit of this session, check out Tim's son's (Jeff Buckley's) first recording, the double album Live at Sin-e. Of course, that one was mostly Jeff doing covers of other people's compositions, whereas Live at the Troubadour is all Tim's compositions. Two amazing talents that ironically were both taken from us far too soon. RIP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Jan. 10 2010
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on
Format: Audio CD
On Live At The Troubadour 1969, Tim Buckley performs "Gypsy Women" from Happy Sad. This, like a lot of live performances of the era, is extended, and the impact is...........

........well, here is an instance when someone like me who writes a lot about music wonders if he has not been doing so just a bit too much. You use words like "amazing" "classic" "stunning" a lot. It happens by reflex when describing the music you are passionate about, especially when you are super-passionate about music.

Are you throwing those words without thinking? Trying to find the quikest term instead of the one that fits best?

Well, sometimes. But when I use the words "absolutely searing" here, I know I have gotten it, meticulously, surgically correct.
This rendition of Buckley's "Gypsy Women," may be one of if not the best live musical performance I have ever listened too, and this is drawn from a 7000 album collection.

This track is transformed from a experimental piece of folk to a jazzy masterpiece--yeah, I thought that overused term out for this review too.

Buckley starts with a minor, mediteranian sounding scale and strums to the drums. He changes his guitar from a folk instrument to an exotic one. He sets the chords up. He repeats. He waits. He sings, a slow deep moan--a little up, further. A climax?

No. He waits some more. He lets the music bubble, varries his voice-- understanding pacing the way Coltrane did with his sax. Buckley uses his voice, in fact, as a jazz instrument, a horn that is in his vocal chords. It is sexual. It is full of suspence.

Finally, after more than ten minutes, Buckley rises to the top of his octive range, and his operatic voice sings, in a blues scale, nailing you to the wall. He has given you everything, and I mean everything, a singer ever could

The rest of the album--as if you needed anymore- is full of Bitches Brew like keybords, jazzy folk experments, and performances, that in general, trump the origonal album versions

So, no, you are not by a mile buying this for one track. Everything here is top notch.

But if you were, "Gypsy Women" would make even the worst music worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lorca/Blue Afternoon era BUCKLEY LIVE Nov. 28 2005
By W.T.Hoffman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I am always totally amazed by this live album. For those of you that have DREAM LETTER from 1968, this concert just blows that earlier show out of the water. First off, apparently the smack had begun to flow up the shooter's neck, cos Tim makes a joke about it. No mystery there. The drug may have played into this free jazz-folk approach, but i like to think that Tim just had reached this stage of developement thru the natural esthetic evolution of his freedom loving muse. Some of the best cuts from LORCA, and BLUE AFTERNOON get fantasmagorical work outs here. The band has an uncanny ability to read Jeff's intensions and direction. Lee Underwood keeps a nice syrupy lead guitar dripping around the arrangements, CC Colins on Congas puts some neat percussive colors and textures on the proceedings, enhancing the total sound, and merging perfectly with drummer ART TRIP. (Art Trip was in the Mothers of Invention, right before this album. Zappa only used the best.) And John Balkin's bass playing is, well, more like a lead instrument than a bass. Often he can be heard jumping around the fretboard, performing sonic leaps and acrobatics with his bass lines that are a perfect match for Tim's vocal style. And, let's not forget that Tim was no slouch on acoustic guitar either. It's a five peice jazz/folk band, in the tradition of Van Morrison's ASTRAL WEEKS. As for the technical quality of the recording, I can't complain there. This is nothing short of a perfect live performance document, of a singer at his prime. The gig was at Venice Beach, so Tim felt confident, and at home, with an audience of fellow freaks. I feel, like everyone else, that we are being cheated because of STARSAILOR/BLUE AFTERNOON's lack of availability. However, buy this CD, and you can at least enjoy a piece of the LORCA - BLUE AFTERNOON work, that underscored his OPUS MAGNUM. Also, the CD includes a cool essay about Tim, which is informative and fun to read. I've listened to this Tim Buckley CD, more than any other CD of his that I have, and I have 7 different CDs. You can almost FEEL the wind chimes, ocean breezes, and hot sun seducing you into a dreamy, trance like mood, when this CD is spinning under the lazer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as I remember him, but close Sept. 5 2006
By Donna Barnes-Roberts - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is gives a pretty faithful idea of what a show of Tim Buckleys was like at the Troubadour. Yes, I saw him at least a half a dozen times - I really can't remember the number. This CD showcases many of his staple songs, leading to long vocal virtuoso singing almost with jazz scatting leanings. You can really hear the playfulness he displayed live.

The only thing I miss in this is his earlier simpler presentation. I remember the best shows as just being himself on guitar, Mr. Carter on the Congas and other percussion, and this fabulous vibraphonist. Nope, I dont remember his name. I have yet to hear this vibraphonist on any recording, but I really thought that he was an important element in making the ethereal and almost other-worldly sounds that Tim Buckley spun. The guitar and keyboards are just an approximation, and too frequently overdriven, muddy, and too intrusive.
