Personnel: Tim Buckley (vocals, 12-string acoustic guitar); Lee Underwood (guitar); David Friedman (vibraphone); Danny Thompson (bass).
Recorded live at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, England on July 10, 1968. Includes liner notes by Lee Underwood.
Buckley's London debut was recorded shortly after the release of the pivotal HAPPY SAD, on which he had broken away from folk music and embraced a more expressive, jazz-based style. The respectful audience at the Queen Elizabeth Hall reserve their warmest applause for standard singer-songwriter fare like "Morning Glory" and "Once I Was," but Buckley himself seems more at ease on lengthier vocal workouts such as "Love From Room 109/Strange Feeling" and "Carnival Song/Hi Lily, Hi Lo," enjoying the new-found freedom of expression afforded his remarkable multi-octave voice. The musical accompaniment is superb, Buckley's 12-string backed by guitar, vibes and bass. The only mystery is why this recording did not gain an official release until 1990.
