Leslie Winer & Maxwell Sterling / Tim Buckley

Once I Was

    The latest installment of Light in the Attic’s exclusive vinyl and digital singles series features musician, poet, and author Leslie Winer collaborating with Manchester-born composer Maxwell Sterling on a truly gorgeous cover of Tim Buckley’s 1967 forlorn love song “Once I Was.”

    Buckley’s original classic is found on the flip-side and initially taken from the release Lady, Give Me Your Key: The Unissued 1967 Solo Acoustic Sessions (FDR 631).

    Artwork by Los Angeles-based fine artist Robbie Simon.

    Tim Buckley - Coloured Vinyl Reissue

      This self-titled work is Tim Buckley’s debut album, originally released in 1966. Most of the songs were co-written by Buckley and Larry Beckett while still in high school. It also features lifelong friend and collaborator Lee Underwood as well as Van Dyke Parks. This mostly folk oriented album was the start of an incredibly versatile career in which he later incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul and avant-garde.

      The album is released as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on gold coloured vinyl.

        Look At The Fool

          The list of '60s and '70s singersongwriters is long and full of legends; but perhaps the most talented of that very talented bunch was Tim Buckley. Certainly when it came to singing Buckley was at the very top; his range was unmatched, capable of covering several octaves and acres of emotion in one breath, from sweet, tenor tenderness to hoarse, cracking anguish.

          And his songwriting showed a similar wide range; in the course of eight short years Buckley went from baroque, psychedelic folk rock to jazzy, even avant-garde ravings to blue-eyed soul. This extreme eclecticism, of course, worked against Buckley commercially. But it's also one of the reasons why his reputation has steadily grown in the years since his untimely death in 1975.

          Countless listeners only familiar with his early Elektra albums have found themselves floored by his later output. Which is where we find ourselves with 1973's Sefronia and 1974's Look at the Fool, the last two records Buckley released during his lifetime and probably the two most controversial albums of his career. Long-time fans decried these records as sellouts, and indeed their soft '70s funk feel is jarring to those used to his more adventurous work. But Buckley proves himself to be one helluva R&B singer on these albums, which deserved a much larger audience than they got (by this time Buckley was on Frank Zappa and Herb Cohen's label DiscReet).

          Now, Real Gone Music is proud to present both Sefronia and Look at the Fool on vinyl for the first time since the late '80s, in versions newly remastered from the original master tapes by Bill Inglot. These releases mark a significant upgrade in sound from what's heretofore been available, and to celebrate, we're offering each of these records in two different versions: for audiophiles, a limited edition of 400 copies in 180-gram black vinyl, and for collectors, a limited edition of 300 copies in colored vinyl (Red for Sefronia and Blue for Look at the Fool). It's high time these albums were reappraised; these vinyl releases show them at their very best!

            says: Tim Buckley had long since left his pure folk roots behind, but to get the groove and swing this late on was a startling new chapter for him and his fans. This has his glorious take on Fred Neil's "Dolphins" on it: worth the price of admission on its own.

            Lady, Give Me Your Key: The Unissued 1967 Solo Acoustic Sessions

            13 previously unissued solo acoustic demos
            * Remastered from the original analog tapes and acetate
            * Book includes in-depth interview with Buckley’s lyricist Larry Beckett

            In 1967, the face of rock was changing. In that year alone there were debut albums from The Velvet Underground, The Doors, and Pink Floyd, to name a few. The Beatles had combined orchestration with their music—the result was Sgt. Peppers in June, the same month that Tim Buckley recorded Goodbye & Hello.

            Buckley was no longer just another singer-songwriter with an acoustic guitar; he was drenched in acid-folk tinges of harpsichord and harmonium. Lyricist Larry Beckett embellished Tim’s songs with introspective lyrics at times, worldly views at others. It was the first major triumph for Tim as an album artist, partially because there were a remarkable amount of pre-production demos that led to it.

            Available here for the first time are these newly discovered master tapes, recorded by Goodbye & Hello’s producer Jerry Yester, along with an ultra-rare acetate, found to be in co-songwriter (and best friend) Beckett’s possession.

            Of the 13 previously unreleased solo acoustic songs contained here, six of them did eventually appear with more expansive instrumentation on Goodbye & Hello (along with another four not included here). However, the crown jewel of this package is seven never-before-heard compositions. These will be new to even the most devoted Buckley fan. Arguably, two of them crept out decades after Tim’s death (albeit, much different recordings than what you have here) but with little fanfare.

            So much has been written about Tim Buckley but so little of it by people who actually knew him. This booklet, however, includes a detailed interview with both Larry Beckett and Jerry Yester, providing real insight on how these recordings came to be and attempting to uncover the man behind all the myths, the real Tim Buckley.

            Several rarities releases in the 1980s and ‘90s shed light on his talent, especially the live recordings, but all of the studio material has generally been alternative versions of songs that fans already knew—until now. This is the first-ever posthumous release that reveals a wealth of previously unreleased and unheard tracks from Tim at the peak of his career. In short, you need this!

            Happy Sad

              His third album released in 1969, this saw Buckley really spreading his wings and incorporating more jazzy elements into the sound. The album featured just six tracks, many of them lengthy and evolving opuses of passion and pain, but there was now more depth and space to his music which complemented his amazing vocal range to complete perfection.

              Tim Buckley

              Goodbye And Hello

              Buckley's second album, and a quantum leap on from his first. Recorded in 1967 when the world was still feeling the recent after-effects of "Sgt. Peppers", this album's scope was immense, and a few tracks were even co-written by poet Larry Beckett. Cited by many as Tim Buckley's best album, this was certainly the pinnacle of Tim's more traditional folk side.

              Tim Buckley & Goodbye And Hello

                Tim Buckley died on June 29th 1975 less than a decade after these, the first, of his albums were issued. In that period the 'tenderest of troubadour' image was replaced by the vulnerable, emotionally complex and damaged tortured artist of his later work. Drugs and inner demons played a bitter part in his story but there is a freshness and joy on these early recordings that have no echo of the pain to come. Remastered and reissued as part of Elektra Records 50th Anniversary these are gifted and insightful delights.

                Morning Glory-The Anthology

                  If anyone could be termed a tortured genius Tim Buckley could. The self induced damage he did to himself, the anguish and pain in some of his songs are a bitter mirror image to the purity of his voice and the hope for love and a better world in other tracks. This is a superb anthology - 33 tracks, many rare or previously unreleased plus all his great works like "Song To The Siren" and "I Must Have Been Blind".
