European-only two-fer reissue of the first two Tim Buckley albums, originally issued by Elektra in 1966/67 (these albums are currently available separately in the US on Elektra, but not in this two-fer form). Remastered with a new 8 page booklet of liner notes and graphics. From Peter Doggett's liner notes: "In reclaiming Buckley as an innovator, his earliest and -- in the case of Goodbye And Hello his most commercially accepted work, has tended to be passed over. Callow maybe, fallow, certainly not: beneath the veneer of singer-songwriterly trappings (Tim Buckley) and spirit- of-'67 grandiosity (Goodbye And Hello), these records -- fully formed in themselves, though in the light of Buckley's later work, perhaps too much so -- are both inspired and illuminating. Inspired, because while working to an essentially voguish template, there's a power and originality in Buckley's writing and performances that easily transcends formal limitations. Illuminating because the Buckley muse - the boundless pursuit of a new musical language - is already discernible in his daredevil vocal feats and instrumental passages of liquid-like languor."
