The following EXCELLENT review ran in the Sunday 10/25 BOSTON HERALD:

 TIM BUCKLEY
“Live at the Folklore Center, NYC: March 6, 1967”
(Tompkins Square)
B+
Jeff Buckley and his father Tim both died prematurely, the son from drowning, the father from an overdose in 1975. Jeff surpassed his dad in terms of fame and impact, but as “Live at the Folklore Center” shows, Tim, at 20, was a masterful acoustic guitarist, a penetrating songwriter and a singer with a multi-octave range. You see their connection. Tim moved from folk toward jazz and psychedelia in later years, but this 16-track effort is just voice and guitar. The six songs not previously released are raw, introspective and impassioned, and the sound captured so long ago is surprisingly good. Download: “Dolphins.”
