Tim Buckley - I Can't See You

Sale price£17.00


This is the first ever release of these four Tim Buckley demos, mastered from the original tape by Bill Inglot and Dan Hersch. They are believed to have been recorded in 1966, after the Orange County demos of November 1965, but before the recording of debut album Tim Buckley in August 1966. The annotation on the inner sleeve has been written by LA-based Buckley expert Pat Thomas. He has interviewed Larry Beckett, Buckley’s school-friend, and co-writer of many of his early songs, including three of these. Beckett identifies the lead guitarist as Brian Hartzler (rather than subsequent mainstay Lee Underwood), the bass player as Jim Fielder (later of Buffalo Springfield, The Mothers, and Blood Sweat and Tears), and the drummer as possibly himself. Three of the four songs (It Happens Every Time, I Can’t See You and Grief In My Soul) on this EP were re-recorded for the debut album with a different set of musicians – this release affords the Buckley fan the opportunity to hear the songs before Buckley signed to the Elektra label and the professionals got hold of them.
