Release Date:07/07/2017;Notes:Limited edition 180gm vinyl LP pressing. 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 by the time his fans caught up to his latest stylistic change he was off on another. 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).;Special Attributes:COLORED VINYL
