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

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.

Tim Buckley – Deluxe Edition

Tim Buckley – Deluxe Edition, a 2-disc set including the album in Stereo and Mono and 22 previously unreleased demo recordings, comes housed in a weathered cardboard folio with rare photos and is set for release on January 11 2011, with pre-order available beginning on December 15, exclusively at Rhino. The music on the second disc has remained unreleased until now and opens with 12 songs he recorded in November 1965 with The Bohemians, a group he formed in high school with Fielder, Beckett, and guitarist Brian Hartzler. The nine songs that make up the second half of the disc were recorded shortly before the sessions for Tim Buckley and feature Buckley singing and playing acoustic guitar with Beckett, who also recites poetry to Buckley’s guitar on two tracks.

Live at The Folklore Center, NYC: March 6th, 1967

This previously unreleased recording was captured by folk impresario Izzy Young at his famed Folklore Center located at 321 Sixth Avenue, which served as a nexus for up-and-coming singer-songwriters during the folk boom of the late ’60s.

The entire night’s concert, performed in front of about 35 people, is presented in its original running order of 16 songs, six of which are Tim Buckley compositions that have never appeared on any studio or live album.

Out now on Tompkins Square Records.
