The Dream Belongs To Me: Rare and Unreleased Recordings 1968 / 1973 consists of three demo sessions, two recorded in 1968 and the other in 1973. The first six songs of the album are the recordings from 1968, containing songs from Buckley’s singer-songwriter period. The majority of these songs would later be recorded and released on Happy Sad, whilst two others, “Song to the Siren” and “Happy Time”, would feature on Starsailor and Blue Afternoon respectively. “Ashbury Park” and “Danang” are early versions of Happy Sad’s “Love from Room 109 at the Islander (On Pacific Coast Highway)”. Here they appear as stand alone tracks but would later form two interlinked parts upon the final Happy Sad track. The final 8 tracks are demo recordings for Buckley’s 1973 album Sefronia. The demos appear much sparser in comparison to the more lushly produced final album versions.
