3 stars 3.5 stars really!!!

After an esteemed critical success and little commercial one, Elektra got Tim back in the studio and definitely decided to break his name into the wide open and put the means where their mouths were. And the album did get very successful, causing G&H to become some kind of template for the ideal singer/songwriter blueprint to follow-up. Trouble is that Tilm didn't want much of it, as he had already his own idea of the direction he wanted to head in for; but he clamped down and did what was told for this album, as he needed to get himself some notoriety for him to find the space to be able to record his own music. Tim had jokingly suggested calling this album Timbuck Two, but they went ahead with the dual front and back cover and the title spreading on the two .

By now, Tim is working as a dual partnership in songwriting with longtime buddy Lary Beckett taking care of the lyrics. This is a bit of an amazement when you'll know how much of the next year's text will ring so much like Buckley's personal experiences being sung. Most likely they were and Beckett was probably finding the words that Tim couldn't find but was eagerly awaiting someone to put in his mouth. However the superb I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain, Tim unleashes his thoughts towards his wife, whom he'd been coerced into marrying, something that obviously only Tim could feel. Not only poignant lyric-wise, the music (a bedding of 12 strings and congas) is equally impressive.

Elsewhere in the album, there is the 8-mins+ stunning piece, the title track that splices into two parts, the first sung by their parent's generation and the other voice being the counter-culture's generation's answer abut these old decaying values, Beckett's lyrics attacking marriage (remember Tim's semi- forced wedding)war, TV (then controlled by the establishment) etc. Although I wouldn't really call this a rock opera, we're not far away from it, either, as the two melodies evolved into a single piece and a string section was called upon for the rich arrangements. It might not please everyone but the title track is one of the album's highlight. And besides Tim's second best-known track Morning Glory (after Song To The Siren), you'll find poignant anti-war song like No Man Can Find War, starting with a nuclear blast.

Two of my favourites are Pleasant Streets, a superb positive song with Tim's superb higher tone of voice over a fantastic bed of keyboard layers and a wild fuzz guitar to answer him, and the aptly-titled Hallucinations, which starts out psychedelic-wise with a sitar, but Tim's absolute delicate melody give a troubadour twist to the song, with the middle section overflowing from great instruments but maybe a bit too wisely over-produced. Both tracks are grandiose and really give the album a special touch, one that should get you inside Buckley's interior world.

By now Tim had a prototype of his ultimate back up band and his concerts started sounding rather different than he sounded in the studio, and he meant it that way. This trend would sort close with the few albums to come such as Happy Sad and Lorca. So general concerts by the time of release of G&H consisted of five songs from the featured album, none from the debut and the rest from the jazz- infested folk that filled HS and lorca?, much to the furry of the Elektra label that resented Tim sabotaging what they thought was a top 20 album. Indeed, this wouldn't be the last of this fight. While G&H is a vast improvement on the debut album, and there are a few stunning tracks, G&H will not be able to compete with what was to come. Definitely worth a listen and might just be worth a space on your shelves.

3 stars Yester-days

Tim Buckley lost no time in following up his delightfully straightforward debut, returning to Los Angeles in early 1967 to work with noted producer Jerry Yester. Yester was well versed in the sophisticated pop of bands such as The Turtles, with a keen ear for a strong song. Buckley was already starting to push back against his singer/songwriter, folk troubadour image both visually and in terms of the songs he was writing.

The result was an album which only took a month to record, but which was put together at significant expense and with great attention to detail. At this stage, Buckley still had the full belief of Elektra records behind him, so the inclusion of a 14 piece orchestra and almost unlimited studio time was not an issue for them.

The album opens with an exploding bomb introducing "No man can find the war", an undisguised protest song with lyrics which, although still relevant today, are very much of their time. While the songs are generally similar to those on the first album, the pop elements are already starting to be suppressed, with songs such as "Pleasant street" having a moodier feel. The lead guitar work on the track is more overt, while Buckley flexes his vocal dexterity. "Hallucinations" continues the darker atmosphere, with spacey effects and psychedelic references.

By this time, Tim was already separated from his wife and son (Jeff), a situation reflected in the open lyrics of "I never asked to be your mountain". The main fury of the song though is in Buckley's thrashing of his 12 string guitar. The song conveys the full power and majesty of Buckley's unique voice.

The focal point of the album is the epic (almost) 9 minute title track, which weaves its way through various time signatures and melodies, a song where it seems Buckley has thrown in everything he can think of. In some ways, this is Buckley's "American Pie", but it lacks the catchy chorus of songs such as that, leaving a rather impenetrable ramble through an obscure story. The album closes with the heavenly "Morning glory", with angelic choirs and lush orchestration, lovely song.

While "Goodbye and hello" lacks the immediate accessibility of Tim's debut, it generally remains an album of fine individual songs. The hints are there of the path Buckley would choose to follow, but at this stage he is still largely committed to working with his record label to secure commercial success. Overall, there is a sophistication to the music here which was missing on the first album but both are delightful in their own ways.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Goodbye and Hello is the second studio album from American folk/ rock artist Tim Buckley. I found his debut album rewarding but not really to my taste and I´ll say the same about Goodbye and Hello.

The music is American folk/ rock. It´s dominated by the strong vocals from Tim Buckley and it´s only because of those vocals that this music is interesting. The music isn´t very interesting without the vocals. Compared to the polished debut there are a couple of more interesting tracks on Goodbye and Hello. Carnical Song, I Never Asked to Be your Mountain, the title track and my favorite on the album Pleasant Street needs a mention. Tim Buckley´s vocal performance on the latter is nothing but outstanding. Had all songs on the album been like this I would have given this album a higher rating.

The musicianship is good and as mentioned Tim Buckley´s vocals are outstanding. He sounds like a young Roy Orbinson at times but with a much more varied style.

The production is very professionel and well crafted considering the time when this album was released.

Goodbye and Hello is a step forward from the good but a bit too polished debut album. It seems that there´s a greater freedom to experiment even though Goodbye and Hello is also a very polished folk/pop/rock album for the most part. 3 stars is my rating. I think there´s a lot of promise on this album and I´m gonna look forward to listening to more albums from Tim Buckley.

3 stars No, seriously, who is she?

Goodbye and Hello is a much stronger output than its predecessor. This is even clearer when, like me, you get to hear them one immediately after the other: the edition I'm reviewing comes with Tim's self-titled debut album in the same disc. The booklet, while not vast, includes complete artwork and credits for the albums, as well as a critical review of the period in Tim's career when they were recorded.

In contrast to the songs on the previous album, the opener No Man Can Find The War is quite a change, introducing some sounds effect emulating explosions, featuring some great harpsichord ant Tim's vocals toned down (less dramatic, but much more melancholic). Carnival Song perfectly conveys the sense of a fair, with the circus- like atmosphere music being once more delivered by the keyboards and sound effects. A lovely piano tune opens Pleasant Street, accompanied by the again beautiful harpsichord and electric guitar strumming, in a delicate tapestry of sounds, before the outburst of the chorus. Tim's vocals are very "feminine" in this track. Hallucinations has a certain British Isles folk feel to it, again featuring some interesting use of eerie sound effects and percussion. I Never Asked To Be Your Mountain is a return to the vocal style and melody of the first album, but the ending is wilder than anything on Tim Buckley. Once I Was sounds like an old country western ballad. Phantasmagoria In Two follows in the same mood, again appearing to cross the Atlantic towards the electrified medieval troubadorism of Albion, a strategy repeated for the slightly cheesy but fortunately short Knight-Errant. The epic Goodbye And Hello mixes much of the styles that have been presented throughout the album, with the added benefit of the presence of a backing orchestra. It is more a collage of different tunes than a proper epic construction over the same base tune, but it works excellently. Morning Glory wraps up the album, another short and sweat ballad.

If you wish to find out why Tim Buckley is listed in ProgArchives, the first few albums are not the place to look. However, Goodbye and Hello is a much more varied and interesting album than Tim's debut, with longer and more complex compositions, featuring some great folk-pop tunes, with occasional glimpses of 60's early American psychedelia. Buckley's voice is still an acquired taste (and if you arrive unprepared, sometimes you will swear it's a woman singing), but if you can take it, this album might be a good place to start looking for the roots of the eclectic experimentalism that will be heard in his later works.
