I believe this Buck had a streak of 7 incredibly ambitious, incredibly diverse albums.

Not many artists can change so dramatically throughout their career like Tim could. 

I'm reading Dream Brother by David Browne right now, so the question beckons:

WHAT IS THE BEST BUCK??

Lorca is one of the three peaks of 1970 in my book (the other two are CSNY's Déjà Vu and Traffic's John Barleycorn Must Die).

For some reason, I've never listened to CSNY's Deja Vu. Even though it very clearly inspired IBIS, a band I quite like. Among many others. Listening to it now, thanks!!

The duel guitars in Almost Cut My Hair makes me think of some of that crazy riffing on New Trolls UT

Goodbye & Hello, Happy Sad, Blue Afternoon. Love his melancholy stuff, so powerful. "Once I Was" brings me to tears practically every time I hear it.

Starsailor gets my vote, for very personal reasons, though the rest are quite good.

New to Buckley here and although Starsailor is my favourite at the moment, I feel like it's going to change so I'll vote Happy Sad.

If this was any other musical site, Goodbye and Hello would win hands down in this poll and if I was honest with myself I would have voted for Goodbye and Hello myself. However I voted for his most creative effort Stairsailor which is probably his best work, but not exactly easy to listen to with all the mixed musical styles going on.

that's about as close to mine as possible... Lorca is his wildest and most experimental.
 
 
 
Though I'd place Happy Sad above Greetings and G&H

I'm glad to see a decent amount of appreciation for Buck. I wasn't sure how big he was on this site.

After hearing all of Starsailor, I realized that he was the TRUE inspiration for Demetrio Stratos' technique

Starsailor by far. One of the absolute best avant garde rock albums.

Hi,

I have to do some homework on this one ... haven't heard him in so long, I can't even remember him!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now you know what the inner art is all about!

Tough, but I'm going with Goodbye and Hello.  I saw him at the opening of the Fillmore East with Big Brother and the Holding Company and Albert King, in May of 1968 with The Byrds, and in October of that year with the Jeff Beck Group.  In August of 1969, two weeks before Woodstock (which I also went to) I saw him at The Atlantic City Pop Festival.
