The 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.
The CD package includes an unpublished interview with Buckley conducted by Izzy Young on March 17th & 18th, 1967, along with new notes from Young.
The album was produced for release by Tompkins Square label’s Josh Rosenthal and mastered from the original tapes by Grammy-winning engineers Steve Rosenthal, Warren Russell-Smith and Jamie Howarth.
Tim Buckley (1947-1975) was among the most adventurous and influential singer-songwriters of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, releasing nine studio albums in his career. Buckley’s music continues to deeply inspire new fans and artists with each passing year.
‘Live at the Folklore Center’, the earliest live recording among seven others commercially available, showcases Buckley in an intimate, solo acoustic setting, highlighting his magical guitar playing and soaring vocal style.
