Album · 1990 · 16 Songs. Despite not being released until 1990, Dream Letter is one of Tim Buckley’s finest albums. This complete recording, from 1968, is an unadulterated look at his improvisatory approach as he runs through familiar album cuts and six previously unreleased tunes. His extensive vocal range and raw emotion turn the concert into a cathartic experience. With guitarist Lee Underwood, bassist Danny Thompson and vibraphonist David Friedman as his backing band, Buckley soars to the heavens. Dream Letter - Live In London 1968 Tim Buckley.

Recorded in London in 1968, when Buckley was just beginning to be really successful and had yet to move out of his folk-oriented phase. The band he's working with here is simple - Buckley's voice and fairly simple guitar; Lee Underwood providing subtle, almost jazz-like electric accompaniment; Pentangle's Danny Thompson sitting in on bass (with a minimum of rehearsal); and vibraphone player David Friedman. It's a spectacular piece of work, too. It's difficult to believe that the tape was made in 1968 - there's almost no noise, the music seems perfectly recorded, and the ambience is breathtaking. Buckley's voice is right up front, hovering over the acoustic guitar, clear as a bell.

Buckley recorded his self-titled debut album in three days in Los Angeles, in August 1966. He was generally unhappy with his albums after the fact; he described this one as "like Disneyland". The record featured Buckley and a backing band of Orange County friends, including Underwood, whose mix of jazz and country improvisation on a twangy Telecaster guitar became a distinctive part of Buckley's early sound.

Nell'estate del 1968 Buckley torna in Inghilterra per tenere un primo concerto londinese e, a causa dei costi di viaggio e di soggiorno, è costretto a portare con sé solo alcuni dei componenti del suo gruppo

It's been said that Tim Buckley was the most powerful singer of his generation. Even if that appraisal forgets Bob Dylan, the live set Dream Letter makes a hell of a defence. At the very least, his voice could do things few could: it soared beyond any familiar register and held notes long past the breaking point. He learned from jazz vocalists such as Sarah Vaughn, but he put technical prowess into the service of a strange, trance-like state. This concert was recorded in 1968, in London. Buckley had released 2 fairly straightforward folk-rock albums, but much of the material played here was unreleased. Listening to the album, it sounds wonderful.
