Tim Buckley: Digging Deeper to the Roots

Chris Charlesworth, Melody Maker, 1973

IN A WORLD that seems grossly over-populated with singer/songwriters whose crotchets and quavers reflect their personal attitudes and experiences, Tim Buckley stands out like the proverbial sore thumb. He doesn't preach, he doesn't claim a right to solve the world's problems and he doesn't bore the listener with waves of songs of interest only to himself or immediate friends.
