GOODBYE AND HELLO
vinyl re-issue of buckley's ultimate statement in psychedelic folk from 1967.
recorded in the middle of 1967 (in the afterglow of sgt. pepper), this album is clearly inspired by pepper's exploratory spirit. includes some of his finest songs & most fruitful collaborations with poet larry beckett. the outstanding 'i never asked to be your mountain' is a real highlight, buckley playing up a storm on his 12 string while his vocals sail overhead. the title track is one of the masterworks of the psychedelic era. a seven-plus-minute suite, the song blends folk & classical music into one cohesive whole under a revolutionary message.
