About this album

Goodbye and Hello is the second album by Tim Buckley, released in August 1967, recorded in Los Angeles, California in June of the same year. The album was later re-released on January 22, 2001 in a compilation with debut album Tim Buckley by WEA/Elektra. In 2005 a 180 gram version of the LP was released on the label Four Men With Beards and is being distributed by City Hall Records. The album was recorded during June 1967 in Los Angeles, and produced by Jerry Yester and Jac Holzman. Matthew Greenwald in a retrospective review for Allmusic felt that it is “an excellent and revolutionary album that was a quantum leap for both Tim Buckley and the audience”. All songs written by Tim Buckley, except where noted.

    Starsailor is almost perfect and the most experimental of his albums but IN MY OPINION G&H is better. His debut, G&H and Starsailor are his the best works. Everyone has own opinion about this :)

    Starsailor is much better than this...Tim Buckley created the music he wanted he created the music he thought would bring him success.

    I will simply say that Tim's voice is completely outstanding. It's so strong, loud, and melodic. One of the best I've heard, actually.

    The best album of 1967, and that says a lot.

    I found it a tad too produced, his intense lofi jazz-folk albums appeal much more to my ears. Nevertheless solid gold here.

    V - because it's a fucking good album that's why. also probably the fact it contains 'once i was', 'morning glory' and 'phantasmagoria' didn't hurt it's ascent to the top of charts.

    I'm surprised this isn't my most played album... Every time one of its songs pops into my head, it tortures my brain until I have a chance to listen to the whole album again.
