Tim Buckley - I'm Coming Home Again

Yet another reason I adore YouTube -- a rare look at a live Tim Buckley performance from 1968. It's a shame, on one hand, that most people these days know him solely as "the father of Jeff Buckley". At the same time, it's introduced his music to thousands of people who otherwise would likely never have heard it. It's ironic that Jeff probably spent most of his short career establishing himself within the context of his father's music, and that now Tim Buckley's work is establishing itself within the context of his son's.
