On 13th October 2017, Rhino will release ‘Tim Buckley: The Complete Album Collection’, an 8CD set spanning 1966-1972.

Included among the albums are the classics ‘Goodbye & Hello’ and ‘Happy/Sad’. Like previous Rhino box set reissues of Alice Cooper and Blue Oyster Cult works, the albums are presented in card sleeves and housed in a small clam-shell box.

Although entitled ‘The Complete Album Collection’, the title is somewhat of a misnomer, since neither of Buckley’s last two studio releases – 1973’s ‘Sefronia’ and 1974’s ‘Look At The Fool will be part of the set. [These two albums have been remastered and will be reissued by Edsel Records two weeks earlier on 29th September, followed by three CDs featuring previously unissued live material from 1969.]

Despite recycling albums that Tim’s fans will already own, the good news is that the ‘Complete Album Collection’ box will include the 1970 album ‘Starsailor’, which has been unavailable on CD for over a decade, as well as a timely reissue of the 1999 Rhino Handmade compilation of demo recordings ‘Works In Progress’ which has also become very hard to find, since the original issue was a strictly limited edition of just 7,500 copies worldwide.
