Early 2015, an idea to marry the world’s most iconic classical music event with Britain’s greatest electronic dance music icon was proposed. Eyebrows were raised and questions were asked. Could it work? Fast forward to July 2015, in the hallowed surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall, as the string section of The Heritage Orchestra played the open bars of Fatboy Slim’s ’Right Here Right Now’, any doubts were dispelled as the audience rose to their feet and a new movement in dance music was born. Breaking BBC iPlayer records and racking up 500,000 views via YouTube in the first week, the Ibiza Prom inspired a younger generation to engage with orchestral music and rekindled the passions of a rave generation.
UK-only five CD box set containing a quintet of albums from this influential singer/songwriter housed in mini-LP sleeves. Includes the albums Tim Buckley (1966), Goodbye And Hello (1967), Blue Afternoon (1969), Happy Sad (1969) and Lorca (1970). Happy!!! NOT Sad! Prime Tim Buckley finally available. Today I just ran across this listing in Amazon and ordered it within seconds. So I cannot comment on the packaging or sound quality, but being issued by Warner Brothers UK, I am confident that both will be excellent. What I can comment on is: finally, to my ears, the single best Tim Buckley album "Blue Afternoon" is back in print after years of being unavailable. "Blue Afternoon," although comprised of so-called "leftovers" as far as Buckley was concerned, has always been my favorite Buckley album, which I purchased when it came out in 1969.
