Tompkins Square has released some truly amazing folk music, everything from the very old (Red Fox Chasers) to the brand new (James Blackshaw). But the New York imprint has totally outdone itself with this rare gem: a Tim Buckley performance recorded in 1967 before an audience of no more than 35 people. In addition to boasting impeccable sound, Live at the Folklore Center also contains six original compositions, including the mesmerizing "Country Boy," that were never recorded in the studio.
