On a Monday night at the end of winter, tucked away in the narrow bustling streets of the West Village, Tim Buckley sits with acoustic guitar resting on one knee. Crammed into a tiny room at the Folklore Center, a hub for up-and-coming songwriters, listeners tilt their heads as the long stream of Buckley's voice fills the room. It is 1967. Buckley is fresh out of his teenage years, and has just cut his self-titled debut. The summer of love is around the corner. And this night is one in a long string of nights that will bring Buckley to eminence as one of the most important figures of the folk era.

On Aug. 25, the Tompkins Square Label will release Tim Buckley- Live at the Folklore Center, NYC- March 6th, 1967, a live recording of this intimate performance. Six of the 16 cuts are Buckley originals that have never been released. The tracks will appear in the very order they did on that evening 42 years ago, and the liner will include an interview with the young musician by Folklore Center's Izzy Young. This release will serve as a prequel to the seven live albums and eight studio albums that followed Tim Buckley.
