Happy Sad

Tim Buckley

1969

Happy Sad
Album Summary

Happy Sad is the third album by American singer-songwriter Tim Buckley, released in April 1969. It was recorded at Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles, California and was produced by former Lovin' Spoonful members Zal Yanovsky and, coincidentally, his subsequent replacement Jerry Yester. It marked the beginning of Buckley's experimental period, as it incorporated elements of jazz that he had never used before. Many of the songs here represent a departure from the binary form that dominated much of his previous work. The sound of the album is characterized by David Friedman's vibraphone, an instrument which gives the album a more relaxed tone than Buckley's earlier work. The songs are much longer than on previous releases and this style continued through to later works. The vocals on the album are more drawn out than earlier performances and this represents the beginning of Buckley using his voice like an instrument. The lyrics on Happy Sad represent a change as Buckley stopped working with Larry Beckett, his lyricist on the two previous albums Tim Buckley and Goodbye and Hello, and began writing the lyrics himself. Buckley's self-penned efforts stand in contrast to Beckett's occasionally political and literary-style work. Buckley would also go on to author all his own material on the following two albums.

In high school, I had a crush on a girl. She had long since decided we should only be friends. I had my head buried deep in the self-absorbed teenage sands and I was unfoundedly convinced that the time for our true relationship was imminent. You would've thought I'd have known better, given she already had a boyfriend. One day, she asked me to drive her to boyfriend's house, to which I agreed because ... of course I wanted to hang out with her! We got there and the plan somehow turned into the three of us hanging out in my car, in the dude's driveway. They chatted and cuddled while I strummed my guitar. In hindsight, I'm sure there were numerous clear signals that I should have gone for a walk or something, but as I said I was oblivious. In fact, as the plan went on, I became progressively convinced that I had been invited along because somewhere deep down inside she wanted to leave this guy and be with me. The masterstroke of my subterfuge, most certainly, would be my musical prowess. In reality, I was shit at playing the guitar and the main reason I was there is primarily because I had a car. I feel like Tim Buckley and young me, were on a similar wavelength.

I was gonna make a joke, but holy cr*p, it's actually Jeff Buckley's dad. I've never heard of this guy, but I was immediately excited by how few tracks were on here. These are long songs, with time for Tim and his audience to settle into the tunes together. I really like this, "happy sad" is spot on. The instrumentals sound bright due to what I think is the vibraphone - I'm getting that from wikipedia. The production is meandering and jazzy, while his lyrics and vocals are much more melancholy. "Gypsy Woman" is a nice shot of adrenaline too. I really don't have any complaints with this one, I think it's really cohesive and ruminative in all the right ways. Sign me up for more from Buckley, Sr. Favorite tracks: Buzzin' Fly, Gypsy Woman, Love from Room 109, Dream Letter. Album art: Just a simple headshot (or HS for those of us in showbiz, gracias amigas) but It's a good shot. More sad than happy but I like the angle and everything. Very cool. 4.5/5

Psychedelic-Folk crossed with Jazz Fusion is a combination of genres that I did not expect to see together. And I gotta say it's pretty enjoyable. I normally have a tendency to complain about albums having an excess of long songs. But I think it is something that both Tim and Jeff Buckley manage to do very well. "Love from Room 109 at the Islander (On Pacific Coast Highway)" Has as many words to the title as it does minutes in the song, but it was a great song to just sit there and vibe out to. "Dream Letter" is similarly wonderful to vibe to. "Gypsy Woman" is where it gets more experimental and feels like too long of a song. It isn't a bad song, but it's just not for me. Happy Sad is basically how I describe my personal musical style of both what I make and what I listen to. So this album resonates with me very well.

This album was interesting. It reminded me a bit of Gary Burton (with Chick Corea) but that was most likely just because of the vibraphone. I liked the album more as it went on and thought the opening track was the weakest. It's quite laid back and it certainly doesn't demand attention in the way some other albums do. That being said there is a lot of variety between slow ballads like Dream Letter and much more upbeat folk-rock songs like Gypsy Woman. I didn't get the chance to listen to the album all the way through twice but I would like to come back to it. Favorite Songs: Buzzin' Fly, Love from Room 109 at the Islander (On Pacific Coast Highway), Dream Letter, Gypsy Woman, Sing a Song for You Least Favorite Song: Strange Feelin' Strong 8/10

This is a lovely record, a bath of relaxed jazz guitar, vibes, cheerful strumming and Buckley sounding somehow both casual and sublime. I’m in the mood for this today; some days, he’s too angelic for me, but I may play Dream Letter later as a chaser. An of-its-time content warning is merited for the witchy gipsy woman song, but I suppose his fantasising about Romani is kinder than Enid Blyton’s. As my Uncle Feroz pointed out when he snatched a Famous Five book out of my eight-year-old hands, man she was racist as heck.

These Tim Buckley records are pretty good so far, they seem to breeze by with subtle instrumentation and atmospherics and aren’t very intrusive - good music if you need to concentrate on another task while listening. A bit melancholic for my taste, especially towards the end (expected from an album called happy/sad), but not to the point of being a drag.

Jeff Buckley is an artist whose voice I appreciate quite a lot, but I only recently found out he was not the first in his family with a significant reputation in the music world. On this record, the first track does not inspire the same confidence in me. I find the instrumentals on it (Strange Feelin') to be very confusing, not fitting with the lyrics or tone of the song at all. This same feeling continues in the rest of this record, I find it mostly too slow, with mismatched sounds and weird choices in song length, and uninspiring. I can appreciate the vocal quality and theme, but it is not something I would find myself listening to with enthusiasm in the near future. Overall score, 2/5.

This is the third Tom Buckley album that I’ve listened to and it just doesn’t seem to get better. Buckley obviously has some good ideas and his playing is standard for the time, but his lyrical content leans far too into the sensitive artist trope. There is a lack of self awareness that makes this album a slog to get through. I will grant that his leaning onto the experimental and utilizing jazz elements was a good move for him.

God I hate giving this album a one but it's just so... all over the place. It meanders constantly. The jazziness is definitely noticeable, but it doesn't save the record from getting super boring. The songs are long, and it all just feels like a marimba-heavy jam session that got recorded and Tim Buckley said, "Yeah, good enough, send it." Just... not for me, I guess.

It got better with each song !! I wasn't super into it during the first two songs but when I listened to Dream Letter I was transported to a different place while I was washing dishes. I was at a farm at night and the more I listened the different I felt and the more I imagined !! The song just kept painting different pictures in my mind and it was very interesting to see what my mind would come up with at different points during the song. Dream Letter and Love from Room 109 were my favorites and I really liked Gypsy Woman and Buzzin' Fly. Cool experience genuinely because it's been a bit since a song has made me imagine 20 different things in the span of five minutes.

What a gorgeous album, what a beautiful man. This is folk pop but the instrumentals are syncopated and idiosyncratic, jazzy really. Together with Tim's extraordinary expressive powers, both lyrical and vocal, the effect is poignant, magical. "Happy Sad" is exactly right -- like the album cover, the tones are warm and the songs express earnest wistfulness in the best folk tradition. Buzzin' Fly made my heart feel tighter and lighter at the same time. The mood and sound remind me of Nick Drake (with the exception of Gypsy Woman which is interesting and well executed but seems misplaced here). Clearly something special was happening in pop music in the years 1968-69.

This is really a great album and, at the same time, such an unassuming one. Except for the last song, which is concise and more straightforward (but nevertheless a gem), this album doesn't try to win you over with catchy melody, unique chord progressions or instrumental pyrotechnics. Rather, it is mood music of the best kind, creating its own sense of atmosphere, almost existing in its own world and letting you stay in it from the beginning to the end. It's also one of the best albums to listen to while taking a bath or shower.

No longer feeling beholden to whatever barricade that stood in his way, Tim Buckley created Happy Sad to allow listeners become witnesses to his immersion into jazzier terrain and folkier ruminations. Using his sprawling yet engaging musical explorations to full effect, this album is a journey from which one would not emerge the same; it could perhaps be said of Tim in regards to the most watershed work of his career.

First off, the album cover is hilariously ridiculous. Make it black&white and it could be the profile picture of that one edgy emo kid in high school. That aside, the music is pretty good. Nice voice, relaxing instrumentation. It sounds more like background-lounge music, however, without any exciting songs/parts. Really pleasant for working though.

Šta reći o ovom krasnom albumu? Nijedna pjesma nije loša, a instrumentali su milina. Glas mu je odličan, i varira iz pjesme u pjesmu, hoćeš od tihog do gubljenja glasa što se dere iz petnih žila. Poslušah par puta ovo i jednostavno je divan. Žao mi je što se ne mogu bolje izraziti, ali šta je tu je.

When I went to look up this album, I was startled at how many albums there were from Tim Buckley. Then as I listened to “happy sad” I started to realize what an insignificant speck I was in the world of music for never even having heard of him. As “Strange Feelin’” got going I thought ‘train song.’ As it chugged along Tim Buckley added his mournful, voice like a lonely train whistle. I loved the kind of noodly-jazz feel. “Buzzin’ Fly” is also fantastic. More vibraphones and marimbas?! Oh yes, I think this can work for me. The lyrics are beautiful. Tim Buckley’ vocals are incredible. Really great song! “Love From Room 109 At The Islander (On Pacific Coast Highway)” certainly sounds like it was written in a specific moment. This is the kind of song that one wishes someone would write about an event in their life. As I sat with my wine listening to the guitar solo I was suddenly in a dark hotel lounge in 1969… this song is long and meanders quite a lot. By the end I felt I had moved from the lounge into a concert hall. “Dream Letter” features a lot of cello/vibraphone/marimba and more melancholic lyrics. Really would like to be watching this performed live. Preferably with a cocktail in hand… “Gypsy Woman” introduces some interesting percussion and plays a lot with the tempo. I loved the slow build of the guitars from quit to frenetic. As the song comes together it becomes a mesmerizing chant. My favorite song on the album! “Sing A Song For You” and it’s poetic, (bitter?)sweet lyrics is arguably the most “conventional” song on the album. Lovely. “happy sad” pulls you back in time into its shmoozy, warm, dimly lit world. There are some very strong jazz currents that toy with other genres. The cellos, guitars and Tim Buckley’s vocals add heavy doses of pop, rock and the symphony that makes this album something else. It isn’t ‘music for all occasions,’ but the occasions it is for are ones I’d enjoy attending once in a while. Yet another new listening experience that I am glad to have.

Sweet and mellow, folksy and jazzy, double bass and marimbas, lovely melodies and a mournful voice. Side A was perfect for my state of mind on a lazy gray autumn Sunday afternoon. Side B's Gypsy Woman (title=ugh) went on way too long for me. Was grateful when that one was over. But overall, I really enjoyed this. Will look for more of him.

It's a good thing I love the vibraphone so much. I truly loved this album, although I could easily imagine listening to it on the wrong day and not appreciating it. It walks an edge, as does anything an artist tries out of the ordinary. I was trying to figure out what genre this album would be classified under, and saw that Apple Music labels it "Pop." Hmmm. I really liked Tim Buckley's voice and I truly loved the instrumentation. Not many pop albums combine vibraphone, acoustic and electric guitar, congas, string bass, and marimba. I loved the effect. Long tracks can be a killer for me. Luckily these created moods I wanted to be in. "Gypsy Woman" may have tested that a bit, but I really got into it the second time through.

To be honest, when I saw this on my timeline, I was frustrated there was another late 60s album. But when I payed attention to the Wikipedia page, I was intrigued to find out how Jim Buckley's dad sounds like. Happy Sad was a suprise pleasure to listen to. It's very tender acoustic jazz. Definitely a repeat listen and despite some songs being a tad too long, a worthy album for this list and reminds me why I signed up for this generator in the first place.

I really liked this album. Tim Buckley is one of those artists who is a little hard to classify, but really fascinating musically. His music is always engaging and somewhat off the wall, which I appreciate. It’s like folk-rock with strong jazz vibes and a splash of the psychedelic/experimental. The songs are warm, rambling, laid back and sensual. Buckley has a rich, soulful voice, augmented by some unusual but elegant arrangements. Lee Underwood's resonant, free-ranging guitar works beautifully in concert with the jazzy feel of the marimba and vibraphone. The resulting sound is very much of that time, but it also stands out as something quite unique. Fave Songs: Buzzin' Fly, Love from Room 109, Strange Feelin', Gypsy Woman

Father of Jeff Buckley, Tim shows exactly how good songwriting runs in the family. Happy Sad bathes in this warm atmosphere, built out of vibraphone and acoustic guitar, along with a few others to round out the sound. It gets a little weird at times but that gives it more flavor than anything. Anyway this is great. More Buckley, please

The beginning of this album really wowed me but I felt like it started to drag towards the middle. It feels like a worse version of Astral Weeks which still makes for a pretty good album. I hear David Crosby and his son in is voice and it was interesting to get this one so close to that one. I do like the ambition of the jamming and longer songs so I have to give this one a 4.

I really enjoyed this. Definitely feels like something I would've heavily cherished if I heard it for the first time in my early-mid teens. I'm giving it extra credit because Tim Buckley's vocals sound like what every alternative rock group was singing like in the 90's (Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, etc.) and was definitely influential in that regard
