Amoeba Review

Tiffany Anders 12/01/2010

Works In Progress is a collection of Buckley’s previously unreleased 1968 demo sessions. Most of the material here was recorded between his albums Goodbye And Hello and Happy Sad. While a few of these tracks made it onto the latter album, many of these stunning compositions were vaulted until rediscovered in the 1990s. The tracks here are stripped down and have a very intimate feel, particularly the first four tracks, which have minimal accompaniment. The opening “Danang” was later included in “Love From Room 109 At The Islander,” but the charm and ease of this recording offers listeners a completely different feel. His version of “Sing A Song For You” on this release is breathtaking and far superior to the final version heard on Happy Sad. But the true gems on this collection are those that appear towards the end of the album: “Dream Letter” is heart-wrenching, and the alternate versions of “Ashbury Park” are both equally captivating. An awe-inspiring listen from start to finish, this release comes highly recommended. Read More
