EDITORS’ NOTES

Before venturing out as a solo singer/songwriter, Buckley worked with erstwhile Captain Beefheart guitarist Gary Lucas in the latter's band Gods and Monsters. Their perplexingly unsung partnership lasted less than a year, but this batch of demos, live recordings, and rehearsal tapes shows that the furiously inventive pair brought out the best in each other. Lucas's serpentine guitar licks and Buckley's agile voice entwine bewitchingly on early versions of tunes from Buckley's debut album ("Mojo Pin," "Grace") as well as hypnotic covers of Edith Piaf's "Hymne à l'amour" and the Porter Wagoner hit "A Satisfied Mind," plus several fascinating, nearly lost Buckley/Lucas originals.
