Does absolutely no justice to one of the best songs of all time, the arrangement and her vocals are just fucking awful. Frusciante did the only good cover of this, all the rest were just terrible copies of TMC's version.
It's pretty weak, but then again, Tim Buckley's 1970 version is just a weaker version of the acoustic 1968 one he did
At least it's not as bad as Fond Affections where they just copied the song but made it a little less abrasive
Kangaroo is the only great song on that album
I used to feel that way, but I think I just prefer the clarity and simplicity of the song in the live one
That said, Starsailor, like several of his other albums is fucking amazing and one of the best from that period
Oh yeah, they also covered I Must Have Been Blind. It's not outright awful, but it's pretty much pointless and doesn't add anything to the original.
I can't bitch too much, though. TMC introduced me to Tim Buckley, as well as Gene Clark, Big Star, etc.
But that would make you the pleb, considering it's the more popular version and in fact, the way many people both in the 80's and now, discover Tim Buckley. A lot of people don't even realize that song is a cover, it's hugely popular while Tim is not.
