    Tributees: Tim Buckley; Jeff Buckley.
    Taking its cue from David Browne's book of the same name, DREAM BROTHER explores the music of Tim Buckley and his son, Jeff Buckley, through interpretations by other artists. Both extremely gifted singer/songwriters with strikingly good looks, highly distinctive voices, and adventurous musical sensibilities, the two also shared early demises, giving their personas an undercurrent of dark romance and tragedy. The melancholy and exuberant sides of the Buckleys' sounds are presented here; the Earlies evoke the regret of the senior performer's "I Must Have Been Blind" with their spare take, and Adem gives a very faithful acoustic reading of Jeff's haunting "Mojo Pin," while the Magic Numbers harmonize through a beautiful version of Tim's "Sing a Song for You" and Micah P. Hinson offers up a jaunty rendition of Jeff's "Yard of Blonde Girls." The real revelations here are largely with Jeff's tunes, as Tim Buckley's work has been covered quite a bit over the years, most notably on the SING A SONG FOR YOU tribute album, which serves as an excellent companion to this compilation.
