ティム・バックリィはシンガー・ソングライターに分類されるのが一般的です。ただ、1966年12月にデビューし1975年6月29日にヘロインのオーヴァードーズで死亡と活動期間も短く作品も少ないのに、かなり複雑な音楽に挑み変貌し続けたミュージシャンで、僕としてはとっつきにくいイメージがあります。デビュー作のレコーディング中にジェフ・バックリィを妊娠中の妻と離婚していますから、ちょっとジョーシキの通じない人だったのだろうと思います。

本作品は4作目で、初のセルフ・プロデュース作。ティム・バックリィとしては比較的実験色が乏しく穏やかで、評価が決して高くはないアルバムですが、独特の浮遊感に病みつきになっている人も多い模様。

"Blue Afternoon", released in 1969, was Tim Buckley's first self-produced record and his debut for Herb Cohen and Frank Zappa's Straight record label. This was Buckley's fourth album after Tim Buckley, Goodbye and Hello, and Happy Sad. Blue Afternoon used the same group of musicians as Happy Sad, with the inclusion of drummer Jimmy Madison.

Several tracks on Blue Afternoon are songs Buckley had intended to record on earlier albums but had not completed. "Chase the Blues Away" and "Happy Time" are numbers he had worked on in the summer of 1968 for possible inclusion on Happy Sad and demos can be heard on the Rhino label's Works in Progress album.

On Blue Afternoon, Buckley takes the folk song as his starting point and expands it, drawing on jazz influences to create new dynamics and to emphasize atmosphere and mood. During the same four weeks in which he recorded Blue Afternoon, he also recorded its follow-up, Lorca, and material for Starsailor.

Happy Time

Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
When a melody does find a rhyme
Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
Oh, Lord, home to stay
I'm comin' home to stay
Home to stay

Ah, lord, it's just the same old story
Something about love for glory
A nickel and a dime a dozen
Fame
Ah, it's such a shame
Ah, the way they use your name
Ah, you know it's such a shame
When it's only mine to sing a song
Hoping that you'd cross along my way
Before I have to move along
Ah, now move along
Ah, but I'll be back again
Ooh back again

Ah, it's a happy time inside my mind
When a melody does find a rhyme
Says to me I'm comin' home to stay
Oh, Lord, home to stay
I'm comin' home to stay
Home to stay

Sleep late now mama
Let the mornin' sun warm your bed
While I'm away
While I'm away
