Tim Buckley DVD on the way

From the NME, news of a forthcoming Tim Buckley DVD (and a related previous post here with Jeff Buckley audio).

Tim Buckley performances DVD revealed
A DVD featuring a collection of performances of Tim Buckley is set to be released in May. Featuring rare live performances from various television shows and interview footage spanning his career from 1967 to 1974, 'My Fleeting House' also includes 11 songs and interviews with Lee Underwood, who was Buckley's guitarist, and Larry Beckett, who co-wrote many of his songs.

Over the course of his career, Buckley (father of the late Jeff Buckley) incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, and avant-garde rock into his sound. He died in 1975, aged 28, from a mixture of heroin and alcohol. 'My Fleeting House' will be released on May 15.

Last March I uploaded this Tim Buckley video to YouTube after reading about the moment in Dream Brother: The Lives and Music of Jeff & Tim Buckley and subsequently scouting out the video clip online. It has blown me away how many people are still interested in viewing this performance -- over 50,000 so far! And some pretty passionate comments, too . . . A magnetic performance.

Hi there -- occasional reader, first time poster. You wouldn't happen to have an MP3 version of the Monkees version of "Song To The Siren", would you? Thanks for the info!
