"great performance, but he could've at least put some pants on"

The subject line of this mini-post is a comment someone just left on the Tim Buckley video I uploaded on YouTube a while back. In the great fashion-choice-era of the late Sixties, Tim's wearing tight tan corduroys; I never noticed how hilarious that thought makes the performance of an otherwise dang purdy song:

And I ripped the audio awhile back for a pal -- may as well share here too since this is an ace version (better than the album version) of a great song.

Some pants would have been nice.

Pants, no pants,with a voice that Tim had, who cares. Trust me, listen to his catalog, the man COULD SING, Jeez, wonder where his son got his vocal chops from?

Haven't listened to it yet. Is this the same Tim Buckley who did "Buzzin' Fly?"

Man I love that guy's voice.

Just stumbled across this and sadly I have to report that YouTube have yanked the video.

Thank you then for ripping the audio.
It would have been nice to watch but at least I can hear.
