Jeff's version of Strange Fruit on live at sin-è is also really good.

Tiers up.

Didn't he do a couple of Van Morrison covers as well as those Dylan ones? His cover of "I Shall Be Released" as another Dylan cover is good too.

All his covers are great, especially cause they're not the usual cover choices and they're all very understated. This one of Strange Fruit is awesome:

I usually don't like singers have "clean" voices and do a lot of vocal theatrics, but for whatever reason I haven't been able to stop listening to Jeff and Tim the past couple weeks.

Edit: Question for any singers: Is Tim a baritone or is he not quite that low? He seems to go pretty low at points but I can't tell if just his range/power or whatever allows him to go lower than most people in his range usually can.

As far as I know he was a light tenor with an excellent control of his resonators. Basically he could darken his voice so well he often sounded like a Baritone.

Kinda depends on my mood whether I prefer Jeffs more free and loose style or Tim's structure and control.

Tim's insanely wild when he lets it rip though .... jeff tries to distance himself from his father, but its bloody evident that apart from Plant, he was quite influenced by Tim as well .....

People should listen to Starsailor in entirety to know what Tim is all about when it comes to vocals ....easily one of the most technically difficult vocal albums of all time .... more so possibly than his son's Grace ....

Starsailor is usually regarded as one of the most difficult and unusual albums in all of rock. That assessment is certainly true – the record contains a host of songs that takes many listens to become accustomed to. The title track, with it’s eerie, unnerving opening, it emblematic of the whole album. Indeed, it certainly can be seen as an ambitious failure. “Star Sailor” is certainly atmospheric, but it’s convoluted, bizarre vocal is pretentious, and totally unrewarding. “Star Sailor” sounds like a slowed down record; what effect Buckley was trying to achieve here is hard to comprehend. Indeed, it’s probable that he was just being wilfully perverse. Nevertheless, “Star Sailor” sounds to modern ears to be a rather silly mistake from an artist whose ambitions for once got the better of him.
