The Bohemians

Before Tim Buckley began his career being a solo artist for Elektra Information, he was an associate of the rock group called the Bohemians, which also included drummer Larry Beckett and bassist Jim Fielder. The Bohemians performed both cover music and original materials, penned with the nascent songwriting group of Buckley and Beckett. Through Jimmy Carl Dark from the Moms of Invention (whom Fielder acquired fulfilled at a studio room in Anaheim), these were presented to Moms supervisor Herbie Cohen, who end up getting Buckley’s supervisor. The Bohemians under no circumstances do put out a list, but they do record some demos, a few of that have been instrumental in sparking Elektra Information chief executive Jac Holzman’s curiosity. Nevertheless, Holzman, and supervisor Herbie Cohen, just needed Buckley the single artist, not really the Bohemians the music group. The demonstration the Bohemians posted to Elektra continues to be reported as including either six tracks or four tracks. Relating to Larry Beckett, the only person of those tracks that was re-recorded for Elektra under Tim Buckley’s name was “SHE ACTUALLY IS” (which shows up on Buckley’s self-titled 1966 debut). Beckett in addition has stated that he includes a distinct tape from the Bohemians with twelve tracks. As Buckley’s cult expands and reissues generally proceed deeper and deeper in to the vaults, maybe Bohemians materials might start to see the light of day time eventually.
