Tim Buckley & Band Members – Signed Documents From ’68 Marijuana Arrest
Two original affidavits signed by Tim Buckley and two of his band members relating to their arrest for possession of marijuana in Philadelphia on December 12, 1967, along with a cover letter from the lawyer representing them. According to the book “Dream Brother: The Lives and Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley,” Tim was arrested the night of his show at the club Trauma. He was jailed, but was released in time to play the show. He later faced trial, but was acquitted. These affidavits are Petitions To Surpress Evidence; asking the judge to drop the case as the seizure of evidence was illegal. One is signed by Buckley as “Timothy Buckley” and the other by his band members Carter C.C. Collins and Edward Lee Underwood (aka Lee Underwood.) Each is two pages, and the cover letter signed by lawyer Herbert L. Ocks (it is addressed to Morton Cohen, Esq., the lawyer/brother of Buckley manager Herb Cohen.) This is the first Tim Buckley signature we’ve ever had the pleasure to offer, and the first we’ve ever seen with his full name. These documents came from the estate of Buckley manager Herb Cohen; and as with everything we offer, they are guaranteed authentic with no time limit. Extremely rare and desirable.
