Rare Jeff Buckley recordings, live albums, and bonus tracks to be released online
Always missed, never forgotten. A phenomenal talent.
The list of albums throughout history without 'weak' tracks on them is finite, but Grace by Jeff Buckley is most definitely on that list.
Even though affiliated with the singer's tragic death, Buckley's 1994 debut is one of those albums that continues to relate to new audiences years on.
Aside from having a voice that God would be jealous of, Buckley was an excellent guitarist who had the ability to break your heart and get your adrenaline pumping in one sitting.
Rightfully hailed by critics and listeners as one of the greatest albums of all time, the real tragedy of Grace is that it's the only studio album Buckley left us with.
To mark its 25th anniversary, Jeff Buckley’s entire catalogue will be reissued on streaming services.
Fans will also be able to listen to bonus tracks, rare recordings, and four complete live albums: Live at Wetlands, New York, NY 8/16/94, Live From Seattle, WA, 5/7/95, Cabaret Metro, Chicago, IL, 5/13/95, and his Live at Columbia Records Radio Hour performance from June 1995.
Buckley's studio releases Grace, Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk, and the live album, Mystery White Boy, will also be reissued with international bonus tracks and additional rarities.
Among the new rarities is one of Buckley’s final demos, 'Sky Blue Skin', which will be officially released for the first time. They all hit streaming on 23 August.
If you ever needed an excuse to be reacquainted with the phenomenal Jeff Buckley, this sounds like the perfect chance.
