Jeff Buckley was a prolific singer/songwriter, always striving for perfection. He would record many of his songs in various styles. Jeff also took time to record a number of songs by the artists who inspired him. Both of these aspects of Jeff's music are encompassed on Grace (Legacy Edition). Disc One features the original album newly remastered for a new sonically rich, crisp sound not heard before. Disc Two features previously unreleased live recordings & material recorded during the Grace sessions, including the highly sought-after track "Forget Her." Grace (Legacy Edition) also includes a bonus DVD featuring a newly expanded version of the original Grace documentary (included on the Live In Chicago DVD), now titled "The Making Of Grace."
Here's what they say about Jeff Buckley: "He died too young." Here's why they say it: Grace
is simply one of the most amazing things you can do with your ears and a little digitally-encoded disc. He inherited the voice of his father, the legendary Tim Buckley
--seven octaves, each of them only just enough to cram his big feverish dreams into--but his music was all his own. Think Van Morrison's Astral Weeks
on drugs--but then drugs could give some kind of comfort, and there's no comfort in Grace
; just constant flux between crippling despair and an almost violent joy. When "Last Goodbye" unfolds its third different bridge of Bollywood strings and Buckley's ecstatic scatting, it's hard to believe an ordinary human could have had a hand in something so extraordinary. Ten years on from its original release, this repackaged "Legacy Edition" 3-disc CD and DVD set really does his legend proud. --Caitlin Moran
