Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Mystery White Boy, culled from Jeff Buckley's eight-month world tour of the same name, is not just another live album blighted by whoops and catcalls. Such was the reverence granted the ill-starred singer-songwriter's electrifying confessionals that hardly a whimper issues from the audience in 78 minutes--not, at least, until each gargantuan heart-and-soul epic ends. Buckley treated music like it was Shakespearean tragedy, and that grandiosity makes the live "Grace" and "Mojo Pin" at least the equal of their recorded counterparts. The gems, though, are the cover versions found here--especially a closing nine-minute rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" that lurches into a whispered chorus of the Smiths' "I Know It's Over." Ultimately, this posthumous collection is utterly captivating. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Why buy another Jeff Buckley CD? June 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you own Grace, aren't prone to purchasing an artist's entire collection, and may not be partial to live albums why click to order this CD?
Because each track is a showcase of Buckley's uninhibited, without apology, take it or leave it songwriting, interpretation, and rendering. Because it is clear producers Michael Tighe and Mary Guibert really worked to construct and produce a better than "best of" live experience. Because audience clutter serves to enhance rather than detract, adding to the emotion Buckley hurls from himself and wrenches from the listener, starting with Dream Brother, perhaps climaxing on Eternal life, and ending breathlessly with Hallelujah/I Know it's Over medley. Or perhaps simply because of the little gem in The Man That Got Away, an Arlen-Gershwin song.
Mystery White Boy is a gift for those of us who never saw Jeff Buckley and his band live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buckley....once again, forever May 15, 2000
By APM
Format:Audio CD
Jeff Buckely's is one of real triumph over death. The tragic loss of the young, soon-to-be- household name came at a time when the world was just discovering his music. This is a live album that is unusual in its feel because you can hear a pin drop while the album plays. The audience treats the songs with the reverence of prayer in a cathedral and Buckley's voice rises to the roof like some ancient spirit showing itself to remind us of its otherworldly power. The intense delivery of Big Star's "Kangaroo" and the haunting "Dream Brother" are poignant reminders of just how Buckley's voice was not so much a physical talent...it bordered on being a natural force. Again, Buckley's voice swells like a fearsome tide for "Grace" and settles for the beatific "Hallelujah". This is a live album that shouldn't be missed if you are a fan of Buckley...and certainly one you should catch if you are looking to get a feel for the magnetism and presence of a performer who left us too soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devastatingly beautiful May 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
While writing a review I try to be as honest as I can and to maintain a certain composed manner. That is to say that I try to be objective without letting my personal feelings be too evident.However, if I'm writing about Jeff Buckley I just cannot avoid speaking as a passionate fan. This new live album makes all your defense mechanisms fall apart.How can you restrain yourself from saying what you feel about this music if Buckley himself was so honest in the way he communicated with the audiences? This album show us how impressive he could be while playing live, making you come to terms with all those grey areas in your soul that you desperately try to avoid. However, from this confrontation you also come out renewed. Jeff Buckley makes you feel like opening your heart, walk on the street and cry outloud all your emotions, say the words you were not capable of... and scream: I'm alive and this is the way I feel! One particular aspect of this superb collection of live performances is how alive they seem. This becomes particularly disturbing when you think that although he died, he feels so alive. These performances clearly show Jeff in all his humanity, his musicality, his honesty, his dignity, his total engagement to music. Wonderfully conceived in technical and artistic terms, this album has love in every inch of it. Extraordinary mum, who made this album come true.I can only say that it is a privilege to have been touched by Jeff's music. He lives within us, forever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Suffers in comparison to other Buckley live releases November 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The live disc MYSTERY WHITE BOY consists of twelve tracks selected from Jeff Buckley's 1995 tour, mixed together to sound like a single concert. I found the release disappointing, especially in contrast to the superior DVD release LIVE IN CHICAGO and the import LIVE AT L'OLYMPIA.
About the only great thing I can say about MYSTERY WHITE BOY is that it has great sound. Whilst the audience is hardly audible, the performance is consistently clear.
Jeff Buckley was one of the greatest musicians of the 90's, but when I first heard MYSTERY WHITE BOY I couldn't help but feel that it was a collection of some of his worst moments. Buckley's cover of Alex Chilton's "Kanga Roo" lacks passion, while the version on LIVE IN CHICAGO stands out as one of his most innovative performances. The version of "Grace" here is the weakest we have, and is difficult to listen to after hearing the savagely beautiful L'Olympia rendition. Furthermore, the disc lacks "Lover, you should have come over", a great tune from GRACE which appears on all other live releases.
If you want to hear a superb live recording from Jeff Buckley, I'd recommend getting LIVE AT THE L'OLYMPIA, a recording of a single Paris evening in 1995 which Buckley considered his finest performance. If you want visuals and lots of on-stage banter, LIVE IN CHICAGO is what you're looking for. MYSTERY WHITE BOY is only for completists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another live album... May 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
In the tradition of fallen rock stars,Mary Guibert (Jeff's mother)released the post-humus"Scetches" to crtical acclaim,as well as the scorn from his former band mates(Jeff had scraped the Sketches sessions).But that was then,now for "Mystery White Boy",Micheal Tighe;Jeff's former guitarist,has come aboard to help sift,and compile a wonderful compilation of his 95-96 tour.Having seen Jeff myself live,all I can say is that this best represents everything amazing,magical,and truly unique about him.And what's best about this album,is that it's really more than another live album,it's a testament of what's missing more and more in the music of today:passion,pure unadulterated passion.And the inclusion of three new songs,just makes it all the better.This album is a must!My only complaint is that the Australian version includes an extra disk,of unreleased tracks that would have made this version even better,but I guess the die-hard will have to buy the import.Other than that,a small complaint, Mary has done a fine job of assuring her son's legacy,not falling down that dark path of post-humus second-rate recordings we've seen happen through the years,ie Hendrix,the Doors,etc...This album is a triumph,as well as sad tragedy,as it reminds us of what was,and what could have been...

5.0 out of 5 stars wild and raw
