Editorial Reviews

Long rumored to exist as the "Addabbo sessions", but previously unheard outside the studio, these seminal recordings are a fan's Holy Grail, a rare opportunity to hear Jeff Buckley in peak form, developing his artistry through a series of spellbinding solo performances, each one captured in pristine sonic detail.

Recently discovered in the Sony Music archives during the research for the 20th anniversary edition of Buckley's Grace album, the performances on You and I are a revelation, an intimate portrait of the artist performing a variety of cover songs and original music expressing a range of emotion channeled through his singular sensibility.

The songs on You and I reveal, in part, the eclectic scope of Jeff Buckley's extraordinary musical tastes and abilities. The covers on the album include Jeff's highly personal interpretations of songs written by Bob Dylan ("Just Like a Woman"); Sylvester Stewart ("Everyday People," recorded by Sly & the Family Stone); Joe Green ("Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cryin'," recorded by Louis Jordan, Ray Charles and others); Bob Telson ("Calling You," recorded by Jevetta Steele for the 1987 film Bagdad Café); Morrissey and Johnny Marr ("The Boy with the Thorn in His Side" and "I Know It's Over," recorded by the Smiths); Booker T. Washington "Bukka" White ("Poor Boy Long Way from Home," from a 1939 "field" recording made by John Lomax) and John Paul Jones/Jimmy Page/Robert Plant ("Night Flight," recorded by Led Zeppelin).

Rounding out You and I are two pieces of original music: the first-ever solo studio recording of his signature song, "Grace" and "Dream of You and I," a mysterious and haunting piece which informs the deeply intimate and profoundly personal mood of the album.

These 10 tracks offer an incredible, rare glimpse of an artist, alone, in the sacred space that is the studio. There's an intimacy and an honesty to the performances that's literally breathtaking. You & I is an important addition to Jeff's recorded legacy and will be a thrill for both his devoted longtime fans and newcomers alike.

I thought this album was really good stuff Jeff Buckley was a promising talent 20 years ago but died in an accident. This entire album is tracks he recorded as demos for Sony Music back before he had a recording contract. Sony just found these recordings and compiled them into this album. These are the sample songs Buckley recorded to show he had talent. Listening to them, it's pretty hard to argue with that talent. He's been STRONGLY influence by blues music and just the genre justice.

It's a mix of covers of more famous songs and original works...because that's often what you do when you're demoing for a record company.

"Just Like A Woman" - A cover of the Bob Dylan son. Right from the start of the album, this song made me feel like I was relaxing in a small bar listening to a band and just quietly listening to the lyrics. It's the kind of music you don't want to sing along to or rock out with. You just want to sit and let it soak it. It hooked me and convinced me to listen to the rest of the album.

"Everyday People" - A cover of the classic by Sly and the Family Stone. Funny thing is...and don't hate me on this...but I never liked the sound of the original. I always liked the lyrics but never the sound. But I REALLY liked Jeff Buckley's cover of it. It's that quiet slow melodic tone, which is a huge departure from the original that was jazzy and up tempo. Buckley makes this his own. It changes it from a party song to a deep meaningful song without changing the lyrics. (The lyrics are pretty powerful in their simplicity about coexistence. But in the original fast paced version I always felt that got lost)

"Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin" - A cover of Ray Charles. This is straight blues. Period. It's Buckley and a guitar.

When you see multiple Smiths covers on a collection like this you know you're in for a treat. Buckley kills "I Know It's Over" and I can see this recording sparking a wave of cover performances across the country. Buckley's voice is as silky and sad as it ever was but it can also explode powerfully as he hits his high register. I would have loved to have seen how his voice would have evolved over the past 20 years had he not tragically died. I think he would have been HUGE, not that he's not well known already.

Many of Jeff's uniquely introspective sensitive guitar intros are on this CD. The transcription recording quality is excellent, and conveys a real
sense of Jeff's presence. Jeff never played a song as a repetitious canned performance; every time he appeared or recorded it was always
an act that created anew the essence of the music, as is reflected on this recording . Listening to this is truly a beautiful, if somewhat sad/bittersweet emotional experience for those of us who truly miss Jeff. I feel no need to pointlessly describe individual tracks, music must be listened to-not spoken about-and you will need to listen to and enjoy these
I know of no musician as merged with his guitar or who has so consistently intertwined his guitar with his unbelievable vocal range, nuance, and sensitivity.
This is a timeless, welcome and worthwhile recording.

First of all, I gave this 4 stars because if this was 5, what would Grace be? 6? 8? 93? Who wasn't blown away by Grace? Anyone? Following its release Buckley toured for 3 years and then he was gone. An increasing proliferation of recorded concert dates and radio interviews and such have become available on youtube and so forth. And they've all given us some experience of Buckley but often the quality has been poor. While these tracks are just "demos", they were legit studio recordings and the quality is good. And they are SO intimate, it's like having him in the room with you. What I miss are the complex arrangements and Gary Lucas's guitar contributions on Grace. And of course it gives us no insight at all into what he might have produced if he hadn't gone for that evening swim (his band was supposed to arrive to begin recording the Next Day, I think), but it's Buckley and it's good, very good, Turn it up loud.

Where did this come from? A lost tape? this is a gift from the higher power. Listen to this and fall in Love with this long lost genius who disappeared into the mighty Mississippi River. My great regret in life was not walking into Sin e to see him perform on a hot summer night in NYC. This makes me happy

As a Buckley fan from the beginning, these tracks are true gems. So thankful they are shared and in its true form. His pure, musical talent just radiates here and will continue to amaze me.

What can I say, it's Jeff Buckley. This is an album full of demos and anyone new to Buckley might not get it, but for the fans of Buckley it's yet another treasure. Check out Jeff's voice breaking at the end of Night Flight... it's hilarious.
