Jeff Buckley CD/DVD "Grace World Tour" Review


On a scale of one to ten, I give a twenty! I listened to the CD on a recent flight and as always, listening to Jeff gives me chills. If you like his music, this is a must have for your collection. The DVD includes 120 minutes of concert footage, a documentary on Jeff and his fans, interviews, etc. I have not watched it all yet because I am savoring it a little bit at a time.

Here is some of the official press release:
Nearly fifteen years ago, the world was introduced to a young singer/songwriter from New York named Jeff Buckley. His debut album Grace became one of the most acclaimed and influential albums of his generation. To promote the album, Jeff and his band embarked a seemingly un-ending tour - taking them all over the globe from 1994 to 1996. Because the album had no "hit single", Jeff was constantly tinkering with his setlists - both on stage and on TV. He therefore performed almost every track from Grace at least once in his many appearances on local broadcasts around the globe. Now, for the fi rst time, the very best of those performances have been tracked down and compiled into the definitive audio/visual document of the Grace world tour.

I have GOT to paint Jeff. Just wish I could find an album for under $50.

For my wife and I, it's his covers and fun radio outtakes that are just amazing.

I bought this also, really like it. You might think that all these years after his death that it might be a "scraping the bottom of the barrel" thing. But it isnt, very good stuff. Highly recommended .

I bought that too! I wasn't quite as impressed, because I've heard these songs so many times before, but I do like the DVDs. The new version of "Mojo Pin" is aces too.

My review can be found here.

If you haven't already done so, check out his Live at Sin-E concert CD. It's just him and his guitar.
