Buckley Videos

For those of you who know, I am a huge Jeff Buckley fan. I recently found the DVD concert he did, and wanted you all to see some stuff by him. Here are a few of his videos, and two electronic press kits that were released by Columbia for the studio releases.

Hs first album for the record label, Grace, was such a huge record in so many different ways. From the diversity of the songs to the fact that his amazing 5-octave vocal range was captured in such a way that even if you didn't really dig his music, his voice commanded your attention and respect.

Jeff had recorded several experimental demo versions of songs that were to be his follow up album to Grace, to be entitled My Sweetheart The Drunk. Tragically, the day before recording was to begin he drowned in Memphis and the album was never recorded. He died at the age of 30, having one solo release under his belt and a handful of demos that were eventually released under the title Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk.

From Grace:

Last Goodbye


So Real

Eternal Life (Live In Chicago)
