Review - Grace: Legacy Edition

Artist: Jeff Buckley

Posted on Thu, Aug 26, 2004 at 4:00 AM

While Jeff Buckley's talents as a vocalist and songwriter were bigger than life before his 1997 drowning, his discography continues to grow, never mind trivial circumstances, like, you know, dying. It was 10 years ago when Buckley's Grace became one of the more influential albums of the '90s, and turned Buckley into a shooting star that faded as quickly as his notoriety exploded. To mark the original album's milestone release, the three-disc Grace: Legacy Edition combines the entire, remastered recording with eight previously unreleased live and studio recordings, including "Dream Brother" with alternative lyrics, and a remake of Bob Dylan's "Mama, You Been on My Mind." While many of these tracks long ago made their way to the Internet (Buckley rarity-swapping is commonplace among hard-core fans), a DVD compilation of videos, live performances and interviews adds weight to this extended reissue.
