Get ready for a whole lot more of Jeff Buckley.
The late musician’s estate is honoring him in a major way with a massive digital reissue of his catalog.
The reissue marks the 25th anniversary of Buckley’s debut album, Grace. The reissue will include four complete live albums: Live at Wetlands, New York, NY 8/16/94, Live From Seattle, WA, 5/7/95, Cabaret Metro, Chicago, IL, 5/13/95, and his Live at Columbia Records Radio Hour performance from June 1995, as well as his studio releases Grace and Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk.
“The music industry has made a couple of sea changes since Jeff departed the planet,” Buckley’s mother Mary Guibert said in a statement. “I don’t know if he foresaw even a glimpse of the current state of affairs. Since all we have of his true remains is what’s in ‘the vault,’ I’m thrilled that we can finally fling open the doors of that vault and make as much as possible available to Jeff’s fans: the old ones and the new ones, and the ones who have not yet been born.”
The massive digital expansion of over 50 tracks is set for August 23.
