About the Artist

Music On Vinyl is proudly releasing The Jeff Buckley Grace EP's on vinyl for the first time ever! This unique package contains 5 x 180g 12 inch vinyl records each in their own full colour jacket, a double sided full colour insert and a 12mm spined outer sleeve. In the space of one studio album, and a number of recorded live performances, Jeff Buckley managed to carve out a global cult following. With so little studio output available, fans of Jeff Buckley have inevitably been drawn back time and time again to the masterpiece that is Grace, becoming familiar with every detail of every song. The five discs that make up 'The Grace EPs' are a collection of live performances and a few studio versions from songs that appeared on Buckley's seminal debut album. A few b-sides are also included. Indeed two of these ('Peyote Radio Theatre' and 'So Real') were promotional-only releases that weren't commercially available. The others were rare imports: 'Last Goodbye' came out in Japan, 'Live From the Bataclan' in France, and 'The Grace EP' in Australia. Jeff Buckley toured the globe extensively, performing countless shows in support of his music. The Grace EP's capture some of the majesty of his stage presence. So what of the music contained here? First of all this is no skimpy collection - adding up to more than two hours even though there are just three to five songs on each disc. The perfect supplement to the Grace album, it contains live versions (sometimes more than one) of five songs from that record, as well as a few edit versions, a 'Nag Champa Mix' of 'Dream Brother' and a 13- minute live 'Chocolate Version' of 'Mojo Pin'. Perhaps more interesting to collectors will be a few cover tunes not on Grace: a whopping 12-minute version of Van Morrison's 'The Way Young Lovers Do' a medley of 'Je N'En Connais Pas la Fin/Hymne A l'Amour', Hank Williams's 'Lost Highway' and a 14-minute take on Alex Chilton's 'Kanga-Roo'. And there is, finally, a bonus track added to the The Grace EP (the only song in the package not on the original EPs), 'Tongue' a spooky ambient 11-minute studio instrumental. If you're a devoted Buckley-phile, this set is for you. It's beautifully put together, with crisp sound quality in the live performances, and captures Buckley's tremendous flair for stage improvisation. --This text refers to the Vinyl edition.

Format: Audio CD
The tragedy of Jeff Buckley's untimely passing in 1997 meant that one of music's most talented and naturally gifted performers left behind only one completed studio album, (1994's Grace). The last few years have seen a number of posthumous Jeff releases, some noticeably better than others. Now comes this box set that collects together five EP's issued around the world to promote Grace.
Whilst it would be easy to view this release as another attempted cash-in on the Buckley legacy, the EP set is certainly worthy of your attention. Although there are no 'new' songs here, (Kanga-Roo, Lost Highway and Tongue will already be familiar to Buckley devotees), the real find lies in the live performances.
With so little studio output available, fans of Jeff Buckley have inevitably been drawn back time and time again to the masterpiece that is Grace, becoming familiar with every detail of every song. This is arguably exactly what Jeff would not have wanted, for his passion was for live music where his talent could find its fullest expression, unhindered by the requirements of a studio and its producers. So whilst you might ask if anyone really needs three recordings of the tracks Grace and Dream Brother, it would be true to say that Jeff never performed songs the same way twice. The studio releases were never meant to be definitive takes, and that is the beauty of these live renditions.
The only downside with the music here is the 'Live at the Bataclan' EP, which Jeff reportedly detested. Listening again to this CD it is not hard to hear why, with the crowd wildly cheering throughout the performances and detracting somewhat from otherwise great renditions of Hallelujah and The Way Young Lovers Do. Don't let that minor quibble put you off however. These CD's and their accompanying notes are a worthy addition to the Buckley back catalogue and will please fans both old and new who want to be reminded as to why Jeff is so mourned.

As a dedicated Jeff Buckley fan I wouldn't dream of dissing anything made by him. He had a voice of an angel and every time he sang he could lure you into some kind of ecstasy. Inevitably we cannot help but compare him to his father Tim Buckley who both shared the same voice range, looks and talent.
Unfortunately he only released one album "Grace" while he was alive and a few couple of singles hence this Box set. After all this time since the debut album in 1994, the singles have been re-released for those late comers and this in a way should be a treat. This will be released alongside another album full of previously unreleased tracks called "Songs to No One".
But I have to be honest here, for all the work Jeff had done during his lifetime, and for all the songs he had written, not many were recorded and laid on records forever. Hence the inevitable and common B sides. What I mean is, as you can see the B sides are different versions or live versions even of songs from "Grace"...well most of them that is. Though we can say that every time Jeff sang he would lose himself in his music, giving you his very best, could make anybody fall in love with that divine voice. So my opinion would be, if you're not a fan of Jeff get his album "Grace" and these singles and if you already are a Jeff fan and have his album, get them anyway, you need to have as much as you can from that man. You'll have something to make your life better and something that shall "hang inside your soul forever".

Whilst this pack offers nothing new in terms of music for Jeff Buckley fans it is however a great item to have in your collection and brings together all the worldwide E.P releases from the build up to the release of the epic 'Grace' album

The EPs and promos released during the GRACE tour now collected in a box, but nothing essential 9 Nov 2007
By Christopher Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Jeff Buckley released only one album during his lamentably short career, 1994's GRACE, his recorded output is quite large. Part of this is due to the large amount of posthumous releases and re-releases of live material by his estate--which many are starting to feel only diminishes his legacy. But even while Buckley was still with us, Columbia Records released several EPs and promos to bring GRACE to greater attention. This 2002 box set collects five of this small releases together.

PEYOTE RADIO THEATRE was a promotional release directed mainly to Germany in the weeks leading up to the release of GRACE. "Mojo Pin" is the same version as on the album. "Dream Brother" is present in the so-called "Nag Champa mix", a curious ambient version of the song to which Buckley added tabla drums. "Kanga-Roo" is a cover of an old Alex Chilton song which Buckley was especially fond of--he may have first come across it on This Mortal Coil's album It'll End in Tears.

THE GRACE EP is a 1996 commercial release. It contained the album version of "Grace" and unfortunately limpid live performances from the final visit to Australia on tour. The ambient jam "Tongue" was added to this box set; taken from the same Bearsville sessions that produced GRACE, this shows Buckley and his three band members trying to reach a cohesive collaboration.

LAST GOODBYE was a 1995 Sony Japan commercial release. "Last Goodbye" is an edit of the album version. "Mojo Pin" appears in a remarkable 14-minute long live version from a New York City concert, and here Buckley begins with long vocalizations that show inspiration from Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. "Lost Highway" is a cover of the Hank Williams classic. There is fine photography by Hideo Okada on the sleeve, which comes as a nice contrast to the photos that adorn the box and make Buckley look like some kind of teen idol.

LIVE FROM THE BATACLAN was released in 1995, first as a promo and then commercially. It has four live tracks from a February 11, 1995 performance at the Bataclan in Paris. While we don't need an umpteenth live version of "Dream Brother" or "Hallelujah", there are two rare covers. This first is Van Morrison's "The Way Young Lovers Do", which is okay. The second is a medley of the Edith Piaf tunes "Je n'en connais pas la fin" and "Hymne a l'Amour", which are charming though one wishes Buckley had used the original French instead of the clunky English translations. All in all, this EP is more interesting as a document of how much French audiences adored Buckley--the crowd cheers and claps throughout--than for its music.

Finally, SO REAL a.k.a. LIVE AT NIGHTTOWN contains three live tracks from a February 25, 1995 performance in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Few live performances of "So Real" are out there, but we don't need yet another "Grace" or "Dream Brother".

I would recommend this box set only to Buckley completists. There is a lot of Buckley material out there, but in my opinion casual fans need only three items. These are Grace in its original version (the Legacy Edition sounds awful, a victim of the "loudness wars"), the Live in Chicago DVD which has Buckley blending good music with some fine humour, and the Live at L'Olympia import CD, which records the Paris concerts Buckley felt to be the finest performance of his career. You might also want to hear his collaborations with Liz Fraser, long passed around between fans but regrettably not yet released commercially.

Great Compliments to an already brilliant experience. 30 Jun 2003
By Quentin Xavier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
jeff Buckley was a brilliant man. He was passionate, spellbinding and talented beyond bounds. Grace is one of the very best albums I've ever heard. Incredible. These tracks shed a live or demo version of the mastered songs off of grace. they sound awesome. Live presence almost gives it a different feel. Brilliant. This is an essentail for any fan, rabid or casual.

New facets to Grace 4 April 2005
By Constance Dillon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you've never heard Jeff Buckley this is a good place to start. If you think you've heard these songs before, know that each and every performance that Jeff gave was a new reading loaded with passion and rich drama. His brilliant vocals and musicianship make songs sparkle and shine in a new way each time.

Whether he's doing originals or covers Buckley inhabits the material completely. If you've heard "Hallelujah" you understand his talent for making everything he touched blossom and shimmer with his earnestness.

Spend some time listening to Buckley's tranced-out exorcism of Alex Chilton's "Kangaroo". Go with him and let him show you the power of pleasurable obsession.

The performance at the Bataclan was magical. The French adored him, and rightly so. Let him touch you too.

in my opinion a must-have 5 Nov 2005
By emily iversen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It may be a little diffucult for me to write a "neutral" review for the Grace Eps, since i am absolutely obsessed with jeff buckley, but ill do my best.

the Grace Eps are great, of course, its jeff buckley - must be great!

You might not be sure if this box set is worth buying, cuz u might already have heard all the songs and you might think you don't really need more live versions of the Grace songs, cuz "they're probably not much different than the other live versions" And exactly that is NOT true. "The Way Young Lovers Do" is one of the best jeff buckley live performances i have ever heard (and believe me, i have heard a LOT of his live stuff).

Not less amazing is "Mojo Pin - live at Wetlands" this version of mojo pin has a 7 min long intro ("chocolate") and its simply impossible not to loose yourself into the song. Whether you want it or not, your whole body will be taken in by this absolutely amazing version of Mojo Pin.

Not to forget is the instrumental track "Tongue" - a very strange track, but strange in its most beautful way!

Now you're probably thinking that it's not worth buying the box set, just cuz 2 of the songs are amongst the best live recordings of jeff buckley.

But the "Grace Eps" are a must-have for every Jeff Buckley admirer, cuz they're just great.
