Do we really need another Jeff Buckley book? 27 Oct 2009
By Asgeir Notvik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
the answer is no.

this book features almost nothing new to the myth that was Jeff Buckley. A couple of new interviews from some of his friends is the only thing worth buying this book, so if you're not a hardcore Jeff Buckley, i will rather recommend the detailed and much better written Dream Brother by Browne.

Great book about singer-songwriter by singer-writer 6 Sep 2009
By J. Luis Salmeron Espinosa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I love the music Anthony Reynolds did with his band Jack, and the music he's doing now
(check out "British Ballads", the album he released last year).
I was intrigued about his prose, so I went for this book, and I have truly enjoyed it.
Many times, the first chapters of a biography can be quite boring. Kids are kids,
so the early stages of even a genius can be "too normal" to raise interest. But in this case the figure
of Tim Buckley comes to the rescue, and the author gives a very interesting vision on how little did Tim get to know about Jeff, how little time they shared,
but still how deep the bond between them was and how the ghost of his father would both guide and haunt Jeff.
The ammount of information, even about this teenage years, is overwhelming. Reynolds talked (literally) to everyone and their mothers.
By the time it gets to Jeff moving to New York, you're already hooked on it.
The description of the NY atmosphere in those days is fascinating,
the welsh humour breaking loose now and then
(like when he talks about Jeff's early band, Gods and monsters, saying that Jeff looked like "a God among monsters, or better yet, a prince among plumbers").
The chapters about Jeff signing to a major label and recording "Grace" are specially interesting. As an insider of that industry, and having compiled a huge
pile of data about gear, setlists, recording equipment and sessions, it seems no detail is left unexplained. Once again the battle between music itself
and music industry shows up and is soulfully described.
In the final chapters, the poetic prose raises to top heights, avoiding all trace of morbid details, just focusing on the vanishing of a pure soul
under a starry night.
Amusing, accurate, well documented and emotional.
A must, even if you're not a total fan of the young Buckley.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
He could be, maybe, the best songwriter of the music's history but a river steal us....

Is not the definetely book, but it's a good biography
