Most live albums are usually a pretty tawdry affair, blighted by the whoops and catcalls of a teeming mass of drunken humanity. But Mystery White boy, taken from Buckley's eight-month world tour of the same name, is not just any old live album. Such was the reverence granted to Buckley's electrifying confessionals that hardly a whimper issued from the audience in 78 minutes--not, at least, until each gargantuan heart-and-soul epic ended. Buckley was no small-time singer songwriter--he treated music like it was epic Shakespearean tragedy, and it's this grandiosity of performance that makes "Grace" and "Mojo Pin" at least the equal of their recorded counterparts. The gems, though, are the cover versions found here--especially the closing nine-minute rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" that lurches into a whispered chorus of the Smiths' "I Know It's Over" as it passes away. This is an utterly captivating live album. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars the man that got away! 8 Oct 2003
By DT
Format:Audio CD
Jeff's one, completed solo album 'Grace' is the only album i have ever bought in memory that i loved from first listen yet still grows on me even now. The only disappointment is knowing what might have been if his tragic loss had not occured. However, its not all doom and gloom when you dig into the releases after his death which although may be somewhat a consolation to his death it is also a great tribute to the man.
For example, 'sketches for my sweetheart the drunk' illustrates what he was working one just before his death (which in places is mind blowing) and then there are live albums of which 'mystery white boy' is up there with the best.
Jeff was an explosive performer, one never to do a song in the same way and often with his band never knowing what it was going to sound like, only looking to their inspirational leader. The results are fantastic. Songs from grace such as 'mojo pin', 'last goodbye', 'lilac wine' sound fantastic in a different light to their recorded versions. This is alongside his selection of covers of which i think 'what will you say' is the pick of the bunch; heart breaking!
Jeff composition, not on grace 'i woke up.....' is a great song which further shows his songwriting ability and his skills as a performer. His vocal range is one ive never ever heard before from an artist and any fan of 'grace' must own a live album to really fulfil the experience of what Jeff's music was about.
Ending on 'Hallelujah' which also encorporates the smiths classic 'i know its over' ends the album beautifully. As far as live albums go, this is up there with the best. It successfully leads to appreciation for talents as a performer and leaves you in the same position after listening to grace; mourning the loss of such a under rated legend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buckley at his most captivating 10 May 2000
Format:Audio CD
These live performances, taken from the late Jeff Buckley's 'Hard Luck' and 'Mystery White Boy' tours in '95 and '96, provide fans like me with an insight into how Jeff's music, and inparticular his remarkable voice, transfered from the studio to a stage set-up. And believe me, the result is everything I expected from a talent as unique as Buckley's.
From the atmospheric opening of "Dream Brother" you are putty in Jeff's hands.
Having heard many Buckley live offerings before on previous CD singles, I was expecting to hear the same "live" versions of these songs. But NO, Jeff gives a different performance for each song. "Eternal Life" is brilliantly beefed up with some superb guitar.
Previously unreleased songs "I woke up in a strange place" "What will you say" "Moodswing Whiskey" and "The man that got away" all sit well amongst Jeff favourites. But Jeff's performance of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" with The Smiths "I know its Over" steals the show. Truely magnicent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique 12 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
I edged backwards into listening to Jeff Buckley, expecting something far less mature,thoughtful and lyrical. But this live album is just as good as Grace, an album as much for musicians as anyone else.
The heart of Buckley's extraordinary gift was his intuitive understanding of dynamics - and the way the songs growl, whisper, lope and slam are utterly intriguing. Mojo Pin is still the track that says it all, but there are some awesome performances. If he's new to you, try the studio album first, and then put this on. It is an astonishing, luminous declaration of intent. How sad that we never got to hear chapter two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buckley's other face 6 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
This live album shows you what kind of a musician Buckley was too. When in the studio, he used all the advantages studios offer, searching for well-crafted heartfelt arrangements. But live, it was all about rock 'n roll, power, instinct, guts, dynamics and guitars. He sounded like he fought with his demons right there on the stage. Awesome, scary in a way too. Anyway, "Sketches..." proves that he wanted to rock more.
Jeff's live albums are a must. Because that was what he sounded like too, what he felt like live.

5.0 out of 5 stars There aren't enough stars in the Universe 25 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
Inspiring. Frightening. Colossal. Graceful. Glorious. Gargantuan - and that's just "Dream Brother", the opening number of this collection of awesome live material, as selected by Jeff's mother and former band mates.

In truth, you cannot describe an album as good as this - you have to listen to it and spend a lifetime letting it sink in. Had this breath taking collection included the version of "Lover You Should Have Come Over" featured on "Live a L'Olympia", then surely many would have been mortally wounded by the over-whelming power of its ecstacy. Jeff's version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", wrapping its naked legs around an incredibly emotional rendering of The Smiths classic "I Know its Over", will tear at the finest string of your gasping heart.

Some have said that Jeff Buckley was plucked from this world by God, but on listening to this album, I really don't think so; the competition would surely have proved too much.

This is an astounding body of work and don't let anyone try to convince you otherwise.

2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid! 25 Mar 2010
By Dobbins
Format:Audio CD
As a fairly big Jeff Buckley fan I bought this with high hopes, especially with the idea that anything his mother allowed to be released posthumously would be excellent. But no. First of all, the sound quality is CRAP! These songs were never recorded with commercial release in mind and they should not have been released, the normally brilliant Grace just sounds like a horrible murky mess. Secondly, it is cobbled together with little thought and the version of Last Goodbye is actually nicked from the Live at Olympia gig! which is why it isn't on that CD! Unbelievable. Thirdly, there isn't actually anything on this CD to get excited about - unless 9 minutes of Hallelujah/the Smiths' I know It's Over floats your boat.

So, unless you are the hardcorest of hardcore Jeff Buckley fans, save your money and just buy Grace, Live at Sin-e and the Live in Chicago DVD.
