This review is from: Complete Live At Sine [2CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of Jeff Buckley since 1994 when his only studio album Grace was released. This live album was recorded between his signing with Columbia and Grace. It was originally released as a four track "Live AT Sin-e" EP. It showcased his brilliant vocal range and original interpretation of classics as well as a taster of his own compositions. This Legacy Edition of the Sin-e recordings not only gives you early versions of Grace and Last Goodbye but is an astonishing insight to Jeff Buckley's musical
tastes that ranged from Led Zeppelin to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and everything in between. It gives you a real sense of being there with his infectious sense of humour shining through and he makes the cover versions sound new and fresh with his own original take on classics such as Sweet Thing by Van Morrison and Nina Simone's If You Knew. If you ever wished you could see him live but never got the chance you have now because this will be the closest you will ever get to experience the genius that was Jeff Buckley.
