Jeff Buckley Live Set Grace Around the World is Coming
It's hard to believe for those of us who are old enough to have appreciated Jeff Buckley's one and only official studio album, Grace, as a new release, but the seminal album's 15th birthday is rapidly approaching. To mark the occasion, Sony Legacy is set to release Grace Around the World in August. It arrives as a DVD/CD set, featuring live concert and TV performances from 1994-'95 in the U.S., Europe, and Japan, capturing the period when Buckley was still promoting his classic debut album. For those keeping score, this will be the ninth posthumous Buckley release -- he may not have quite reached a Jimi Hendrix level in terms of the career-length-to-discography ratio, but he's getting close. Of special interest to hardcore Buckleyites (i.e. the ones who probably already own all of the aforementioned post-Grace releases), a limited-edition deluxe package will also include an additional DVD containing the documentary Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley.
