BUCKLEY'S COUP DE GRACE!
The late star's mum Mary Guibert reveal another live album is scheduled for release in France...
In an e-mail sent to the official Jeff Buckley mailing list, his mother Mary Guibert revealed she has been approached by the late singer's French label Sony France to put together an album, titled 'Live a l'Olympia'.
The record will be released initially in France on June 18. Press reports suggest the album will be released in Australia also, although a UK spokesperson for the singer was unavailable to confirm whether the record will be released in the UK. It is likely that the album, which will also feature video footage as a CD-rom, will be made available via Buckley's official website www.jeffbuckley.com.
The album will feature ten tracks taken from a Buckley show at the Olympia concert hall in Paris. In addition to songs from his acclaimed debut album 'Grace', the record will also feature a cover of MC5's classic 'Kick Out The Jams'.
As a bonus, 'Live a l'Olympia' will also feature the rare track 'What Will You Say?', recorded in St. Florent-le-Vieil as a duet with Azerbaijani Mugham singer, Alim Quasimov.
The confirmed tracklisting is: 'Lover, You Should Have Come Over'
'Kick Out The Jams'
'That's All I Ask'
'Je N'en Connais Pas La Fin'
'What Will You Say?'
Buckley drowned in May 1997 after going for a swim in the Mississippi River in Memphis, while recording his second album. Material recorded at the time was eventually released on the 1998 posthumous album '(Sketches For) My Sweetheart The Drunk'. A live album was also released last year, titled 'Mystery White Boy'.
