Jeff Buckley - Live In Chicago to feature previously unavailable tracks and in-studio footage...
Brand new Jeff Buckley material is to feature on an official live video released in May.
The video is called ‘Jeff Buckley – Live In Chicago’, and was recorded at the Cabaret Metro club in Chicago on May 13 1995. The film depicts the full performance from the night, and features a previously unavailable track, ‘What Will You Say’, as well as material from Buckley‘s debut album ‘Grace’.
The video is also released on DVD format, and will include two exclusive in-the-studio acoustic versions of ‘So Real’ and ‘Last Goodbye’. Both originally featured ‘Grace’.
‘Live In Chicago’ will get its international premiere on May 8 at a special charity screening at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles. After the screening will be a CD launch party for Buckley‘s long awaited live album, ‘Jeff Buckley – Mystery White Boy’.
Tickets for the event are available to the public priced $15 for the screening only, or $35 for the screening and party.
Proceeds from the premiere go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, who provide help to musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability or age-related problems.
Jeff Buckley died in 1997, after drowning in the Mississippi River while recording demos for the follow-up to ‘Grace’. The demos and out-takes were released in 1998 as an album, called ‘Sketches (For My Sweetheart The Drunk)’.
Jeff Buckley’s new live album ‘Mystery White Boy’ is released in the UK on May 8 through Columbia, while the video and DVD, ‘Jeff Buckley – Live In Chicago’, are released a week later on May 15.
