One of my favorite Jeff Buckley songs is his cover of Bob Dylan‘s “I Shall Be Released” which can be found in his first edition of “Live in Sin-e'” CD. It’s different from the original tune, and, in my opinion, Jeff’s version is much better.
He also has another recording of this song which he did over the phone when a radio DJ called him up for an impromptu performance. It was beautiful because in the studio were some musicians who were really the guests for the program, and they ended up supporting him with their instruments and vocal harmony – and Jeff, while on the other line, did really really well.
This version was then commercially released as part of the Habitat For Humanities’ New Orleans Benefit CD. I’m trying to look for at least a video that uses it as a music bed so that I can share with you this awesome musical spectacle. Will post it here as soon as I find it.
In the meantime, come, have a taste of the Jeff Buckley in Sin-e’ experience.
