In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Grace, I have created the definitive Jeff Buckley Sampler. If you are not familiar with Jeff Buckley, give a listen to the incredible, incendiary, simply haunting vocals on this playlist. His songs are amazing, but equally impressive are his interpretations of covers like "The Way Young Lovers Do", "Night Flight", "Just Like A Woman", and "I Shall Be Released."

Among the most important albums to be released in the 1990s, an expanded edition of Grace was released by Columbia Records this week. Named as one of Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time," it was the only full-length album actually issued during Buckley's lifetime, and has sold over 2 million copies. Buckley died from drowning at age 30 while floating fully clothed, singing down the Mississippi River. His body was never found, he simply vanished. In my opinion, it is important to wiegh Grace with the young, raw energy of Jeff's first foray, playing Live at Sin-e (also available from Sony in a Legacy Edition). - TK

Good to read of someone who is so into JB.

don't know where u got that impression that he just vanished as its clearly stated everwhere that his body was found. there is TV footage of it.
