Editorial Reviews

When Jeff Buckley drowned in a Tennessee slackwater channel, in 1997, at the age of 30, a generation lost one of its most soulful and erudite musical heroes. It is fitting that his album Grace should receive the royal treatment from Bloomsbury’s superb 33 1/3 series of album biographies. His only studio album, Grace is both an opening salvo and a goodbye whisper to a brief career in song.

Susan Spain’s humble voice is a perfect match for the text, written by Daphne Brooks. Brooks brings high musical knowledge and a deft appreciation for the era in which Grace was released to an essentially personal narrative of her relationship to the great album. This audiobook is a nostalgic and moving journey.

Publisher's Summary

The power and influence of Grace increases with each passing year. Here, Daphne Brooks traces Jeff Buckley's fascinating musical development through the earliest stages of his career, up to the release of the album.

With access to rare archival material, Brooks illustrates Buckley's passion for life and hunger for musical knowledge, and shows just why he was such a crucial figure in the American music scene of the 1990s.

Rock on: listen to more of the 33 1/3 series.
