Jeff Buckley died tragically at just 30 years old, but during his relatively short career he had a profound impact on the music landscape. Much to his fans' delight, an album of unreleased studio recordings titled You and I. Above, you can listen to Buckley's cover of Bob Dylan's 1966 song "Just Like a Woman."
Buckley reworks the Blonde On Blonde track to suit his style, which is very powerful and emotional. This stripped down version features Jeff on electric guitar, playing the song with a clean tone. Standing at the forefront is Buckley's vocal that comes across as sincere, with a hint of longing.
You and I will feature other popular songs that Buckley recorded solo, including Sly & The Family Stone's "Everyday People," The Smiths' "I Know It's Over," and Led Zeppelin's "Night Flight." You can listen to his take on "Everyday People" on his YouTube. His management has shared this description:
You and I is an album featuring previously unheard outside the studio, these seminal recordings are a fan's Holy Grail, a rare opportunity to hear Jeff Buckley in peak form, developing his artistry through a series of spellbinding solo performances, each one captured in pristine sonic detail.
Pick up You and I on Amazon. The official release date is March 11, 2016.
