Random Acts of Music
I discovered Jeff Buckley a few years ago and immediately regretted not knowing about him earlier. He left behind an immense and extremely devoted fan base upon his untimely death in 1997. If you haven't heard his album, Grace, I suggest that you make it the very next cd you purchase (after, of course, you call all of your friends in hopes of acquiring a copy). He was heralded as one of the greatest contemporary songwriters by all-time greats including Neil Pert, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.
Although his cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is devastatingly beautiful, I think this song, "Lover, You Should've Come Over," reveals the degree to which Buckley was not only a master lyricist, but one seriously soulful performer and individual.
Here he is performing live in Chicago. Sorry, no date included in the youtube blurb. Please enjoy at your leisure:
