Jeff Buckley is the epitome of beauty hidden behind a dark wall of pain. He was a gem that we had for a very short period of time, and we were quickly stripped of his gentle voice and intricate guitar playing. Yet, Buckley left behind loads of unreleased music that had been being released in small doses over the years.
His upcoming posthumous release, You and I, will be coming out March 16th, and will include many covers from The Smiths, Led Zeppelin, Sly & The Family Stone, and this just-released cover of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like A Woman” recorded in 1993. For all the Bobby D fans out there, you will be happy to know that this cover does not take away from the song and Buckley elevates the great things about it. Although, it’s not the scraggly voice we expect, Buckley puts his spin on it and makes you feel every lyric flow through your veins. He does his best to achieve the same effect on people that the live bootleg version does with Mr. Dylan himself.
