| Breathtaking, intimate, eclectic and superbly performed!
As something of a hardcore Jeff Buckley fan (which he would have hated), I was really looking forward to seeing and hearing a complete show.

First of all, the opening to "Dream Brother" amazed me. He soared through his vocal range, ululating at every opportunity, and showing how superb his vocal abilities were.

Lovely performances throughout, on the spot improvisation, intimacy on the slower numbers, and aggression on songs such as MC5's "Kick out the Jams". Also, his quick retorts to people asking him to play his father's "Get on top", where they shouted "get on top of me woman", Jeff retorted with "How about get on top of my coffin, woman". His face, showing the immersion in the music, and the passion that could inspire everyone.

My favourite performances are "Mojo Pin", and "lover, you should've come over".

An excellent performance, and nice extras too... shame that the Grace EPK has been extended for the grace legacy edition DVD... but I think this deserves a 10 for quality of DVD, and a 10 for the man behind it.

Thank-you Mary Guibert and Michael Tighe for helping so much with the live CD "Mystery white boy" and the "live in chicago" DVD.

Jeff is sadly missed.
