SONY's LEGACY RECORDINGS has launched JEFF BUCKLEY: THE RECORD COLLECTION, TODAY, a new online music destination site offering fans access to the music he loved most. The project has been overseen by the artist's mother, MARY GUIBERT.
This online experience provides an overview of the influences and inspirations that JEFF incorporated into his own music, including "You And I," the recently released collection of his first studio recordings from 1993, now available for streaming and purchase on the site.
Like spending a day with JEFF in his apartment listening to music, the site allows fans to play and share any song from any album in his personal collection via 30-second previews or access to SPOTIFY for full-song playback. On the site, fans can navigate through JEFF's record collection by using arrows and the alphabet. Hovering over album spines reveal album information and the ability to stream music.
Bringing the vinyl and CD experience into the online digital realm, JEFF BUCKLEY'S RECORD COLLECTION offers insight into the creative process that fueled his work while introducing music fans to the incredibly wide range of artists (from BOB DYLAN and MILES DAVIS to NUSRAT FATEH ALI KHAN, NINA SIMONE and ROBERT JOHNSON) and genres (blues, jazz, heavy metal, world music and much more) that informed his art.
