Browse Jeff Buckley’s record collection
New website, built with permission from the late singer-songwriter’s family, lets you peruse his vinyl collection – and play the records
If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably wondered at some point what’s on your favourite artist’s own record or CD shelves. Well, if you’re a fan of the late Tim Buckley you’re in luck, because his entire record collection has been digitised and made available to browse and stream online.
The site, Jeffbuckleycollection.com, has been put together by Sony Legacy Music in collaboration with the late star’s mother, Mary Guibert. Click the link and you’ll be taken to virtual vinyl shelves: drag your mouse along the shelves to browse artists and titles, or click on a particular album to hear the music streamed in MP3 format.
As you’d expect, singer-songwriters like Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello and Leonard Cohen feature heavily. But so do punk, indie and alt-rock faves such as Fugazi, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Jane’s Addiction; so too does jazz, with Miles Davis and Charlie Mingus particularly well represented; and so too, perhaps more suprisingly, do Genesis and Queen.
Jeff Buckley, son of 60s/70s avant-folk legend Tim Buckley, died by drowning in 1997, aged just 30.
