Jeff Buckley – Discography (1994-2011) [FLAC]

Jeff Buckley – Discography (1994-2011) [FLAC]
flac – lossless | 4.93 GB | Alternative Rock, Folk Rock

Since he was the son of cult songwriter Tim Buckley, Jeff Buckley faced more expectations and pre-conceived notions than most singer/songwriters. Perhaps it wasn’t surprising that Jeff Buckley’s music was related to his father’s by only the thinnest of margins. Buckley’s voice was grand and sweeping, which fit with the mock-operatic grandeur of his Van Morrison-meets-Led Zeppelin music. His audacious debut Grace made him one of the most popular alternative artists of the ’90s, accentuated by his early and tragic death in 1997, and his cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” virtually redefined the song for a modern audience.

Buckley began playing while in high school. Eventually, he moved to Los Angeles to study music; while he was there, he performed with several jazz and funk bands, as well as playing with Shinehead, a leader in the dancehall reggae movement. A few years later, he moved to New York, forming Gods & Monsters with the experimental guitarist Gary Lucas. The band became a hip name, yet their lifespan was short. Buckley began a solo career playing clubs and coffeehouses, building up a considerable following. Soon, he signed a record deal with Columbia Records, releasing the Live at Sin-e EP in November of 1993. It received good reviews, yet they didn’t compare to the raves Buckley’s full-length debut, 1994′s Grace, received. Unlike the EP, the album was recorded with a full band, which gave the record textures that surprised some of his long-time New York followers. Nevertheless, it made several year-end “Best of 1994″ lists and earned him a belated alternative hit, “Last Goodbye,” in the spring of 1995.

A long hiatus followed as Buckley worked on material for his follow-up effort, provisionally titled My Sweetheart, The Drunk. Originally slated to be produced by Tom Verlaine, who later dropped out of the project, Buckley finally began work on the record in Memphis during the late spring of 1997. On the night of May 29, he and a friend traveled to the local Mud Island Harbor, where Buckley spontaneously decided to go swimming in the Mississippi River and waded into the water fully clothed. A few minutes later, he disappeared under the waves; authorities were quickly contacted, but to no avail — on June 4, his body was finally found floating near the city’s famed Beale Street area. Buckley was 30 years old. A collection of unreleased recordings, Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk, appeared in 1998, and two live albums arrived during 2000-2001, Mystery White Boy and Live a l’Olympia.

Laura Nyro was one of pop music’s true originals: A brilliant and innovative composer, her songs found greater commercial success in the hands of other performers, but her own records — intricate, haunting works highlighting her singularly powerful vocal phrasing, evocative lyrics, and alchemical fusion of gospel, soul, folk, and jazz structures — remain her definitive artistic legacy.

The daughter of a jazz trumpeter, she was born Laura Nigro on October 18, 1947, and composed her first songs at the age of eight. After attending Manhattan’s famed High School of Music and Art, she began performing in area clubs, drawing on influences as diverse as Bob Dylan and John Coltrane. In 1967, Nyro issued her first LP, More Than a New Discovery; though commercially unsuccessful, the album was a treasure trove of material for other artists — the Fifth Dimension scored with “Wedding Bell Blues” and “Blowin’ Away,” Barbra Streisand covered “Stoney End,” and Blood, Sweat & Tears tackled “And When I Die.”

In 1967, Nyro made just her second major live appearance to date at the Monterey Pop Festival, where her idiosyncratic performance baffled the crowd. However, David Geffen — a music agent at the time — caught her set and was so impressed that he quit his current position to become her manager. He also won Nyro a contract with Columbia, and in 1968 she returned with the extraordinary Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. While the album earned vast critical acclaim, she again found commercial success not with her own recordings, but with covers of Eli’s songs, as the Fifth Dimension reached the charts with renditions of “Stoned Soul Picnic” and “Sweet Blindness,” while “Eli’s Comin’” became a major hit for Three Dog Night.

At the age of 24, Nyro announced her retirement; she married, severed her industry connections, and moved to a small community in New England. However, the marriage ended in divorce, and in 1976 she resurfaced with Smile; a subsequent tour yielded the 1977 live set Season of Lights. However, the long layoff derailed whatever chart momentum her music had accrued, and after the dismal sales of 1978′s Nested, she again retreated from the music business.

When Nyro finally returned from her self-imposed exile in 1984 with Mother’s Spiritual, her music had grown more reserved and introspective; as the title indicated, her own motherhood provided considerable inspiration for her new work, as did her rustic New England lifestyle. While she did not make any overt declarations of retirement, Nyro waited another five years before issuing her next LP, Live at the Bottom Line, recorded at the legendary New York club; Walk the Dog & Light the Light, her first collection of new material in nearly a decade, followed in 1993. Four years later, Nyro died of ovarian cancer, on April 8, 1997. A posthumous album, Angel in the Dark, was issued in 2001, and several additional live recordings also surfaced.

releasenotes

The moment you play this album you see STEPHEN STEINBRINK walking with his
head phones on through a green forest. Or is it you who is walking at the
beach and dreaming away? With Arranged Waves STEINBRINK manages to manipulate
our reality and fly us away on a cloud.

Arranged Waves is easy to listen to. Maybe because of the poppy
superficiality, but there is so much more to this album than one might think
when hitting play for the first time.

STEPHEN STEINBRINK sings about fragile and deep emotions. Melancholically he
tells us stories about love and life. Arranged Waves is a somewhat visual
album, it takes you away to experience your own stories. It’s like the
soundtrack to our daydreaming.

The instrumentation is complex, rhythmic and melodic. A bit synthetic to
complete the dreamlike sequences and tight with guitars and cellos.

Now You See Everything is a song that fits perfectly in your car when you are
driving just to be driving. It seems happy and has a smart melody but their is
a more meaning to it. STEINBRINK is deeply honest and shows his vulnerability
in his lyrics.

Animate Dust starts slower and is a nostalgic tale of wanted chances. Church
bells are ringing in Tangerine and we hear a dialogue. We have the feeling
that we are sitting on a hard church bench, waiting for something to come.
Threatening strings are building up the tention. This tention goes throughout
the song and ends abruptly. Experimental.

The title of Brand New Manic Brain Holder let’s us expect that this is a heavy
song but it sounds exactly like childhood memories should do. A bittersweet
goodbye. It Takes A Lot To Change A Mind starts with a lyrical guitar and is a
real singer-songwriter song. “You can’t give what you take. You can’t keep
what you steal”, STEINBRINK sings.

Last song on the album is Arranged Waves, an instrumental last chapter with
real waves to gently let you wake up and return to reality.

This album brings twisted emotions in a very beautiful wrapped melodic
package. It is a wonderful album to accompany you when we just want to escape
for a bit. Or in your car, so every travel will be like a road trip. STEPHEN
STEINBRINK did not only arrange waves on this album but arranges a setting to
be completely comfortable and at ease. Arranged Waves gives you all the time
in the world to be with yourself and imagine bigger things.

Nickel Creek (2000 – Stylized as NICKELnickel creekCREEK) is an
eponymous album by the acoustic/”newgrass” trio known as Nickel
Creek. The group had released two albums prior to this, however
their earlier albums are no longer in print, and the band
redefined their style before the release of Nickel Creek. As a
result, Nickel Creek is widely regarded as their debut album. It
was released by Sugar Hill Records, and produced by country star
Alison Krauss.
