    Total Playing Time: 68:48

Notes:

    This is a pretty high quality release, overall. The booklet and panels have very nice artwork, the disc itself is tastefully done, as well. The rear panel claims an original soundboard recording. This is probably true for all but the last two tracks, which sound like above-average audience records.

      11.4:31So Real

    Total Playing Time: 64:52

Notes:

    This bootleg was originally pressed by PrimaDonna (the release where the pictures above are scanned from). The identical disc was recently re-released by PiggyPuss, this time in a lower-quality printing, and on a CD-R. The original PrimaDonna release has a slightly higher quality booklet printing, but the PiggyPuss release somewhat nice print on the disc itself.

    The panels for both CDs incorrectly state the forth track to be 'Face,' and the fifth track as 'Corpus Christi Carol.'

    Both CDs are identical in sound quality, tracks and time.



The Last Goodbye
The Last Goodbye inside photo The Last Goodbye rear panel
Tracks 1-9: Glastonbury, U.K., June 24, 1995
Tracks 10-12: Roskilde Festival, Denmark, June 30, 1995

Catalog number:

    CD: 1997 T. Rex Records (TRCD 045)

    Track listing:

      1.9:27Dream Brother
      2.7:53Lover, You Should've Come Over
      3.5:12So Real

      10.6:05Dream Brother
      11.3:58Kick Out The Jams
      12.7:11Hallelujah

    Total Playing Time: 73:23

Notes:

    The rear panel leaves out Eternal Life, stating that there are only 11 tracks. The rear panel also states that this is a soundboard recording. There is a pretty good possibility that it is not, in fact, from the soundboard. The sound quality is simply not that good.

    This was the first of the new breed of CD-R bootlegs. It is somewhat nicely done, with screening on the disc, but, it is a CD-R. Overall, this is not a terrific quality bootleg in sound, printing, or pressing (being that it is a CD-R).

    Total Playing Time: 73:59

Notes:

    The sound quality is among the best of the Jeff Buckley bootleg CDs. This is one of the few that actually may be worth repeated listening.

      9. 6:33Grace
      10. 6:25Eternal Life
      11. 5:19Angel Mine (with Inger Lorre)

    Total Playing Time: 74:05

Notes:

    1998 hand-made bootleg, in an extremely limited, individually numbered pressing of 100.

    The covers of this boot will not be scanned for this page, because the color scheme is black on dark gray, which would not show up at all.

    The sound quality on this disc is acceptable, as well. These tracks sound like they were all either individually re-mixed, or taken from different sources than the other bootleg CDs. There are lows and highs that are not prevalent in previous bootleg pressings of these recordings. Originally, I assumed that the CDs themselves were *not* CD-Rs. I now realize that they are in fact actually pressed from the new breed of CD-Rs. This is still a very high-quality release (IMHO), regardless.

    Not listed on the sleeve, the closing track, "Angel Mine," is taken from the Jack Kerouac tribute album Kicks Joy Darkness. Jeff provided music (on guitar, sitar, and mouth sax), while Lorre did a reading of "Angel Mine." Lorre also contributed guitar and keyboards, and Jeff ended the reading with a vocal ad-lib on the outtro. The track was recorded at Spa Recording Studios, NYC.
