Product Description
 
Jeff Buckley made only one album, but the one he made has proved to be seminal. His talent awed industry giants and moved the hearts of fans spanning generations. But Buckley's untimely death in 1997 left his fans to wonder about all the sonic magic that could have been.

Photographer Merri Cyr was there along the way. She has documented Buckley's career from his days at the East Village coffee shop Sin-e to his iconic Grace cover shoot to his rigorous tour around the world as he promoted his unprecedented debut. In 25 Years of Grace, Cyr joins forces with Jeff Buckley biographer Jeff Apter to produce an illustrated tribute to this classic album in celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary.

The book features brand new interviews with Buckley insiders, revealing the details about Buckley's signing to a major label, the songwriting process and final song selections, key meetings and collaborations, recording techniques, memorable moments in the studio and more. The book also includes reflections about Buckley and Grace from an array of music artists.

Lavishly illustrated with many never-before-seen photographs, 25 Years of Grace takes a fresh look at the making and legacy of this classic album.Jeff Buckley made only one album, but the one he made has proved to be seminal.
