Audible Editor Reviews

When Jeff Buckley drowned in a Tennessee slackwater channel, in 1997, at the age of 30, a generation lost one of its most soulful and erudite musical heroes. It is fitting that his album Grace should receive the royal treatment from Bloomsbury’s superb 33 1/3 series of album biographies. His only studio album, Grace is both an opening salvo and a goodbye whisper to a brief career in song.
Susan Spain’s humble voice is a perfect match for the text, written by Daphne Brooks. Brooks brings high musical knowledge and a deft appreciation for the era in which Grace was released to an essentially personal narrative of her relationship to the great album. This audiobook is a nostalgic and moving journey.
