Wear a lifevest

Last week’s American Idol-inspired fervor over Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” and, more precisely, Jeff Buckley’s transcendent version, it got me thinking about putting up a live version for my readers to enjoy – yes, all 6 or 8 of you. Well, that fell through the second I hit upon this stunning take on “Lover, You Should Have Come Over,” which just happens to be probably my favorite Buckley piece, and it’s a gorgeous soundboard recording – you need this if you dig Jeff Buckley. It’s a big file – 13.5mb, but it’s also encoded at 224kbps VBR, so it’s quality.

Jeff Buckley – “Lover, You Should Have Come Over” Live at the Knitting Factory, Feb. 4, 1997, New York.

The lesson to be learned from Jeff’s short life? When you go swimming in a big river, heed the subject line.
