    A terrific cover of Van Morrison's song. This comes out as the longest version to date with a nice little slide solo by Jeff towards the end of the song.

    Apparently this show was filmed by multiple video cameras.

      I agree. I read this on the Steve Hoffman Music Forums website:
      The person under the username, Trainwreck, wrote the following:
      *”...the 'first' live show with the band (at the tail end of overdubs for Grace) was at CB 313 Gallery....they tore that place down, had something to prove in their blood....the cameras were rolling, big ones.....That's the release I'm waiting for.* I'd been listening to the tunes in micorscopic detail for almost two months and watched Jeff nightly, in a private like setting....'do his thing'...and it was everything you'd expect it to be....mouth on the floor mesmerizing etc....but this was...mouth on the floor, cold brick upside the brain....sonic reality altered.....goosebumps.
      The audience was a weird mix...a lot of 'industry'....Andy of course, Steve Berkowitz etc... and pretty much all of the recording studio moles, myself included.
      And then, the 'fans', the ones that expected Jeff to be doing his solo/caberet thing (it was CB Gallery after all). This was their introduction into 'where' Jeff was going artistically and for some of them, it didn't go well, they cornered him after the show and berated him for going 'band' Dylan going was surreal.
      He tried to introduce me into the conversation after-show and they pummeled me out of the way like I was part of the just looked at me with a....stunned/wtf portrait captured like a cartoon....I was like....hugs & kisses, see ya tommorrow brother (some of his close friends were no better, dropping by the studio for a listen, responses were akin to....."ummm, this is different!!??"...poor guy, tough storm to stand against).”
      I noticed this and sent him a private email. We had a few exchanges. Here are his responses to me:
      *”Hey, There were cameras there, at times he was ham'n to them (ala Johnny Cash flip'n a bird etc..). So yea, I assume so, whether the footage still exist idk, if it did I'm sure they'd release it, unless it's in sub-par quality. I'll ask some who might know.*
      I was the assistant engineer at SoundTrack NYC on Grace. All the vox, and overdubs, fixes, and capturing the caberet performances...etc. Jeff lived down the street from the studio and started hang there a lot, a sorta artistic resort/enclave.
      Also, as life would have it, I was a student at G.I.T. in Hollywood with him (Jimmy Herring and Paul Gilbert) as well, same circle of friends. I still have the GIT graduation pamplet were Jeff is listed playing Weather Reports - Pearl on the Half Shell (on the attached image; see #13, #8 and #9 Jimmy Herring and Paul Gilbert performances...good times). So our life patterns were in sync I guess, we got to be good friends in NYC.
      Cabaret....basically his solo set. At the end of each night, Jeff would play thru tunes. Like Hali, or Corpus, trying to get 'the take', but he'd also break free and doing all sorts of random ****, from mocking Eddie Vedder to playing KISS tunes and Dylan, all over the was a treat. Just Andy and myself in attendance, nobody but the band and George were allowed in the session, he brought in Rebecca Moore to hear what was shaping and her reaction was bit....well....she said....."this is not what I expected Jeff", it wasn't a reaction he was anamoured with, but, nobody seen it coming, that's why the CB Gallery was so epic to me.
      After the show, he was literally cornered near the bathroom by fans telling him **** like..."Jeff, this all cute and everything, this band thing, but the REAL you is just you and the guitar Jeff, don't do this!!" etc...I was standing there with him!, he looked at me in disbelief, I was like, I'll see you tommorrow man....shaking my head and gave me a hug. He was trying to introduce me, but they kept pushing me out of the way to give him grief about his new
      Anyway...Hali and Corpus are composites.”
      I have tried to follow up with him several more times, but he hasn’t responded since March, 2018, despite logging in regularly. I don’t know why he has disappeared.
      Based on the Grace liner notes credits, the person in question is named, Bryant Jackson or Reggie Griffith.

    Words are really beautiful, but they're limited. Words are very male, very structured. But the voice is the netherworld, the darkness, where there's nothing to hang onto. The voice comes from a part of you that just knows and expresses and is. .....Jeff Buckley

    The worst of the worst of Robert Plant at his ABSOLUTE worst - meets an extremely autistic Van Morrison ... only (get this!) Van's band doesn't show up. Then all of the younger siblings of Van's band members - on a LARK - and drunk - try (try REAL hard) to play their older brother's instruments - for like the second or third time in their LIVES.
    That's the most complimentary way of putting it I can think of.
    Or let's just say "I could do better," on a BAD day, and (thankfully) I don't play an instrument, beings it might sound almost this horrid. Use your imagination: Robert Plant, this really IS the way you sound to most of us, post-Zeppelin, which ain't all that hot .... wooo yeaeah woooo yeaaahhh wooo yeaeah woooo yeaaahhh wooo yeaeah woooo yeaaahhh --- MAN I'M GETTIN' INTO IT!!!
