New Buckley Material Coming, Mom Says

September 19, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Both as an attempt to keep fans happy as well as keeping her son's music and spirit alive, Mary Guibert, the mother of the late Jeff Buckley, posted a letter on Buckley's web site stating a record containing his last recordings will be released sometime in the near future. A few weeks ago, JAMTV reported that Buckley's family and Columbia Records together decided to put the project on hold until they felt they had taken enough time to mourn properly.

In the letter at www.jeffbuckley.com, Guibert talks of how once she started listening to the tapes she realized there was plenty of material to choose from for a posthumous record. She said how excited the music makes her feel and that she will release as much of it as she can -- including live material from Buckley's Live and Sine sessions.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
