Buckley’s “Sin-e” Expanded

Legendary EP to be reissued as two-CD set

Jeff Buckley’s Live at Sin-e EP, the first release of the
late singer-songwriter’s short career, will be reissued as a two-CD
set on September 2nd by Sony/Legacy. The four-song set features
just Buckley and his electric guitar and was recorded at the tiny
New York City club where buzz first began to build about his

The original EP, released in 1993, included two Buckley
originals, “Mojo Pin” (a co-write with Gary Lucas) and “Eternal
Life,” along with a cover of Van Morrison’s “The Way Young Lovers
Do” and the Edith Piaf standard “Je N’en Connais Pas la Fin.” The
reissue set features the twenty-seven-minute Sin-e as well
as more than two hours of additional music, including covers of
songs by Bob Dylan (“Just Like a Woman,” “If You See Her, Say
Hello” and “I Shall Be Released”), Led Zeppelin (“Night Flight),
Nina Simone (“If You Knew”), Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (“Yeh Jo Halka
Halk Saroor Hai”) and Morrison (“Sweet Thing,” in addition to
“Young Lovers”) and songs that would eventually appear on Buckley’s
full-length debut, Grace, released in 1994.

Also included in the set will be a bonus DVD featuring
performances of five songs performed at Sin-e and an interview with
Buckley talking about the shows at the venue.

Buckley was recording his second album in Memphis in 1997 when
he drowned in the Mississippi River. Sessions for that album were
released a year later on the two-CD Sketches for My Sweetheart
the Drunk
. Live Buckley recordings, including 2000’s

Mystery White Boy and 2001’s Live at L’Olympia,
have since followed.
