Original album deemed one of the ‘90s key artifacts by pretty much every friggin’ critic on the planet…

If you don’t know Jeff Buckley’s landmark ’94 album Grace you’re probably not a music fan (and probably aren’t reading this news item, for that matter). It would mark a high point in a tragically short career, as he drowned in Memphis in May of ’97. Several posthumous collections have been released, of course, and Grace itself has seen several iterations in reissue format. Now, though, Boston music retailer Newbury Comics has a very special reissue for the record’s 20th anniversary.
Grace is due August 26 as a limited edition, foil-stamp numbered edition (only 2000 copies will be manufactured), and it is also on 180-gram, lilac swirl vinyl. Seriously – does a record get any prettier than this? See the image above….
