Hallelujah! Anyone listening to NPR’s “Morning Edition” today (Nov. 12) who is also a Jeff Buckley fan got a bit of a thrill as critic Ann Powers disclosed the Spring arrival, on March 16, of You and I, a 10-track collection of very early, pre-Sony, recordings comprising 8 covers and two Buckley originals. You can go HERE to read Powers’ comments about Buckley and listen to the broadcast (which featured snippets of his Sly Stone and one of two Smiths covers). The complete version of Stone’s “Everyday People” is there as well. Here’s the complete tracklisting.
