Jeff Buckley: Live From The Bataclan *Remastered*

Live From The Bataclan is a wonderful live performance from Jeff Buckley. Recorded on the 11th February 1995 in Paris.

The exact source is unknown but it maybe an FM broardcast or an excellent audience recording. Although the sound quality isn't as good as the officially released tracks the sound is pretty damn good. I have done some audio clean-up here to reduce hiss and improve the over all sound. There is however a few audio glitches thoughout the performance (but not many, only two or three) that I couldn't remove without editing out parts of the performance. The last three tracks of the concert are missing as they are available on the "Live From The Bataclan" EP with is included in the Grace EP's Boxset.

01 - Last Goodbye
02 - So Real
03 - Grace
04 - Dream Brother
05 - Mojo Pin
06 - What Will You Say
07 - Lilac Wine
08 - Lover, You Should've Come Over
09 - Eternal Life
10 - Vancouver
11 - Kanga-Roo

Live from the Bataclan EP contains three tracks not found here.
