Jeff Buckley - The Grace Of J - Arlene's Grocery


9 February 1997 - Arlene's Grocery - New York City, New York

It is with some trepidation that I speak of Jeff Buckley bootlegs. For one, we know for sure that he hated them. And this isn’t a Buckley voiced by Columbia records. It is somewhat ironically that we have his own expression of his vexation at them on a bootleg itself. The recording of his performance with band members at Arlene’s Grocery (NYC) in February 1997, a very short period of time before his death, he mentions: ‘I’ve stopped getting stoned at the gigs … that’s why I’m so touchy about the bootlegs, because I’ve said some shit.’
At midnight on February 9, 1997, Jeff Buckley debuted his new drummer, Parker Kindred, in a show at Arlene Grocery on New York's Lower East Side.
