Jeff Buckley: Sketches For My Drunk Sweetheart
Grade: M (sealed)
Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk is the only posthumous album of polished studio tracks and demos recorded by American singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley. Buckley was dissatisfied by the material recorded during the first block session, produced by the band Television's frontman, Tom Verlaine, in the summer of 1996 and early in 1997. He then continued working on demo recordings to refine his sound. The album was to be titled My Sweetheart, the Drunk, but was never finished, as the rest of the band were traveling to meet Buckley at the time of his death. The album was released posthumously on May 26, 1998. Despite its unfinished state, the album garnered many positive reviews. Musically, biographers and critics pointed that he "was reaching fruitfully in multiple directions.
