JEFF BUCKLEY September, 1990 Los Angeles, Babylon Dungeon Sessions, California, USA
NOTES Jeff Buckley's first studio session.
'Unforgiven' is the initial working title for 'Last Goodbye'. The instruments, lyrics and vocal melody of the song are a bit different.
'Strawberry Street' previously unreleased, originally written in 1988 - happens to be one of the first songs penned by Jeff & the earliest version dates back to his very first recording session 'The Babylon Dungeon Sessions' from Sept '90. Only two known versions exist of this song. The version without vocals from the Babylon Dungeon sessions and the one which was later revisited and recorded in a rehearsal at The Knitting Factory, NY, in May of 1993, with an early try-out combo of bassist Tom Goodkind (of The Washington Squares) and drummer John McNally. That version is included only on the UK release Grace: 10th Anniversary Legacy Edition. It was also released as the flip side to Forget Her on the blue vinyl 7" freebie that came with the last issue of the Grace LP.
