Hear Jeff Buckley’s Gorgeous Cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Just Like a Woman’
Throughout his short-lived career, Jeff Buckley was hardly a stranger to the art of covering other musicians’ work, and accordingly, You and I, the forthcoming collection of the singer’s previously unheard material, is mostly comprised of covers. We’ve already heard his take on Sly & the Family Stone’s “Everyday People,” and now, we can enjoy his rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like a Woman” (via NPR):
In fact, Buckley frequently turned to Dylan. The 2003 live album Live at Sin-é (which expanded on his 1993 EP of the same name) captures Buckley delivering three Dylan covers: “If You See Her, Say Hello,” “I Shall Be Released” and “Just Like a Woman.” Buckley captures the same spirit of that live performance in the 1993 recording that now appears on You And I, building on the song for a nearly six and a half-minute run.
You and I is due out March 16 via Columbia/Legacy. Its 10 tracks also include covers of the Smiths and Led Zeppelin, plus two originals: “Grace” and “Dream of You and I.” You and I chronicles Buckley’s early career prior to releasing his one and only album Grace in 1994. He died three short years later from an accidental drowning.
