“The music industry has made a couple of sea changes since Jeff departed the planet,” Buckley’s mother, Mary Guibert, said in a press release. “I don’t know if he foresaw even a glimpse of the current state of affairs. Since all we have of his true remains is what’s in ‘the vault’, I’m thrilled that we can finally fling open the doors of that vault and make as much as possible available to Jeff’s fans: the old ones and the new ones, and the ones who have not yet been born.”
