Live at Sin-é (Legacy Edition) is a 2003 live double album by Jeff Buckley. It is the extended version of Buckley's 1993 EP Live at Sin-é, released by Columbia Records. Recorded over two afternoons at Sin-é, the Legacy Edition is a two-disc set (one for each concert), plus a ten-minute bonus DVD containing brief excerpts of Jeff playing solo electric at Sin-é. Early versions of songs that would later appear on the album Grace, including "Lover, You Should've Come Over", "Grace", Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", and "Unforgiven"—which was later renamed as "Last Goodbye"—can be heard on the two discs, as well as numerous covers from artists ranging from Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.

Equipment[edit]

Jeff used a Blonde Fender Telecaster. All of the songs were played with a clean sound with reverb added to both the guitar and vocals.
