See for Miles' 1990 compilation The Best of Idle Race contains a generous 25 tracks – just over half of what the Idle Race recorded. This means that it does have the great majority of the best material the band recorded, and it would satisfy everyone outside of the rabid collectors who need anything. The catch is, if you're into the Idle Race, you need everything, so this collection is essentially a stopgap until you can track down (or afford) EMI's 1996 complete collection, Back to the Story. Even then, this may be a little more listenable, since it boils the group's interesting but erratic career to its very best – which is obscure British psych at its best (in other words, it's for the collectors who will seek it out, not anyone else).
In Transition celebrates, with seven previously unreleased studio performances, the 25th anniversary of Grace, the sole studio album released by Jeff Buckley during his lifetime. Recorded during his first studio session for Columbia Records in 1993, In Transition, true to its name, paints a vivid picture of Buckley’s evolution from stripped-back live troubadour to worldly, captivating performer whose style inspired a generation. In Transition includes stunning early versions of original songs released on Grace (“Mojo Pin,” “Unforgiven aka Last Goodbye”) as well as unique interpretations of other people’s songs (Nina Simone’s “If You Knew,” an early rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”), further underscoring the power of Buckley’s forever-enduring musical style.
