If you're just a casual Jeff Buckley fan I can't really recommend hunting down all his singles and EPs as it will get expensive and they're not easy to find. There aren't any b-sides on them anyway, except for "Lost Highway" on the "So Real" single. Here we have the "Eternal Life" single. Track 1 is the album version, nothing new. Track 2 is the "Road Version" of "Eternal Life", and it's played faster and harder. The "Mystery White Boy" live album's "Eternal Life" is played exactly the same way....so nothing really new. Track 3 and 4 are "Last Goodbye" and "Lover....", acoustic and live. This IS a good CD. I will not deny that. But I don't understand why Columbia put out all these EPs and singles and didn't include actual b-sides. There are a lot of songs, perfectly good songs Jeff recorded in the studio that could have been used but for unknown reasons his record company thought no one would notice that they were rehashing the same songs OVER and OVER.

I just think this CD is cool. From the soft/sweet guitar on "Last Goodbye" and "Lover you shoud've come over", to the rip-roaring guitar of the "Eternal life" road version. I think Jeff Buckley is a great singer, who has great improvisational skills.

This Single/EP contains some very good yet very different versions of familiar Buckley tunes. Definately worth the purchase for the serious Jeff Buckley fan.

HASH(0x9e015438) out of 5 stars A great bargain for the devoted fan May 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having been lucky enough to see Jeff Buckley perform four times before his death and also to meet him, I can attest to the high quality of these unique recordings, from the charged electric wonder of "Eternal Life" to the elegant acoustics of "Last Goodbye." Jeff Buckley brought the same passion captured on his studio recordings to each live performance anew, interpreting and reinterpreting his songs. The true gem of this CD, however, is "Lover, You Should've Come Over." The passion present in the live version far exceeds that found on "Grace," and I think this version captures soul in its purest form, at times oozing like honey, at other times emerging painfully. It is one of the only recordings that has ever brought me to tears from its sheer beauty. On top of all this, I am a DJ on local independent public station WYEP, and each time I play this version I get a caller desperate to know where it can be found. Luckily, next time I'll have an answer, as Amazon.com is the only place I've seen this Australian import since I purchased it in 1995.

HASH(0x9e0158a0) out of 5 stars Life Springs Eternal Dec 7 1999
By Scott Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is, perhaps, one of the best EP's available to showcase Jeff Buckley's musical prowess and diversity. The "Road Version" of the title track is harder than most "hard rock" or "alternative" bands that fall within these labels. I think, given the empathic nature of Jeff's music, it lends the song an edge that most other "harder" bands lack; there's also a maturity in his sound and songwriting that seems infinitely wise beyond his youthful countenance. My two favourite tracks, however, are the live/acoustic renditions of "Last Goodbye" and "Lover You Should've Come Over". Both songs are beautifully crafted and powerfully moving. The recording quality is immaculate (probably live-in-studio) and the performances are electric! Essential listening for devoted and casual fans alike.

HASH(0x9e015bdc) out of 5 stars Riproaring electric guitars in the "road version" of EL!!! Sept. 19 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are four songs on this Jeff Buckley CD single. The first is "Eternal Life" as taken from Jeff's album "Grace." The second is the "road version" of this song. Next are "live and acoustic in Japan" renditions of "Last Goodbye" and "Lover, You Should've Come Over." The highlight of this CD is the "road version" of "Eternal Life", as there are no other recordings available where Jeff shows so much hard-rock energy. Michael Tighe and Jeff play their electric guitars with precision and mastery, skillfully supporting, reinforcing and MATCHING each other. Jeff sings an octave higher than on the album version of "Eternal Life," and his snarling and wailing give the song an impetus which you never knew it lacked before. All of the instrumentalists contribute to the enormous rhythmic drive that is present in the "road version" of "Eternal Life:" Mick Grondahl plays a consistent bass, and Matt Johnson (drums) is ever present with the 3-3-2 pattern that forms the basis of the rhythmic idea. But let's face it; this version of "Eternal Life" is Buckley and Tighe's baby. The "live and acoustic in Japan" songs are studio recordings with acoustic guitars, electric bass, and drums, and do not differ significantly from the album versions. This is why I have given this CD only 3 stars; there is not much NEW material; only the "road version" of "Eternal Life." (I give 5 stars for that song on its own!) However, Jeff's vocals are always worth listening to; and each time I hear a different recording of any one of Jeff's songs I am absorbed by the nuances of his performance. "Last Goodbye" and "Lover, You Should've Come Over" are no exception in this regard, and may be thought of as the cream-cheese icing on the carrot cake (mmmm carrot cake) that is "Eternal Life," CD single.
