In the early 90's, Jeff Buckley stopped by KCRW's studios late one night - well before he was famous - settling down in front of a microphone in Master Control right across from Liza Richardson. He sang a handful of songs, including a Bad Brains cover, an original track and a cover of Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit." There was no engineer on site. It was recorded on DAT.

At first we were only able to rescue one part of the session (see here) but, as luck would have it, engineer JC Swiatek discovered another copy of the recording in her own personal collection and now we can make the entire session available.

Thought the title read Keith Buckley at first. I panicked inside.

I got the Jeff Buckley update today facebook - I know they are run by family, the label, etc, but it's still weird getting updates from dead people on my feed.

i'm sure it's only b/c of the lack of knowledge of who Jeff Buckley is/was.
Thats actually exactly what I thought.

I disagree completely. I would say it constantly gets matched, but definitely never duplicated. Tons of talent out there if you look for it. But, these days, it's almost as if a good artist HAS TO die first just to get the proper recognition of their work. That being said, RIP Jeff Buckley. He has done more for music even in death, than most artists do in their entire lives.

I completely disagree with you. His vocal talent didn't just lie in his soaring 4 or 5 or whatever octave range people wanna talk about. That's cool that he could sing real high, but his his greatest talent was his ability to nail the emotion in the vocals as well as his control. In that sense literally nobody has matched him since in terms of his voice.

Jeff Buckley's true talent was apparent in his performance of the vocals as well as his writing, not his range.
