From the Archives: Jeff Buckley

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.

Check it out, and fall in love with Jeff Buckley all over again.
