Jeff Buckley - The Music Faucet 1992

By the time Jeff Buckley performed on WFMU's The Music Faucet in October 1992 some of the songs that would appear on his debut album Grace less than two years later were already well developed albeit with a few notable differences to what would become the final studio versions.

His love for performing covers from an incredibly diverse range of artists and styles has been well documented and throughout 1992 those fortunate enough to catch him at cafe's and clubs in Lower Manhattan may have heard him perform an eclectic selection of covers from a range of artists including Led Zeppelin, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Bob Dylan, Édith Piaf, Elton John, The Smiths, Bad Brains, Leonard Cohen, Robert Johnson and Siouxsie Sioux.

In 1991 Jeff Buckley had began co-writing with Gary Lucas resulting in the songs "Grace" and "Mojo Pin",and by late 1991 he began performing with Lucas' band Gods and Monsters around New York City. After being offered a development deal as a member of Gods and Monsters at Imago Records, Jeff moved back to New York to the Lower East Side at the end of 1991. The day after Gods and Monsters officially debuted in March 1992, Jeff Buckley decided to leave the band.

By the summer of 1992, limos from executives eager to sign the singer lined the street outside Sin-é. Jeff signed with Columbia Records, then home of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, for a three-album, essentially million-dollar deal in October 1992. This recording captures Jeff on the cusp of change, however the intimate feel of this radio studio gig and his connection with his audience, thankfully continued as Jeff's popularity increased. Two cover versions of songs from Elton John's Captain Fantastic album are included as is a song entitled 'Unforgiven' that would later become 'Last Goodbye'.

Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah is my favorite song. The passion that he puts into the song is amazing, and his take on the song is much better than Cohen's original version in my opinion.

it is, but nevertheless I prefer John Cale's Version. It comes from his wonderful live album "Fragments Of A Rainy Season"

I think Jeff's cover of Hallelujah wrongfully overshadows his own songs, which are far more impressive and compelling.

That said, even Cohen himself agreed that Jeff's version of the song is the definitive performance of the song.

I received a comment from 'Bucklberry' saying that he should get a nod for this material as they are his mp3's. Well I am always grateful for those who originally source material although the mp3's in reality belong to the estate of Jeff Buckley and it is to him we should forever be grateful.

None of us 'own' these bootlegs, and they pass through many channels and blogs and torrents, we here at Beehive Candy just like to share what we like whatever the original source, so that all fans can enjoy the experience.

Others repost Beehives downloads on their blogs which is absolutely fine, so feel free to share wherever and whenever as none of this belongs solely to us.

Thanks for this. Just heard a Jeff track (we all fall in love sometimes) that I'd never heard. I had to track it down and I found this gem of a recording.

His cover of any song turns out to be the definitive version in my mind.
