Jeff Buckley

Grace Around the World (Columbia/Legacy)

"I don't even know what that is, this flesh thing – or this earth thing, I don't know," shrugs Jeff Buckley on Vancouver TV in 1994, less than three years before he drowned at age 30. Collegiate existentialism can be shrugged off as well when major label spoils then deliver Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on Japanese MTV. Lupine on the BBC, "So Real" in Frankfurt, New Orleans verité, and raw "Eternal Life" campaign for sole Buckley LP Grace, while disc two acts as an EPK and a CD compiles live audio. Sixth Street's Boiling Pot mattes one photo. Mr. "Mojo Pin" rising.
