Hallelujah, It's Jeff Buckley

Reading the new Allen Light book about my man Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and just getting to long section on Jeff Buckley, who did the key early cover.   Did not know Jeff was once Glen Hansard's roadie and Glenn got him breakthrough gig at East Village Irish bar Sin'e that we used to visit when I was at Editor & Publisher.  So here's Jeff doing NOT that song but another fine one off his debut lp,  Nina Simone's "Lilac Wine."

What I would give to have been present at Sin-E, at 122 St. Mark's, in the early 1990's, when Jeff was doing his Monday night performances! I frequent the site now -- another Irish bar is located there. To me it feels like sacred ground.
