Jeff Buckley documentary

Fans might like to listen to a two part documentary, Mystery White Boy, on BBC 6 this Wednesday and Thursday (23/24 March 2005)

Buckley surfaced in the early 1990s, having honed his unique vocal style, mesmerising chord structures and writing skills in New York’s avant garde club scene. His debut album Grace became cult listening. Amongst Buckley’s own compositions the album also featured work by Benjamin Britten (Corpus Christi Carol) Leonard Cohen (Hallelujah) and James Shelton’s Lilac Wine.

But prior to the recording of the album My Sweetheart the Drunk, which was to be produced by Andy Wallace, Buckley was found dead in the Mississippi River, at the foot of Beale Street – the heart of the music district of Memphis.

You’ll be able to listen live online, via digital radio or listen again.

    How interesting, Daisy. I went out to read more on Jeff and found out about his father, Tim, dying prematurely as well.

    How sad. Such talent lost so early.
