Mojo Pin - Jeff Buckley
My mind has been blown. I just found out that Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studio, here in Auckland, New Zealand has the Neve 8088 console from Bearsville that recorded Jeff Buckley’s Grace and the Who’s Quadrophenia.
Wonder if I could ask for a moment alone with it?

Jeff Buckley by Merri Cyr, December 1995
"Jeff doing interviews…about four or five hours worth. We are at a hotel conference room in Orlando Florida where they bring in a portable bed for Jeff to lie on while he does his interviews. He’s been up all night."
Elizabeth Fraser wrote the song’s lyrics and was recording the song when she got the news of the death by drowning on 29 May 1997 of her once-close friend, Jeff Buckley. "That was so weird … I’d got letters out and I was thinking about him. That song’s kind of about him – that’s how it feels to me anyway."

hallelujah // jeff buckley
and i’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
it’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah
