In early 1993 – months before he would begin work on his only completed studio album, Grace Jeff Buckley made a series of solo recordings, which covered artists such as Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Sly Stone and The Smiths, with excursions into old jazz and blues tunes. Nineteen years after the singer’s untimely death, Nick Bollinger talks to Steve Berkowitz, who signed Buckley to Columbia records and produced these recently unearthed recordings.
