Truely one of the most beautiful songs, on this man’s desert isle discs collection for sure, and this is one of the most wonderful renditions by Jeff Buckley. It’s beyond tragic that we didn’t see his career blossom into full. The Saturday tune for pondering and all things deeply thought, from the Flimwell Papers collection.
“According to singer Thom Yorke, the song [Fake Plastic Trees] was recorded as the band had just been to see Jeff Buckley play a set at The Garage in London. When they got back into the studio, Yorke recorded the vocals in two takes, and broke down in tears after the second.”
i don’t care if citation is needed, i’d like to think that this is real.
