Jeff covers Nusrat



This is an extraordinary performance by an extraordinary artitst. Ben first alerted me to the fact that Jeff Buckley had covered one or two of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's ecstatic qawwali songs. What a talent the poor fellow had, dead at 30.

The song starts at 3.30ish.

And again: here Tori Amos does something wonderful with Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill.

Loved the NFAK cover.

What is that dropsical building in the header?

Can't now recall. I found it on the wonderful blog Form Is Void.
