The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the Unlikely Ascent of "Hallelujah" [Hardcover]
By Alan Light
Publish Date: December 4, 2012
How did one song become an international anthem for human triumph and tragedy, a song each successive generation seems to feel they have discovered and claimed as uniquely their own?
Through in-depth interviews with its interpreters and the key figures who were actually there for its original recordings, acclaimed music journalist Alan Light follows the improbable journey of “Hallelujah” straight to the heart of popular culture. The Holy or the Broken gives insight into how great songs come to be, how they come to be listened to, and how they can be forever reinterpreted.

Also featured are The Doors, Sex Pistols, Velvet Underground, Jimi Hendrix, Patti Smith, MC5, Pink Floyd's "Piper at the Gates of Dawn", "The Who Sings My Generation", Led Zeppelin I and more. See the full list online at San Francisco Chronicle
In the early 90's, Jeff Buckley stopped by KCRW's studios late one night - well before he was famous - settling down in front of a microphone in Master Control right across from Liza Richardson. He sang a handful of songs, including a Bad Brains cover, an original track and a cover of Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit." There was no engineer on site. It was recorded on DAT.
At first we were only able to rescue one part of the session (see here) but, as luck would have it, engineer JC Swiatek discovered another copy of the recording in her own personal collection and now we can make the entire session available.
Check it out, and fall in love with Jeff Buckley all over again.
