Once I Was
1 of 1

The latest installment of Light in the Attic’s exclusive vinyl and digital singles series features musician, poet, and author Leslie Winer collaborating with Manchester-born composer Maxwell Sterling on a truly gorgeous cover of Tim Buckley’s 1967 forlorn love song “Once I Was.” Buckley’s original classic is found on the flip-side and initially taken from the release Lady, Give Me Your Key: The Unissued 1967 Solo Acoustic Sessions (FDR 631).

Previous singles in Light in the Attic’s Covers Series includes Bill Callahan & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy covering Johnnie Frierson’s beautiful and inspiring tune “Miracles,” BADBADNOTGOOD with Jonah Yano covering “Key To Love (Is Understanding)" by Milwaukee’s funk/soul pioneers Majestics, Charles Bradley & the Menahan Street Band covering Sixto Rodriguez, Mac DeMarco covering Haruomi Hosono’s “Honey Moon," and Iggy Pop with the Zig Zags transforming Betty Davis’ dirty funk into a heavy Sabbath grind, amongst many others.
