“Happiness is Easy— A Tribute to Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis” San Francisco

"The voice of Mark Hollis was an obscure and rare treasure. I was gutted to hear he had suddenly passed earlier this year. The lavish exquisite pain of Talk Talk (especially Laughing Stock and Spirit of Eden and Mark’s obscure solo recordings) were cherished albums. They saved me from the mundane— and opened a completely new world of emotion, space, and colors. They still give me chills whenever I listen to them.” — Jill Tracy
