More Info:

'Starsailor' is the sixth studio album by Tim Buckley (yes, the father of Jeff Buckley) and arguably his artistic pinnacle. This is the culmination of Tim's journey into the stylings of jazz. A breathtaking album of incredible originality and creativity. Buck Gardner, from Frank Zappa's classic Mothers Of Invention plays amazing trumpet parts on this album. All the tracks are unique in their own way and deserve praise. Songs like the title track and "Jungle Fire" among others show his vocal versatility like never before with his legendary 5 plus octave range. "Song To The Siren" has been covered by a variety of artists, most notably by This Mortal Coil and John Frusciante. Although hardly appreciated in 1970, this is one of the truly great modern recordings.
