TIM BUCKLEY - STARSAILOR

Tim Buckley - StarsailorStarsailor is a culmination of Tim Buckley's experiments exploring jazz and avant-garde, and with former Mother of Invention Bunk Gardner on sax and alto flute the story is complete.

Surrealistic lyrics, heavy chords and unexpected twists make Starsailor a brilliant album that admittedly, isn't for everybody, but endures as one of the most legendary albums ever made by a singer/songwriter.
