Featuring The Damned, Lil Tay, King Crimson and much more. Cheq out this footage of Tim Buckley performing "Song To The Siren" on The Monkees TV show in 1968. Monkees sticksman Mickey Dolenz, who directed this particular episode, had five minutes to fill and invited his friend Tim Buckley to play a song. He puts in an incredible performance, accompanied by his Guild 12 string acoustic in a pair of fawn jumbo chords. Buckley would go on to record a very different sounding version for his 1970 "Starsailor" album. The song would eventually reach a much wider audience when Cocteau Twins' singer Elizabeth Fraser provided the vocal on This Mortal Coil's version.
