  • Engineers include: Kerry McNabb, Larry Hirsch, Roy Cicalo.
  • Principally recorded at Paramount Recording Studios, Los Angeles, California.
  • Digitally remastered by Bill Inglot & Ken Perry.
  • SEFRONIA is an occasionally mesmerizing and very strange album, even by Tim Buckley's latter-day standards. Anybody who could open a lyric with the line "I couldn't buy you with one hundred cattle" (as Buckley does in part two of the album's title song) is harboring no illusions about his ability to sell records. The aforementioned two-part title song is a highly original, abstract mix of folk, jazz, and art song, featuring, like the rest of the album, typically spellbinding vocals.
  • More weirdness is on display in "I'd Recognize Your Face," a duet (with the lost-to-history Marcia Waldorf on vocals) sung from the point of view of a divorced couple in which the guy isn't paying alimony and has never seen his own son. It's autobiographical, although most listeners at the time had no idea. Buckley closes the album with a version of the most ambiguous and spooky song in rock history--the Jaynettes' "Sally Go Round the Roses."
