    The album is still the most sold of the band to date and the most original since , at that time, Morrison would dedicate himself completely to the music (later he will spend a lot of his time writing poems ).

    Jim would have written this song thinking about his former girlfriend sitting on a beach near Santa Barbara in California.

    According to many the Crystal ship was just a oil rig platform that, during the night,  was shining as a ship made of crystals.

    Jim, looking at it toke the inspiration for the title and the final verse of the song.

    We will meet again Jim!
