CD Reviews

The best of an ordinary selction of Sailor compilations
Peter A. Taylor | Taiwan | 01/06/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"As a fan of Sailor, pretty well for the duration of the bands tenure (30 years), I've been consistently frustrated with the disapointing catalogue available of the bands music, including complilation albums/cd's. This effort, which seems to be regurgitated every now and then, is no exception, but is probably the best of the 'ordinary' lot. When I say ordinary, I'm not referring to the bands refreshing brand of theatre/art rock ( a sort of Roxy Music, Sparks, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel and Beach Boys hybrid), but rather the disapointing efforts record companies have gone to at putting together a truly representative selection of the bands varied and lengthy career. There's nothing on this album from the bands last album together as a foursome at the end of the first span of their careers together ("Hideaway"), nor much from the resurgent period of the early 1990's to mid 1990's. For my mind, anyone wanting to appreciate the unique phenomen of Sailor's music would be better off trying to track down the excellent first self titled album, released way back in 1974."
