Back in July I posted a couple of tracks from the debut album by Doug Fieger's first band Sky. Sky's second album, Sailor's Delight, came out in 1971 and was produced by Jimmy Miller with Andy Johns, who as you all should know worked with the Rolling Stones. In fact the same horn section that the Stones used appear on this album as well as pianist Ian Stewart. The album is a solid representation of Fieger's song compositions and pre-Knack efforts; "Let It Lie Low" is a nice bit of pop/rock that foretells what was to come. Keep in mind that Doug was only 18 when this album came out, now that's some solid songwriting for a wee lad. A lot of fans are clamoring for these two rare Sky albums to be remastered and reissued because they're so friggin' hard to find and they offer an insight to the early genius of Doug Fieger. Because of the rarity of this album I once again make an offer to those who wish to hear it in it's entirety, just email the homercat and he'll provide you with a link for this goodie. You can find the email over there in the sidebar under words of wisdom.
MP3s that will appear on this blog will be available for only a week or so(usually far less) and are here for sampling purposes only. It is not my intention to violate copyrights. My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
