Sailor's Delight

Sailor's Delight
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.
