"A Glass of Champagne-Live 2CD Set" (SJPCD222)

Definitely a must for fans of the band and lovers of 70's soft rock, which is on the rise due to all the coverage of the Guilty Pleasures club and CD's. ***1/2

All the hits of the finest rock cabaret act are here...And you'll like it enough to pour a tear in your own glass when a delicate 'Jacaranda' flows by and smile before the tears get dry.

 Treasure Trove (SJPCD249)

It shows Sailor to have had a quirky and interesting style with some good ideas.

Music Week, September 2007
 



As with all Angel Air releases, it's a stunning set'The band's earliest demos and tracks intended for their projected, but never released, seventh album TV Land are the real jewels within for fans, but there's plenty more rarer old and new music to explore. A must for every Sailor fan.

...sultry rock steady is married to Weimar-esque heartfelt recklessness...You can all join in

This handsomely-packaged double-disc set tells the story of Sailor...there's plenty of value here, not to mention historical interest...Sailor sail on...this will satisfy their devotees.

Record Collector, December 2007
 


...these 38 tracks on two discs touch on all manner of musical styles...

...their innate sense of fun and their ability to pen consistently memorable material...suggests an act worthy of reappraisal.

Danny Moore, RocknReel (November 2007)
 


...a great introduction for anyone who missed Sailor first time round.

SAILOR Traffic Jam (SJPCD267)

A CD of Sailor's very best tracks, along with a live DVD, what more could you ask for.

This is a fantastic package with the very best of a vastly talented and under-rated band. There is only one problem with the CD but it turns into a plus. Some of the hits are not the original recordings, but they are live recordings which make them all the more desirable, especially if you already have the originals.

That's quite an enigma, why in our times of ad predators hawking on any catchy piece of music there is don't lent their ears to the SAILOR songs which can gloriously accompany every image on Earth.

he English band still ride the waves - the testimony to that lies in the DVD included in this "Sound And Vision" package - so it's never too late to seize the opportunity, and this compilation offers the map to the ensemble's journey. With their "alternative" history served on "Treasure Trove", it's not the straight anthology, still, as the chronologic principle can't be applied to the band so fully formed from the early '70s start, and all of the songs here sound as if they belonged to a single era.

From the duo called KAJANUS / PICKETT's ringing "Changes" through the sparking live take on "Panama" to the quintessential SAILOR frivolity of "A Glass Of Champagne" and the Tchaikovsly-quoting anthemic "Perfect Time", the music is as modern as it gets. Blame it on the rich vocal harmonies, the enigmatic instrument that is Nickelodeon, or the catchy melodies but, as Georg Kajanus, Phil Pickett and their compadres would put it, it's your own soft spot the band just hit. And how one could go wrong with the "Girls Girls Girls" party call? Hey, PR gurus, all hands on deck! *****

The collection of 1973 demos is particularly interesting, serving up embryonic versions of future singles...

The band had a string of hits during the mid '70s, and was best known for its campy, theatrical persona and impeccable harmonies.

Traffic Jam is a comp that culls live performances with studio versions and demos. It also includes a DVD featuring a reformed version of the band.
