3.0 out of 5 stars FIFTH ALBUM FROM SAILOR - MIXED BLESSINGS 21 Mar 2010
By HAYLING BOOK & MUSIC VENUE (HBMV) TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is the final album of Sailor's Seventies career and was made at a time when they had become deeply unfashionable. Consequently, the album only saw an original release in Scandinavia, making it quite a rarity. The history to this recording is uncomfortable reading. Georg Kajanus was desparate to end the band and move on to new projects but Phil Pickett, Henry Marsh and Grant Serpell wanted to keep the band going, knowing they could weather the storm. This disunity is apparent in the songwriting and vocal contributions throughout the album and the photos of the time tell a story. That said, Pickett was allowed to spread his wings pre-Culture Club and pen the glorious 'Pyjama Party' and Marsh and Serpell wrote 'Stay the Night', a massive hit in Denmark. So there you have it - disjointed but with many positives. Nice to see it released on CD outside of Japan. Sailor's Biographer.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Sailor's Best! 28 Sep 2010
By Peter A. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Hideaway" (1978) was Sailor's last recorded album before the band called it quits for about a decade. Long considered a favourite amongst devoted fans and others, this album for once is a true collaboration between all band members. Prior to this, with the exception of the predecessor album "Checkpoint"(1977) where two non Georg Kajanus tracks were included, these tracks being written and performed (by Henry Marsh and drummer/percussionist Grant Serpell), Sailor's albums had been a product of Kajanus' music. Ironically enough, three of the four tracks contributed to the album by Kajanus are, I consider, some of the best tracks on the lp. The great single "Give Me Shakespeare" was a terrific album opener and generated a kind of Sailor nod to the dominant influence of punk/new wave music at the time, though mixed with Beachboyesque vocal harmonies. Kajanus's "Ashes and Diamonds" and "When It Hurts You" are strong though not dynamic pop tunes. His weakest contribution is the closing "Machines" song,well intended but a bit weak and silly really. Keyboardist/Bassist Phil Pickett, who soon after the bands split, went on to become a strong regular contributor with Culture Club, wrote and performed the punchy pop tune "Pyjama Party", as well as the sentimental but well executed "One Life, One Love, One Day". The keyboardist/guitarist Henry Marsh's collaboration with Serpell continued on this album and together they wrote and performed perhaps the album's highlight the very catchy pop tune "Stay The Night". This song was the second single release after ".....Shakespeare".
For the band to have released such a strong album just prior to their breakup I think demonstrates their musical prowess and commitment to their careers. According to the biography on the band, written a few years back, the whole effort at that stage of getting the band together to record the album must have been trying when you consider that Kajanus, in particular,and other band members, wanted to leave and do their own thing. Of course, as the story goes, they did reform about a decade later and have continued on since, performing mainly on the 'golden oldies' circuit in Europe. Kajanus, left again a long time ago and has since been replaced by a succession of singers. Marsh, who is an award winning musical writer and performer, had left but returned in recent years.
All of the band members were fine musicians in their own right before and after the concept band called Sailor, and I think this tends to be overlooked when people consider the band as purely and simply a pop band, which they were, but there was alot more to these guys than meets the eye. The bonus tracks are fine singles released around the same period as "Hideaway" but never making it onto the album. In any case the album was only released in 1978 in a few European countries, such was the lack of confidence by their record company. "All I Need Is A Girl", is another fine driving tune by Kajanus, "The Runaway" (not a Del Shannon cover) was one of Phil Pickett's first efforts and is a surprisingly bright catchy pop tune. "Copacabana" (a Pickett/ Marsh/Serpell contribution) was the instrumental b- side to "Give Me Shakespeare".

These songs were all new to me, but I enjoy them as much as the other albums I have purchased by this group.
