Yacht Rock is a term that refers to a golden age of American artists from late 70s and early 80s, whose focus was on making studio magic. Bands like Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Toto and The Eagles, whose members had a history in session work, and who held recording prowess in the highest regard.
Having once being knocked as a kind of yuppie cheese, Yacht Rock is enjoying something of a renaissance. The sounds are escapist, soulful and smooth, with huge harmonies and intricate studio mastery so precise it makes the eyes water. Skill is something that s undeniable amongst the Yacht Rock greats - musicianship was a huge part of the scene. It even inspired a pastiche mockumentary , originally aired on American station 101 with a bad on purpose aesthetic and a cult following. This album acts as the perfect introduction to Yacht Rock , and brings together the best artists from the genre.
