Four score and seven days we'd been adrift on the fickle ocean - nothing but ships biscuits and brackish rain water for the main share of it and that all gone now. The whale had returned in the night with murder in his heart. Had it not been for Perkins' sacrifice I fear I would not be writing this now - God rest his soul. By His grace we recovered the poor lad's battered corpse and gave him the last rites. 'Fetch the CD', the captain had said, 'fetch me down Yacht Rock and play it for this worthy soul'.

The soft strains of Chicago drifted out on the morning breeze: 'If you leave me now, you take a way the biggest part of me...'

As one, sixteen burly seamen echoed '...oooooo no, baby please don't go...'

I admit no shame but I shed a tear at that.

'Crack open the last cask of urine', the captain cried as the curiously apt 'Take The Long Way Home' came on the stereo. By the time Average White Band's 'Let's Go Round Again began, we were all ready to do just that

The term yacht rock was, it seems, originally intended as an insult, but music that might once have been described as soft rock, adult oriented rock, American rock or seventies rock is the basis of what is apparently now described as yacht rock. I won't even attempt to differentiate between the categories, but having been attracted by the title, I liked this compilation enough to buy it.

Most of the songs should be familiar even if you don't instantly recognize them from the titles. Most of the artists are American, with a few Brits. Most of the artists are men, with a few women. Most of the tracks are of a very high quality. Going into detail about them all seems pointless.

This is a great compilation, whatever the title. Whoever invented the term yacht rock, intending it to be an insult, must be gutted that the term - and the music - have been accepted.

In the 70s and 80s people like me were too busy with punk, indie, electro and rap to bother buying the music formerly known as AOR (plus of course, in those days I didn't have the budget). It may not have been cool at the time (though some of it was), but that doesn't mean it wasn't any good. In fact many of these recordings were made on very high budgets in the best studios with the best musicians - and it shows. Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories", for example, was a homage to this era and the painstaking way some of these records were made. Anyone who has never yearned to hear at least some of the selections on here isn't a true music fan in my opinion (unless they're Morrissey). "Yacht Rock" contains most of the tracks you (sometimes unspokenly) liked at the time but never quite got round to buying, or never needed to buy because they were on the radio or MTV so often - Fat Larry's Band "Zoom", anyone? OK so maybe some of it's a little over familiar - Boston's "More Than A Feeling" for example but there are more hits than misses, and it's chock full of songs that you didn't know you knew. Virtually every track must have been on the soundtrack of "Miami Vice" (the TV series) at one time or another - hence the CD cover, I presume. If this album only contained Don Henley's "Boys of Summer" and Bruce Hornsby's "The Way It Is" my happiness would be complete.

It's now officially hip to be square, not that it ever wasn't. Roll on volume 2?
