This is a song you probably wouldn,t expect from Rod, compared to all his other great works. However it has a hauntingly beautiful string section, that gives it credence. It also was the theme to the series in the 70s about the Ark Royal, if I remember rightly. It is by far and away one of his best ever creations, musically and lyrically. I am not a great fan of all his music, especially the songbook albums, he sings rock much better, although you may say this is a rock creation, it is a masterpiece, in my opinion and well worth having in your collection. If you know your lyrics, you will know what I mean when I say, Its well worth flying with him on this one.
