Well thankfully James McCarraher did take to the task and has written this excellent, detailed history of the band, full of interesting personal anecdotes about the band members, as well as a chronoligical account of the bands contribution to the rock music scene in the 70's. When reviewing each album release, James, writes of his own album track favourites,which adds an interesting personal touch to the whole reading experience. You feel as if you are sharing the experience with him. The book also contains some rare photographs of the band - both on and off stage - and an excellent discography at the end of the book. The discography includes all album releases (including the eagerly awaited 2 disc anthology "Buried Treasures", still not released) up to date, and the single releases over the years (including the b-sides).
James, I should mention, has written other non-Sailor related books - check his website out for more information- and will shortly release a book about the founding member and former lead man of Sailor - the fascinating Georg Kajanus.
If you're a Sailor appreciator like I am, or simply someone interested in the theatre rock music scene of the 1970's, then this book provides you with a revealing, amusing, and compelling account of one of the most underrated and under appreciated members of that loosely defined style of rock.
