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.

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
[This review was found scrawled on a piece of driftwood off the coast of Madagascar.].
It's now officially hip to be square, not that it ever wasn't. Roll on volume 2?
