Remastered By The Master As Only The Master Can Engineer And A great Album
on 25 March 2017
This is truly a great great album. I had the original vinyl back in the 60's and was "Lying in Wait" for this to arrive on disc. I love just about every song on this disc and the mastering is very well done on the British import version on EMI/Capitol. I also have a remastered version that is also British but I see very little difference between the two although the album was recorded very well in the extremely capable hands of Glyn Johns. He is a master at his trade. The disc opens with an instrumental entitled "Song for Our Ancestors" - a nice instrumental followed by the soft ballad-like "Dear Mary". Another great tune "My Friend" is sort of a great rocker with a soulish bass line. The Alan Bown version, which is still good does not hold a candle to this version. The all-time classic tune known as "Living in The USA" is next and is another fantastic tune. "Quicksilver Girl" follows and is quite a mellow and if I might add, light tuned song. "Lucky Man" kinda grows on you after you've heard it a few times as does "Gangster of Love" which I really like a lot. "You're So Fine" is ,to me, an iffy tune followed by another classic great entitled "Overdrive", a really moving rocking tune and the disc ends with the fantasstic rocker called "Dime-A-Dance Romance" and I think you will love that one as I do. So, there you have it the "Sailor" album by The Steve Miller Band. I loved this one so much, that I have to get their first album "Children of The Future".
