in
London, UK - September 1974
TV: "Sailor In Concert"


SAILOR's very first performance ever...!!
This was a TV show for BBC II "In Concert" in September 1974, where they presented songs from their first album and also the B-side of their first single: "Harbour".
SAILOR have always remembered this concert as being an altogether terrifying experience. Never having played to an audience before, to find yourself in front of five or six TV cameras capturing your every movement for millions of people to witness live was an unforgettable experience.
Georg: "I've never been so terrified in my whole life. It's the sort of thing sane people wouldn't do!"
Henry: "I remember our facial expressions that night were mouths that smiled and eyes that screamed!"
Phil: "My heartbeat was so loud, I thought it was being picked up by the microphone!"
Grant: "I was a drummer who found himself playing the main Nickelodeon part in 'A Sailor's Night On The Town' on live TV, knowing that if I got lost during the playing of the part I'd never find my way back!"
