German Oldie magazine "Good Times":
SAILOR: GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! - THE VERY BEST OF SAILOR
Captain Georg Kajanus and his SAILORs suddenly appeared in the middle of the 70s and impressed the pop-fans (mostly in Germany) with great sing-along melodies and a sympathic, fresh, moody live show. Songs like "A Glass Of Champagne", "One Drink Too Many", "Trouble In Hong Kong" and "The Old Nickelodeon Sound" sounded completely fresh, because SAILOR did not have any stylistic idols. And no successors either: when their creative-battery was empty, Punk and New Wave reacted. That's why their funny-beat sound survived and still sounds absolutely fresh today.
Reviews from fans...
November 2002 - Geoff
Hall, Herts, England:
Please release their studio albums....
I saw SAILOR in London in the mid-70s when they were at their height. They performed most of these songs. They were good then and they sound just as energetic and orginal now. Quirky little tunes, written mostly by Kajanus, and played with the famous nickleodeons about life on the seas, in foeign cities and shores.
