USA promotion material for the "Trouble" album:
Throughout Europe SAILOR have unquestionably arrived at stardom. Their unique vocal style and musical approach, complemented by a thoroughly unusual stage show has captivated the continent's live, T.V. and radio audiences alike.
single, Glass Of Champagne, hit the #1 spot on
the British charts. Producer Jeff Lesser and Rupert Holmes of
widescreen production fame produced it, and while Rupert was on
the phone during the production chores with Barbra (Streisand,
that is), Jeff laid down the tracks that were to finally become
SAILOR's 2nd American album release. SAILOR, incidentally, had it
so together while in the studio Jeff and Rupert had no trouble
(no pun intended) in capturing the group on tape. The technical
aspects were their own concern.
Trouble (without doubt SAILOR's best effort to date) toasts the broad spectrum of musical tastes with such selections as Glass Of Champagne, Girls Girls Girls, People in Love, and Stop that Man, to name but a few.
As a totally unique entity SAILOR reflect this character even in their instruments. The Nickelodeon (bearing no resemblance to those old carnival-styled machines which decorated the corners of old dusty pool halls and soda canteens) is an instrument designed by head singer Georg Kajanus, which combines the crisp clean sound of a glockenspiel and the electronic manoeuvrability of a synthesiser. The results are stunningly infectious and form the basic from which their sound emanates.
The Nickelodeon is just one clue to the source of SAILOR's particular style of magic. The others are on this LP. SAILOR. Their latest LP is in your hands. Why not take 29 minutes and 25 seconds and get into Trouble. It could become a habit, you know.
Thanks to Dave Rossi (USA) for this "Trouble" promotion material!
