Sailor is the second studio album by American rock group The Steve Miller Band, released in October 1968 by Capitol Records. Like The Steve Miller Band's previous album, Children of the Future, Sailor was produced by Glyn Johns. Unlike its predecessor which was recorded in London, England, Sailor was recorded in Los Angeles, California. It was the last Steve Miller Band album to feature contributions by original members Boz Scaggs and Jim Peterman. Scaggs went on to a successful solo career. The album features a psychedelic blues rock sound.
Avant garde. Eccentric. A maniac. Wild and adventurous. Off the wall. Extraordinary. No marketing hyperbole - this is how the players of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment describe Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach and his music. One of the many children of JS Bach, CPE Bach always lived in his father’s shadow, and now is an almost unknown figure at least beyond the classical cogniscenti. How can such an unknown be considered a gamechanger? A listen to his music reveals just why – it constantly shifts, wrongfooting the listener when they least expect it with wild changes of direction and colour – it is bright, effervescent, and is a fascinating link between the music of his father (and the Baroque era) and Joseph Haydn (and the Classical era).
This compilation and 10th release from Larry Miller features tracks recorded over the last 10 years. There are three previously unreleased songs and the remaining tracks taken from five previous CDs, have all been remixed by Larrys long term sound engineer and co producer Neil Sadler at No Machine Studios, Wokingham, Berkshire. Larry chose the songs to highlight different sides of his song writing and guitar skills and to show that hes not just an in yer face blues rocker. Following Larry Millers stroke in August 2015, there are a lot of fans waiting for a new release and to be able to help Larry by buying his CDs. Larry continues to improve and hopes to be back on stage in the autumn winter 2016.
