Sail on Sailor

29 Jan, 1973

During it’s 1973 release, Sail on Sailor reaches #79 on the Billboard charts. It reaches #49 on the charts when it is re-released in 1975. The song is written by Brian Wilson, Ray Kennedy, Tandyn Almer, Jack Rieley, and Van Dyke Parks. Jardine states:

Blondie as a singer on Sail On, Sailor I mean, holy Toledo! (laughs) He sang that so well plus he did a lot of the high parts on that record. He was singing a good deal of the tenor parts, a lot of the full voice high parts long with us.
