Sailor – Trouble (1975) – Lp

Sailor are a British pop group, best known in the 1970s for their hit singles “A Glass of Champagne” and “Girls, Girls, Girls”, written by the group’s lead singer and 12-string guitar player, Georg Kajanus.













Artist:  Sailor
Title:  Trouble
Year:  1975
Format:  LP
Label:  Epic Records
Catalog#  EPC 69192

The group’s leader, Georg Kajanus, had previously written “Flying Machine” for Cliff Richard in 1971, although it was Richard’s first British single that failed to reach the Top 30. Sailor was formed out of the earlier incarnation of singer-songwriter duo, ‘Kajanus Pickett’, after Phil Pickett and Kajanus met in 1970 at E H Morris, a music publisher where Pickett briefly worked. They later recorded the album Hi Ho Silver for Signpost Records. Sailor first came together in 1973 with the addition of musicians Henry Marsh (ex-Gringo) and Grant Serpell (ex-Affinity).
The groups’ work included Kajanus’ invention, the Nickelodeon, made of pianos, synthesisers, and glockenspiels that allowed the four piece band to reproduce on stage the acoustic arrangements that they had done in the recording studio.
“Trouble” contained the bands two biggest hits (mainly in the UK, Europe and Australia) the Roxyesque “A Glass Of Champagne” and “Girls, Girls, Girls”- and was a good hyper commercial album.
