2023/4 Albums Thing 298 - Sailcat “Motorcycle Mama”

Posted on


This album is bloody awful…except for two things. It’s the worst kind of half-arsed American country rock, think Dr Hook but not nearly that good, apart from, right in the middle of side 1 is a piece of instrumental dancefloor dynamite called “Highway Rider”. It’s a proper Northern Soul banger it’s just that the lead instrument is slide guitar !

The second great thing about this record is the sleeve, designed and drawn by Jack Davis of Mad magazine fame. It must have been the sleeve that enticed me into playing it and thus discovering “Highway Rider”, I can’t think of any other reason why I would have put it on.
