Sale Price: $99.00 (You save $40.99 / 29%)


  • Excellent sound throughout with each side earning an outstanding Double Plus (A++) grade and playing fairly quietly
  • Both sides here are big, full and natural with rich bass and the energy that's missing from the average copy
  • Our favorite Newman album for both music and sonics (12 Songs being the main competition)
  • 5 stars: "Whether he's writing for three pieces or 30, Newman makes superb use of the sounds available to him, and his vocals are the model of making the most of a limited instrument. Overall, Sail Away is one of Newman's finest works, musically adventurous and displaying a lyrical subtlety that would begin to fade in his subsequent works."
