Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Thursday, 23 June 2022 is Sailor (album).
Sailor is the second studio album by American rock band Steve Miller Band, released in October 1968 by Capitol Records. It was recorded in Los Angeles, California, and was produced by the band along with Glyn Johns, who also produced the band's first album, Children of the Future. 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 and blues rock sound. Tracks "Living in the U. S. A." and "Quicksilver Girl" later received additional notice when the former was covered in 1969 by Wilmer & the Dukes and the latter was included in the popular 1984 movie The Big Chill.
It was voted number 353 in the third edition of Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000). In 2012, Edsel Records remastered the album.
