Sailing by Rod Stewart was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 6, 1975 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was originally recorded by the Sutherland Brothers on their Lifeboat album in 1972. It was written by their bassist Gavin Sutherland. Stewart related to the song's theme of homesickness (the high rate of tax in the UK had forced him to move to America) and he recorded his version at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with a choir assembled by Bob Crewe, the Four Seasons' producer.
