1975, Music: "Sailor"

In 1975 the British pop group Sailor scored with three hit-singles in the charts: "Sailor", "A Glass of Champagne" and "Girls, Girls, Girls" (1975-1976). Sailor was formed in 1973 out of an earlier cooperation of the singer-songwriter duo Georg Kajanus and Phil Pickett with the addition of musicians Henry Marsh and Grant Serpell. The group's first UK single was "Traffic Jam" from their first album, Sailor. The band split up in 1978.
