Boomkat Product Review:
Classy (by definition) 19-track compilation of late '70s West Coast Yachtpop "you can almost dance to", featuring suave gems from White Horse, Ned Doheny, Jan Hammer Group, The Doobie Brothers and many more. Yacht Pop, like Balearic, is one of those genres-not-genres that you'll recognise when you hear it, probably accompanied by images of tanned beautiful people in '70s designer garb quaffing cocktails and casually banging ounces of Columbia's finest. It's that sound where synth-gilded MOR rock and soulful, blue-eyed pop mingle prior to going below deck. There's some beauties on this set, from Jan Hammer Group's nice and easy 'Don't You Know' to Fleetwood Mac's 'Sugar Daddy' and the synth heavy symphonics of Alessi Brothers' 'Do You Feel It?', all primed for debonaire swingers sessions and your parent's dinner parties.
