Extra notes on cover, middle (gatefold sleeve) and any inserts

Once in a while there comes a sound that captures an emotion. No-one tells you, you know it. The tingle down the spine, the excited knot in the stomach, the lump in the throat, the goose pimples tell you, and for many of us that moment came when a great ship bared its soul and sang wistfully and longingly of its homeland and its loved ones. It was when Her Majesty's Ship, The Ark Royal, took the BBC and 10 million viewers to sea for 10 weeks and the award award winning series "Sailor" was born. This is about a ship, a time and a song - her song - "Sailing."Royalties from the sale of this record will be donated to Naval charities (Fleet Amenities Fund)
