A compilation of classic 70s/80s AOR tracks, that make up the genre of Yacht Rock – smooth rock at its best!
“So what of AOR, in fact what do we even mean by Adult Orientated Rock? It’s the music that sold albums by the truckload in the 70s and 80s, to an audience of rock fans who had graduated college and were getting stuck in to grown up jobs whilst listening to singers wearing per-ironic mullets. It was well-produced and nicely performed and just a little glossy. […]These records could contain a hell of a lot of soul. Singers such as Daryl Hall or Michael McDonald had the best blue-eyed soul voices in the US and when they had hits many others tried to copy them.” (AOR Breaks liner notes).
