The challenge with collecting 45 rpm records is usually the condition. Many of these got played one too many times, thrown around at parties, or played in jukeboxes over and over. I've found this 45 a couple of times, but it always sounds beat up...Pressed on styrene instead of vinyl (vinyl sounds better-to my ears anyhow ) this copy sounds OK, but not perfect.
Always loved this song. Love the production, arrangement and songwriting especially.
Is she really on a ship, with her "captain" giving her advice over the ship speakers, or is " her ship " her own body, her own self?
Or maybe it's just her conscience telling her the truth about her decisions while she travels and floats along on the ship...
It's beautiful, moody, and happy all at the same time.
