ALBUM COMMENT: Wikipedia
The Dream of the Blue Turtles is the first solo album by British pop singer-songwriter Sting, released in the United States on 1 June 1985, a year after The Police had unofficially disbanded. The album managed to reach number 3 in the UK Album Charts.[7] It was kept off number one in the week of its release by Marillion's Misplaced Childhood and Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA occupying the top two places. However, in the United States, the album reached number two on the Billboard 200.

It includes Sting's first hit after The Police (his first solo hit, "Spread a Little Happiness", was recorded while still a member of the Police), "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free". Though the song reached number 3 in the US, it was a relative flop in the UK, where the album's track "Russians" (about Cold War nuclear anxieties, which had peaked in the 1980s) proved more popular.

In the US The album spawned four successful singles "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free", "Fortress Around Your Heart", "Russians", and "Love Is the Seventh Wave".

The movie Bring on the Night documents some of the recording work that produced this album, as well as the subsequent tour.

The album earned Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, and Best Engineered Recording.

The album is named after a dream of Sting's.[8]

He is best known as the principal songwriter, lead singer, and bassist for the new wave rock band The Police and for his subsequent solo career.

Sting has varied his musical style, incorporating distinct elements of rock, jazz, reggae, classical, new-age, and worldbeat into his music.[1] As a solo musician and member of The Police, Sting has received 16 Grammy Awards for his work, receiving his first Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1980, three Brit Awards – winning Best British Male in 1994 and Outstanding Contribution in 2002,[2] a Golden Globe, an Emmy Award, and several Oscar nominations for Best Original Song.
