Sting~Original OZ LP Dream of the blue turtle EX 1985 Alt Pop Rock Police


The dream of the blue turtle

Original OZ LP released in 1985 on A&M Records. Cat: RML53134. Comes with printed inner bag and foldout lyric insert both in Near Mint condition.

Sting had a lot to prove on his first post-Police effort, and he proved himself up to the task of establishing a distinctive identity as a solo artist. Instead of replicating his reggae-tinged Police style, he ventured into new realms, hiring top drawer American jazz musicians like Branford Marsalis, Kenny Kirkland and drum monster Omar Hakim to accompany him on the kind of harmonically sophisticated (though decidedly non-jazz) tunes he'd begun working on towards the end of the Police's lifetime (see SYNCHRONICITY). There's still a touch of reggae on the open-hearted "Love Is the Seventh Wave," and even a funked-up version of the formerly abstract Police tune "Shadows In The Rain," but most of the tunes here (except the pop smash "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" are the kind of literate, adult-friendly sophisto-pop that would become a template for his subsequent solo recordings.   

Tracks: If you love somebody set them free/ Love is the seventh wave/ Russians/ Childrens' crusade/ Shadows in the rain/ We work the black seam/ Consider me gone/ The dream of the blue turtles/ Moon over Bourbon Street/ Fortress around your heart.

There is a tiny sticker on A-side of label. Record is in Excellent condition. Cover is in Excellent condition.
