Never a chore to hear a harmonica, but otherwise “Sailor”s easy tempo becalms the track too easily. A snoozer, and an oddly archaic one from such a young singer: Petula’s stout-hearted vocals and massed backing seem to hark back to the early 50s and the likes of Vera Lynn. The cowpoke arrangement just doesn’t fit her style well (and it isn’t terribly nautical either). A curio at most.
