The extraordinary interweaving of electric guitar and Mellotron by Robert Fripp on 'Sailor's Tale,' is one of the highlights of the early- to mid-period group's output. Some of the music here overstays its welcome — several of the six tracks are extended too far, out of the need to fill up an LP — but the virtuosity of the band picks up most of the slack on the composition side: Collins' saxes and Wallace's drums keep things much more than interesting in tandem with Fripp's guitar and Mellotron, and guest vocalist Paulina Lucas' keening accompaniment carries parts of 'Formentera Lady' that might otherwise have dragged.
