It could certainly have given David Soul a run for it's money in the UK charts (who had a brief but sucessful pop career in 1976/77). What a great find.
I was sort of wondering if I'd posted into thin air with that one. I hadn't any idea about it, either. I knew he did some singing back in the day, but I didn't know any of it had actually made its way onto a record. I sat on it for a long time (if you look back in this thread, I teased you guys about a "rare find", and this was it) because I needed to get my record-to-mp3 converter back after my move. But when I listened to them, I was amazed at how good he sounds--he actually has a pretty good voice. Did you listen to both tracks? I prefer "Sail Away" of the two, but I "We of All People" is good, too.
