Biography by Tim Sendra

Johnny Wyker aka SAILCAT

Sailcat was a Southern rock band who had a chart and radio hit in 1972 with "Motorcycle Mama." The single's success (it reached number 12 on the Billboard singles chart) led to appearances on American Bandstand and at Carnegie Hall. Sailcat released a self-titled album in 1972 for Elektra that featured many of the heavy-hitters in the Southern rock field such as Chuck Leavell, the Memphis Horns, and Pete Carr. Soon after releasing the album, Sailcat broke up. Sailcat leader Johnny Wyker, who had been a member of the Rubber Band who recorded the original version of "Let Love Come Between Us," later a hit for James and Bobby Purify, went on to play with many of the great Southern rock musicians like Eddie Hinton, Dan
n Penn, Delany Bramlett, among others. He is currently working on a benefit project called The Mighty Field of Vision Anthem, a group dedicated to raising funds for musicians who have fallen on hard times.Checkout

Some Great Work
This is a great album. Truly some of Wyker's best work, It was recorded in Muscle Shoals Alabama and features guitar greats Wayne Perkins, Pete Carr, David Hood as well as the Muscle Shoals Rythm Section aka The Swampers, not to mention Wyker's genious songwriting ability. The absolute BEST song I've ever heard is on this album "Be Thankful" is an especially great song very applicable to the world situation today with war and the constant threat of violence, very inspiring.
