Midnight Oil - Red Sails in the Sunset

Red Sails in the Sunset is an album by Midnight Oil that was released in 1984 under the CBS record label. This album was recorded and produced in Tokyo, Japan and is significant for becoming their first No. 1 in Australia (it entered also the US Billboard 200). The cover image contains a striking depiction of Sydney Harbour after a hypothetical nuclear strike. This album contained tracks that were performed at their Sydney Harbour goat island concert in 1985 in tandem with 2JJJ-FM 105.7 celebrating 2JJJ-FM's 10th birthday, which was filmed by ABC Television and subsequently broadcast on their then Tuesday night music program, Rock Arena.
