Plain Sailing (song)

"Plain Sailing" is a song written and recorded by Tracey Thorn.


The original version appeared on Thorn's first solo album A Distant Shore in 1982. It was re-recorded and released as Thorn's first single on 7" vinyl later that year. The b-side "Goodbye Joe" is a cover version of a song by fellow Cherry Red Records recording artists Monochrome Set.

The re-recorded version of "Plain Sailing" was included on the Cherry Red Pillows & Prayers compilation album.

The single sleeve featured the Robert Doisneau photograph Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville) and hand-lettering by Thorn herself.

Thorn did not release another solo single until "It's All True" 25 years later.
