30 Day Writing Challenge: Setting Sail

Red Sails in the Sunset was written by Hugh Williams with lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy. Originally recorded by Bing Crosby and later covered by Guy Lombardo, Louis Armstrong, the song was a also big hit for Nat King Cole in 1951.
Amongst the over thirty artists to record the song was Big Joe Turner on his self titled 1957 studio album. The song did not chart for him but became one of Turner's signature pieces. Turner was perhaps better known for Honey Hush, Shake, Rattle And Roll, and Corrine Corrina
