Sky is the debut studio album by English Australian fusion band Sky, originally released in May 1979 via Ariola Records.

Sky were an English / Australian instrumental rock group that specialised in combining a variety of musical styles, most prominently rock, classical and jazz. The group's original and best-known line-up featured classical guitarist John Williams (Australia), bass player Herbie Flowers (England), electric guitarist Kevin Peek (Australian), drummer Tristan Fry (England) and keyboard player Francis Monkman (England).

The band formed in 1978 and began work on their debut album, writing and recording instrumental music drawing on their collective experience of classical, light pop, progressive rock and psychedelic rock, light entertainment and jazz.

Sky's self-titled debut album was released in 1979, and was highly successful in Britain and Australia, quickly reaching gold record status and eventually topping out as a platinum record. The album featured versions of Eric Satie's "Gymnopedie No. 1" and Antonio Ruiz-Pipò's "Danza", as well as original compositions by Monkman and Flowers. Monkman's “Cannonball” was a minor hit single, and the keyboard player also contributed the twenty-minute second-side composition "Where Opposites Meet", intended to combine and display the band's diverse influences.

This is a much overlooked classic album and it is wonderful to see it being reissued on vinyl again.

This is an expanded limited edition reissue 2LP set on blue coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with bonus tracks on Side C, pressed in the UK via Let Them Eat Vinyl.
