Red Sails In The Sunset was first released in October 1984 under the Columbia Records label. It was recorded and produced in Tokyo, Japan and is significant for becoming their first No. 1 album in Australia.

The cover image, by Japanese artist Tsunehisa Kimura, depicts Sydney Harbour after a hypothetical nuclear strike. Some of its tracks were performed live in January 1985 at a Sydney Harbour Goat Island concert to celebrate radio station Triple J's 10th birthday.

Red Sails In The Sunset contains the only Midnight Oil tracks with lead vocals provided by their drummer Rob Hirst, When The Generals Talk and Kosciusko. The album spawned two singles, When The Generals Talk and Best of Both Worlds.

Newly remastered for vinyl, 180gm audiophile vinyl.
