Pictures #0001-1495


The next band to spin off from Jethro Tull or from one of its individual components- Aviator- released their first album, the self-titled debut- on February 13, 1979.  Aviator featured Clive Bunker (drummer and percussion from Jethro Tull), Jack Lancaster (all saxophones and brass instruments from Blodwyn Pig), John G. Perry (bass/vocals from a studio career), and Mick Rogers (guitars and vocals from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band).  In a way, this was yet another super group and to say the least, the first album did quite well among fans of English rock.  Sadly, however, the remastered CD does not hold up to the original vinyl recording as no one knows from where the tapes for this pressing originated.  Still, the album is a good one and if you want to hear some glorious rock music, this is a must-own.  Seek it out, give it a good listen, and add it to your collection.
