SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This is a decent & accessible pop fusion rock album, although there is nothing really outstanding here. The music is made of electric guitar sometimes quite hard rock, many surprisingly good saxophones parts, drums and bass. The album is pretty unequal: there are many better parts than other ones. The keyboards are VERY rare on this album. The singer has a good voice. This is a rather disappointing supergroup, because we expect more from them due to their impressive backgrounds.

4 stars Another unexpected delight, one I found at the Goodwill, of all places!

Something of a second-string supergroup (comprised of Mick Rogers from the original line-up of Manfred Mann's Earth Band, John G. Perry from Caravan and Quantum Jump, Clive Bunker of Jethro Tull and Jack Lancaster of Blodwyn Pig), Aviator began life as a quartet of guitar, bass, sax and drums. You'll surely note the presence of synths here, they were all played by Lancaster not on keyboards, but on his Computone Wind Synthesizer Driver, which I'm sure must have been trailblazing.

I'd never heard anyone talking about this release before I bought my cheapie vinyl copy. Imagine my great surprise to learn it was actually quite good. "Keep Your Heart Right" is a strong, brooding, atmospheric number. The high-energy "Silver Needles" is perhaps my favourite tune on the album, brimming over with exciting riffage. The slow-burn "Country Morning" and another atmospheric piece, "Morning Journey", are other apexes.

The shorter songs are worthwhile as well. "Cleveland Ohio", with it's unforgettable synth hook, and the surging rocker "Greed" are personal favourites.

So, four great, proven musicians making excellent music. What's not to like? It's not on CD, but the vinyl is dirt cheap and not at all hard to find if you're diligent. A superb bargain-bin staple.

3 stars Aviataor can be considered as a super grup of the late '70's. All 4 musicians had allready an impressive background in bands like Manfred Mann's Earh Band, Jethro Tull, Caravan, Quantum Jump. Each musician had their own style and aproach and is clear that the album in the end sounds good, but very pale in contrast with their talent . On drums is famous early JT drumer Clive Bunker, on vocals and guitar is Mick Rogers from Manfred Mann's Earth Band (the most famous years of the band), on bass from John G. Perry from Caravan and Quantum Jump fame and on sax and other brass arrangements Jack Lancaster from the blues rock band Blodwyn Pig. So, a line up hard to beat, but the music is quite unintristing in places and very mainstrem progressive rock aproach. Even the progressive rock featured here is kinda easy to listen, some moments are very good like on Morning Journey or Silver Needles, great pieces that shows how great is Mick Rogers both on vocals and guitar in the '70's. So, a pleasent album as a whole, nothing over the top here, still I like very much Rogers voice, I've always did , MMEB with him is excellent, here did a good job, less intristing then on MMEB works but still good. I also like the guitar on some pieces, for ex the end of the last piece Morning Journey is absolute superb. So 3 stars for this discrete band who never made it in progressive rock filed, even the musicians were among the best of golden era of prog.

3 stars Goodness me, I have been trying to get a CD copy of this lost piece of prog glory for such a while now (30 years by last account), my vinyl becoming a sandbox of gritty snap, crackle and pop pebbles. The story of Aviator is a classic scenario of a hugely talented band that wilted under the anti-prog stance of the late 70s, pounded mercilessly into oblivion by a media frenzy dominated by punk and new wave bands. Mick Rogers is , in my humble opinion, the most underrated guitarist in Progland, his contributions to Manfred Mann's Erath Band are stuff of legends (check out his sulfurous axe solos on "Visionary Mountain", "Martha's Madman", "Solar Fire", "Father of Night/Father of Day" and many more) , former Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker is outright legendary , while John G. Perry is , perhaps the most underrated bass player ever, a fretless stylist of great repute (Gordon Giltrap, Anthony Phillips, Caravan and Quantum Jump , plus two magical solo albums). Throw in Jack Lancaster of Blodwyn Pig and Colosseum on sax and lyricon and you have the makings of a prog super group. The artwork on this debut 1979 album (ooh, bad year for prog!) is still among my all-time faves, being an SR-71 Blackbird aficionado. All great ingredients except for the poor timing, this album basically went nowhere, as the demands of the market were clearly anti-prog, which meant more commercial constraints that artists had to follow (ELP, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Gentle Giant and many more were guilty of such outside pressures) and ultimately wound up being counterproductive in every single way.

The set list is comprised of 3 distinct attitudes, the dashingly progressive jewels such as the magnificent "Keep Your Heart Right", the brooding "Country Morning" (sounding a lot like Italian prog/fusion band Nova) and its companion "Morning Journey". These are absolute prog classics that still stand the test of time and are entirely worthy of attention.

Then there are the outright rockers like the exuberant "Silver Needles" and its extended instrumental platform, "Greed" and the brash "Cleveland Ohio" (great loopy synthesizer riff) which veer near Spooky Tooth/Foreigner- like territory, but graced by some monstrous guitar playing.

And finally the poppy in-betweens such as the rambling and jagged opener "Your Loving Is My Home", "Evil Eye" , "Time Traveller" , all positive ear-candy but far from progressive , outside of a few twists and turns that keep things interesting.

Obviously, Aviator is more of a footnote than a sheer prog accomplishment but its scarcity make it a valuable addition to a progressive rock collection.

5 stars A hard to find album, not yet released on CD, by some great musicians. Mick Rogers is known for his work in Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Clive Bunker played drums in Jethro Tull a million years ago and was later in Blodwyn Pig with Jack Lancaster. And last but not least the great John G. Perry f ... (read more)
