Synopsis

Album Description
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1976 album from the British Pop trio including bonus tracks. Signed to EMI in April 1974, consummate musicians David Paton/Billy Lyall/Stuart Tosh expertly meshed catchy tunes, punchy guitars and strong harmonies to score major international success with three albums in three years. This third album was recorded at Morin Heights in Quebec, Canada and this time had Roy Thomas Baker (Queen) producing. Heavier Power Pop sound and songwriting contributions from more band members mark this album as a progression. It still retains the Pilot stamp of quality, and yielded a major hit in the single 'Penny In My Pocket' . This edition features the demo version from David Paton's archive, together with three more unreleased songs as bonus tracks. RPM. 2009.

CD Reviews

Everything you're looking for if you are in to rock'n roll!
Joohan Kim | Seoul, Korea | 04/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A bonafide rock band of the 20th century and this album shows you why! Every note they play gets your attention. A must-but CD!"
A must-have!
Caetano Scatena | São Paulo, SP Brazil | 04/12/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a true rock'n'roll fan, Morin Heights is a must-have item.Great guitar playing by Bairnson (evidently he took the heaviest duty in the album) and David Paton going heavier display a new route headed by Pilot, under the production of Roy Thomas Baker instead of Alan Parsons.Not enough, in a time of chronic lack of talent like nowadays, it's very good to go back to the basics: good, honest, heartplayed rock'n'roll. Buy it!"
A classic

"david paton is the most under rated songwriter he ranks next to macca. his bass guitar works and ian bairnsons guitar solo on penny in my pocket is a blinder,"
