5.0 out of 5 stars A blast from the past! 7 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
Considering the CD was sourced from the States; price, packaging and speed of delivery, were exemplary. Having comprehensively missed 'Pilot of the Airwaves' original playlisting when released (working in the West of Scotland then..) Radio Clyde never played it to my knowledge; when Terry Wogan started including it regularly in his playlisting, the song just stuck in my head, but all my recent endeavours to source the album the song came from came to nothing, until now.
The Album is no one track wonder, it's full of clever, and musically superb songs, it's just intriguing how the great British music buying public manage to overlook such a talent. Never mind, I've now got the album, and am a very happy bunny!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Missed Talent 23 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pilot Of The Airwaves is the first track, and the one that many will know Charlie Dore for. The song reached number 11 on the Billboard listings but managed only 66 on the UK top 75 in November 1979, In spite of heavy airplay. It was a popular radio track, and I heard it a fair few times. I bought the single, and the follow up, Fear Of Flying, which is also on this her first studion album.

Where To Now was recorded in Nashville and when it was brought back to the UK the people at Island Records thought it a bit too "country" , so they had it re-mixed by Joe Boyd and also got Bruce Welch and Alan Tarney to re-record a few of the tracks, includiong the two songs previously mention. It would be easy to dismiss this album because of the failure of the single taken from it. But to do that would be to do Charlie Dore a massive injustice. There are other equally strong tracks on here other than the two singles. Track 2, Falling, also the "B" side of the first single, is also worthy of mentioning. The album shows here wide vocal range and some, although not me, have made comparisons to Judie Tzuke.

All in all this is a worthwhile listen and all credit to Lemon Recordings for getting the licence from Universal to re-issue this.

Outstanding! Delivery and condition literally first class and CD content by Charlie is timeless. "Pilot of the Airwaves" sounded like it could have been written and recorded this month!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Missed Opportunity 25 Mar 2007
By the Wizard, fkap - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is the closest thing in music to a "cult movie." It is known by very few, but highly prized by her fans. Since no CD was ever made available, old and scratched LP's were sold and traded and bootleg CD's (made the the scratchy vinyl with all the pops, hiss and hum) were copied for friends.

But her fan base is so small and select, even illegal mp3's were rarely found on the web.

It is a shame that this reissue didn't include any supplimental material or bonus tracks. If anyone actually remembers the hit "Pilot of the Airways" they will be disappointed because the album version is very different from the single that played on the radio. The should have at least added the single version.

I wish real audiophile label had released the reissue. Compared to the wonderful reissues of artists like Chad & Jeremy Of Cabbages & Kings, Harper's Bizarre Anything Goes or The Free Design You Could Be Born Again, this is a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Missed Opportunity Yes but ... 27 Jun 2007
By Jeffrey C. Bullock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes, it may have been a missed opportunity but somehow I get the feeling that nothing extra was ever recorded for this album - or if there was, it was probably discarded in the excess and carelessness of the Seventies - more importantly, we do get to hear one of the most beautiful voices God has ever graced us with, finally on CD. I was pleasantly surprised when I bought the original album becoz there aren't any weak songs on it. Maybe a better idea would've been to take the best songs off her next album, "Listen!" and filled out this CD with them - I, for one, am overjoyed to finally hear this beautiful voice on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars got this fantastic CD after 30 years 24 Mar 2009
By matt.mingkee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pilot of the Airwave
Here is my request
You don't have to play but I hope you do with it
I've been listening to the show on the radio
and you seem like a friend to me...

how fantastic it is!
I heard this tune 30 years ago from radio, and I loved this sweet voice
now, I have the CD
the music type is kinda familiar.....from another favorite singer, KT Tunstall, esp "Eye of the Telescope"
the 4th track, "Where to Now", resembles the first track, and I like it also
Sad Old World, Sleepless, Wise Owl, Sweetheart are good too
even you never heard of her, you should get it if you like KT Tunstall

5.0 out of 5 stars 1979/1980 9 April 2012
By Mr. Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I do not understand how this CD could be a disappointment "the Wizard, fkap". For 30 some years this CD Charlie Dore- "Where To Now" has sat in the vaults and waited for someone to rerelease it. Well I say THANK YOU!! What a great CD "Pilot Of The Airways" was and will always be a great song but check out the song "Wise Owl" another great song. This CD is just full of good tracks try "Sad Old World and "Sweetheart". Again thanks for rereleasing this CD I myself find if very enjoyable and going back 30 some years ago.
