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.
