Special Deluxe Collector's Edition / 1st time on CD in Europe / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / Classic AOR / 12 page full colour booklet 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, rare photos and band involvement. WE HERE AT Rock Candy love to champion the underdog, acts that slipped beneath the radar before disappearing altogether. It's a murky and sadly depressing world, one occupied by some of the world's most talented musicians robbed of success by factors outside of their sphere of influence. Airborne were one such act. They were an amazingly proficient band crafting some of the best melodic rock that had ever been crafted yet somehow their fate was sealed when record company politics reared its ugly head. Featuring future producer Beau Hill (Ratt, Winger, Warrant), and signed to Columbia Records, this highly gifted five piece band recorded the debut album under the superior production guidance of Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Rick Springfield, Sammy Hagar), in Los Angeles and London (AIR studios) resulting in one of the era's most compelling and streamlined records. Comparable with the best work of Styx, Touch and Foreigner the accent was on lovingly constructed songs underpinned with meaty guitar riffs and exquisitely crafted vocals, layered to perfection. Originally issued in 1979, the album attracted a slew of favourable reviews but just when things were looking to take off, including a proposed tour with the Cars, the President of Columbia Records jumped ship leaving the band high and dry with the new regime deeming Airborne as yesterday's news. It was, in effect, a knockout blow. However we still have their sole album to remind us what could've been. Track listing: The Lady Knows Best; Feel Like Lovin'; Ghost Of Love; Wastin' My Time; No Exception To The Rule; Soldier Of Fortune; That's Where My Love Goes; Life In The City; Stand Up; Optimystical

When I bought it, it was not an import.
The music samples & track titles that amazon provided appear to be from some jazz fusion album,(not from the actual Airborne CD I own A27569 (REWIND 55019-2).
The correct album tracks are as follows:
1. The lady knows best
2. feel like lovin'
3. ghost of love
4. wastin' my time
5. no exception to the rule
6. soldier of fortune
7. that's where my love goes
8. life in the city
9. stand up
And the genre format is soft-rock to light progressive, if you didn't know who
the group was, you might think you were listening to a bit of Styx mixed in with some tracks that sound exactly like early Journey, (music only, I'm not going to assume that the singer sounds at all like Steve Perry) from the same time period, (late 70's).
Both of which were main staples of AOR FM radio in the late 70's early 80's.
