Aviary (CD)
Special Deluxe Collector's Edition / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / Classic AOR/Pomp rock / Includes 'Soaring', Mystic Sharon' and 'Anthem For The USA' / 12 page full colour booklet, 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, photos and new interview. OF ALL THE great pomp bands that flourished during the 1970s, and here we can include the likes of Styx, Kansas, Trillion, and Starcastle, five piece West Coast unit Aviary were, in many ways, the kings of the genre. Grandiose, pompous, bombastic and completely impervious to fashion, the unique song writing talent of vocalist Brad Love and the musical skills he and his fellow band members brought to this album still make it (some thirty years after the fact) a very special work of beauty. Veterans of the Washington/Seattle music scene (they featured ex members of uber obscurities such as Bighorn and Russia) the band's demo tape eventually found its way into the hands of British impresario Brian Lane. who was at the time managing prog-gods Yes. Signed to Epic records, the band were ushered into the studio with renowned producer Gary Lyons (Foreigner, UFO, Lone Star) overseeing their flamboyant musical proficiency. Originally issued in 1979, the album truly side-swiped the music world. Brimming with epically constructed songs and audacious arrangements, the contents were truly mind blowing, calling to mind the most highfalutin works of Queen and Yes, together with the art-rock of Be Bop Deluxe and Sparks. It was a veritable smorgasbord of indulgence that cemented their place in the pomp rock hall of fame as one of the most ambitious records ever recorded.
