    Tapestry of Delights:
    Pilot came together in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1973. Paton and Lyall had previously played in teenybop outfit The Bay City Rollers. They recorded a series of demos in London eventually getting signed up by EMI. A fourth Scotsman, Ian Bairnson, a session guitarist who came from the Shetland Isles, was added to the line-up at this stage.
    They played a lightweight but well-crafted form of pop. Twenty years on they are remembered for good tunes like Magic and January, the latter was a No 1 here. In the States their biggest hit was Magic, which got to No 5. After a couple more minor hits - Call Me Round and Just A Smile (the latter was a reissue of their first 45) - their sales soon plummeted and they went their separate ways. A final album, Two's A Crowd (Arista SPARTY 1014) was released in 1977 along with three further 45s which made little impression. Bairnson and Paton both went into session work, Tosh joined 10cc and Lyall recorded a solo album Solo Casting. Lyall later joiner Dollar but died in late 1989 of an A.I.D.S.-related illness.
    More recently Ian and David have re-recorded their 1977 album Two's A Crowd. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Hans-Juergen Merkel)
