    Info:
    Main man behind Denver based Airborne is no one else than Beau Hill, who started his career in the Dallas outfit Heaven And Earth in 1969. Halfway through the 70s he parted company with this band, relocated to Denver and started producing local talent, including a very young Kip Winger. In his spare time he recorded some demo tapes, which caught the ears of his long-time friend Keith Olsen, who persuaded him to assemble a band with his help. The first to join were two old acquaintances of Hill: David Zychek (v, lg) and Larry Stewart (v, g, k, ww). Two others, John Pierce (v, b) and Mike Baird (d), were selected by Olsen from the lucrative L.A. session circuit. They rehearsed for a mere five days and then already found themselves auditioning for record labels. Don Ellis from Columbia Records signed them, but even before Airborne’s eponymous debut album was released, Ellis left Columbia to become president of RCA in the UK. While everyone was waiting for the first Airborne album to be released, John Pierce and Mike Baird stayed in L.A. to continue doing session work, while the rest of the band members went back to Denver to start recording new material for a second album. When the album was released, the band was ready to go on tour, but instead of that Columbia informed them that they didn’t want to pick up the option for a second album. Baird and Pierce returned to session work, whilst Hill moved to New York where he joined Spider (ex-Shanghai), replacing Holly Knight. After that band had split as well, Hill went on to become one of the greatest producers of the 80s.2001. After having re-released the “Airborne” album through Rewind (a division of Song Haus Music) and thanks to the motivating force of David Zychek, Beau Hill searched and found some boxes of old tapes with partially-recorded Airborne songs. With the help of some friends (amongst whom Paul, Nate and Kip Winger) and with the addition of newcomers Rick Allen on bass & vocals and Gary Pavlica on drums, Hill and Zychek recorded what has become Airborne’s second album “The Dig”. Thanks to the marvels of digital recording they were able to restore most of the songs to a large extent. Two of the songs that were uncovered were finished tracks without lyrics or vocals. Having no idea as to the original idea of these songs, Zychek wrote the lyrics and sang “Backseat Driver” and “Say Please”, thus resulting in two new/old songs. Together with 13 others, they are now (also) released by Rewind as “The Dig”. Don’t expect a hi-tech production here, but one that let us revive the end of the 70s. Apart from “Good Boys”, which is the only weak track on offer, “The Dig” is filled with good to very good tracks (listen to “Whenever I’m With You” or “Witch Hunter”) for you to check out. If you’re into old pomp rock, I guess you can’t do without a copy of your own.

    Line-Up:
    Beau Hill: guitar, keyboards, vocals
    David Zychek: guitar, keyboards, vocals
    Rick Allen: bass, vocals
    Gary Pavlica: drums percussion, vocals
