Look out California Ooh-Ooh, I gotta warn you Here comes Canada
So maybe it wasn't the smartest commercial move --trying to pit The Golden State against The Great White North, but the Scottish trio Pilot ( best know for their Top 5 hit "Magic") just couldn't help themselves.
They named their third album, Morin Heights, after the tourist town in Quebec where they recorded with Roy Thomas Baker.With generous measures of Beatlesque melodies and Queen-like harmonies, Morin Heights has been called Pilot's "Abbey Road".
Lyrically though, they've always been lightweights.Witness:
Canada, you proved your worth You got snow peaked mountains tumbling down You had them from birth
Though I prefer British Columbia with its majestic mountains and sunny islands, the list of rock bands who've recorded in Morin Heights is impressive: Rush ( naturally), The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Police, Cat Stevens and The Bee Gees, among others.
