40 Year Itch : Here Comes Canada

Pilot : Canada

In August of 1976, the Scottish pop band Pilot released the fan favorite Morin Heights, produced by Roy Thomas Baker, and named for the Quebec locale where the album was recorded. Band members reportedly skied in the morning and recorded at night. David Paton must have loved his time there because he penned "Canada", a single featuring the chorus "A look out California/ Ooo-ooo, I gotta warn ya/ Here comes Canada ".

Thus would be Pilot's last album as a trio. Drummer Stuart Tosh bailed to join the new 10cc line-up in time for their world tour . Tosh would appear on the album Live And Let Live and would sing lead vocals on Bloody Tourists's "Reds in My Bed"
