On Air is the second solo studio album by English rock musician Alan Parsons. The album's chief creative force was the Alan Parsons Project's long-time guitarist, Ian Bairnson. Its concept revolves around the history of airborne exploration. Musically, this album is somewhat different from Try Anything Once and the Alan Parsons Project albums, opting for more of a soft rock sound and a more stable band line-up rather than the funky rhythms, symphonic flares, or rotating vocalists of the past.

On air" was the second album by Alan Parsons (without the "project"). It is a somewhat underrated concept album on the theme of flight and the history of aviation, from the hot air balloons on the cover picture through to space travel. The music is generally of a softer nature and pace, with a number of mid-tempo ballads. On Air is Alan Parsons' second solo album after the demise of the Alan Parsons Project when Parsons and Eric Woolfson went their separate ways. Unlike his first solo album, Try Anything Once, Parsons seems to rehash old ideas and his formulaic approach seems a bit too tiresome now on his 13th studio album (APP+Freudiana+solo).

On Air was the second solo release by Alan Parsons following the split of The Alan Parsons Project, Photographer Storm Thorgerson recalls, "Alan Parsons, of The Alan Parsons Project and The Dark Side of the Moon engineering fame was inclined to select ideas around which to weave an album, in the past subjects included surveillance, Gaudi, pyramids, Asimov robots, not to mention Edgar

Alan Parsons was born into a family with an impressive history in entertainment. His great- grandfather was the celebrated actor/manager Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree. The partnership continued for On Air in 1996 and The Time Machine in 1999. During this time the first incarnation of Alan Parsons Live Project toured to sell out audiences throughout the globe. Following Alan’s relocation to California in 1999 with his American girlfriend, Lisa, and a divorce from Smokey, his first wife, a brand-new Live Project band was formed in 2003. That same year Lisa and Alan were married. The album A Valid Path, Alan’s foray into electronica was released in 2004 and featured Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, The Crystal Method, Shpongle, Uberzone, . Olsson and Alan’s son, Jeremy.

Alan Parsons (born 20 December 1948) is an English audio engineer, songwriter, musician, and record producer.

Sky Blue in color, 180 grams vinyl and the sound is real nice too. Yes, vinyl does sound better. I was fortunate enough to see the " On Air" Tour. Highly recommend this album. This product is "TOP NOTCH", the cover and inserts are made of thick, glossy paper. The artwork is truly outstanding, better then the CD version.
