The first Pilot album got underway without Ian being present. He was involved with Steve Harley and was considering an offer to join Cockney Rebel.

But the fame came, as Pilot had the first number 1 single - ironically being knocked off the top spot by ... Cockney Rebel.
Just Let Me Be was the B-side to Magic.
