On Air is the second solo release by Alan Parsons after the split of The Alan Parsons Project, originally released in 1996. Although On Air might be the most underrated Alan Parsons albums, many consider this as one of his best.

One of the creative forces was APP long-time guitarist Ian Bairnson. The concept of the album revolves around the history of airborne exploration. The theme of "Too Close to the Sun" is escaping the labyrinth of the Minotaur. "Brother Up In Heaven" is an emotionally driven song, about the unfortunate death of Ian Bairnson's cousin. "One Day To Fly" is a song about Leonardo da Vinci's search to design a flying machine.

A who's-who of lead vocalists are featured on this album; Christopher Cross, Eric Stewart, Neil Lockwood, Steve Overland and Graham Dye. The amazing artwork was re-created for the Music On Vinyl edition by none other than Peter Curzon of Storm Studios.

This is the very first vinyl issue of On Air, which Music On Vinyl is celebrating with a limited pressing of 1,000 numbered copies on transparent blue-ish 180-gram vinyl!
