Fear Of Flying

Album: Where to Now (1979)
  • Written by the lady herself, backed by "Hula Valley" and produced by Bruce Welch and Alan Tarney for Island Records, "Fear Of Flying" was Charlie's Dore's debut single. And it didn't fly!

    She learned her lesson, or maybe her record buying public did, and her next release literally flew: "Pilot Of The Airwaves". >>
