The Aerovons were an American rock band from St Louis, Missouri formed in 1966. They were formed in 1966 in St Louis, Missouri by Tom Hartman. In spite of an offer to record in Los Angeles, the group held out hope that they could record in London, the recording home of their heroes, The Beatles. In 1968 they traveled to London twice, receiving offers from both EMI and Decca.
The dozen songs that would have been on the Aerovons' album had it come out (though a couple of the songs did come out on a 1969 single) form the core of this release, Resurrection,the . The Aerovons' unusual story - a band from the American Midwest recording in Abbey Road in 1969, led and produced by their 17-year-old singer-songwriter - might be the main reason there was interest in excavating these sessions, but this CD is not a mere curio.

The Aerovons, unlike virtually every other such band, did so. Personnel instability intervened, however, and the group only got to issue a couple of rare singles before splitting up. They did record an entire album of promising material heavily influenced by the late-'60s Beatles, which finally saw release on CD in 2003. Over the next few months the group cut about an album's worth of material at Abbey Road. Unsurprisingly considering the surroundings, and considering that the Beatles were the group's heroes anyway, the material sounded much like the Beatles did circa 1967-1969, though on the lighter side of what the Beatles themselves came up with. More surprisingly, the album was produced by Hartman himself, who also wrote most of the songs laid down in the studio.
