From the Album of the Same Name is the 1974 debut album by Pilot, containing the international hit "Magic". The album was initially released in 1974 by EMI, and later re-released on CD by EMI Japan in 1990 and by C-Five (Chapter Five) Records, in 1991.[2]

Ian Bairnson plays guitar on this album but, at the time, was not a group member. He joined the group, officially, after it had been recorded. Richard Hewson made the orchestral arrangements, although normally it would be Alan Parsons with Andrew Powell.
