Check out Francis on Big Big Train's latest album-the track The Underfall Yard from the album of the same name-blistering stuff! Cracking solos from Jem Godrey and Dave Gregory too.

I'm currently playing this cd to death, can't get enough of it.

Go on treat yerself or someone else for Christmas! Very Happy

Just spotted your post after I had put one on the Other Bands section about The Underfall Yard. Completely agree with your post. It's an outstanding album with excellent contributions from all the guest musicians.

I've just loaded it - is that Frank at about 13 minutes 30 - if so, he's sounding very Steve Howe these days.

Good stuff - very Billy Sherwood-era Yes, especially the vocals.

On the BBT website I found the following blog from the band:

To answer some of the specific questions Francis Dunnery's main parts are at 4.37 to 6.25, Jem Godfrey's at 6.26 to 7.20 and 19.18 to 20.10, and Dave Gregory's at 13.10 to 14.45 and 21.10 to 22.15. Dave Gregory also plays electric sitar in a number of places in the song

The Dunnery/Godfrey 'duel' sequence is particularly spectacular.

The new vocalist is David Longdon. Seemingly, he worked with Rutherford and Banks for six months prior to Calling All Stations but missed out on the gig when they picked Ray Wilson instead. He's also appeared on a couple of tracks on Martin Orford's swansong album The Old Road. Additionally, Spock's Beard's Nick D'Virgilio is now "permanent guest" on drums.

Hope this helps.

Jammy gits!
That's enough for me to buy the album (if Mr Godfrey's presence hadn't already convinced me anyway!)
