Does anyone know if next year's tour is a continuation of the currrent "progressives" tour, or is it gonna be something completely different?

Due to personal issues i couldn't make the Bilston show on Saturday, even though i had tickets and have been looking forward to it for months!

I'm now wondering whether to wait and catch him again in February (i.e. The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham) or drive up to Nottingham this Thursday?

I think the Feb tour is Gulley Flats Boys.

Just Frank and Tom Brislin.

Stewart.

Another step backwards, is this what FD means by progressive?
I took some friends to the Bush last night, they didn't enjoy being bored at all and left asking me why I didn't tell them FD was a folk singer!

I think the Gulley Flats Tour is the next house concert tour rather than 'full' tour.

I was told he Is doing 'lgdwh' on the 2010 tour. And that was from reliable source. So not getting too excited about hearing any new songs... Sad

Right, I'm gonna stick this in print and be damned with the consequences. With the help of my mate Jim Beam.

I love the two house concerts I've been to, but the GFB tour prospect leaves me cold. Why?

It all started with 'Man'. Not a terrible album but many of the tracks on it were over-long - not bad - but over-long. (This tendancy had first raised its head on the SELF-Produced LGDWH, in my opinion, his last PROPER album.) I suppose the lack of proper drums foretold the next stage.

More than anything, it heralded Frank's move to a much lighter, more acoustic, way of making music. That's his right, no complaint there. But the reviews I read of GFB material and production (especially the vocals), made me glad I didn't buy it. And to this day, I still haven't heard it. But this album, and the advent of house concerts, brought on the 'new' fan base.

In a way 'Man', and particularly GFB, paved the way for the latest CD - it included covers and not totally original material.

I know Frank's into many different things these days - but two albums in 10 years is pretty poor, especially to the standard we've received. The latest CD, in a way, came as no surprise when you consider his 2003 comments about the way IB material should be 'performed' if a reunion took place.

Now here's the killer. The man is a great guitarist and his live vocals seem to get better with age. (I remember 'Jackal' on the WTTWC tour - had me in a puddle). But he's serving us up with sub-standard product these days - those of us who go back to the IB days know this.

However, when I get over the disappointment, I'm still likely to go see him again.

Cliff, I am with you partly with regards album output, however he has co-written/produced albums for Dorie Jackson, Chris Difford, John & Wayne x2, Stephen Harris, James Sonefeld and John Gilmour Smith in that time.

As I said, there's more going on in his life now. As you rightly point out, he's produced a good few albums for others and has Aquarian Nation to look after. But, I still say his own output is sub-standard.
