I just checked out that site. Their featured album was a double CD, Revelation and Ingenuity, with a couple of good reviews beneath at least for the Ingenuity part of it. Both reviews (not really full ones, just a few lines each) remarked that the sound was not the same since Midge left, seeming to be under the impression that much else was the same! This misimpression wasn't helped by the picture on the CD cover (which actaully looked quite good, as far as I could tell), which seemed to feature Billy with what looked like Chris and Warren, all partly masked by what looked like ghostly foliage - a bit (but only a very tiny bit) like Cathedral Oceans. I wonder if there are some folks out there who think that Billy, Warren and Chris are still together? Most peculiar, but understandable when these things are marketed by people with no real interest in anything but the bottom line and using a back-catalogue of available photos.

Incidentally, if I'm wrong about it being Chris and Warren in the picture, then I apologise!

Well spotted Dmitry. I've seen this one before but never considered looking into it any further as I'm happy with the original German releases of both these albums.

There does appear to be Billy, Warren and Chris appearing from the foliage. Perhaps they were looking for the Quiet Man (John)! biglaugh

About a get together I doubt it as most of the band members are leading very successful independent lives. The only 2 that could come out of the foliage together are John and Billy because of the music they are producing at the moment.

It was John's ideas and direction in those days but I'm sure that if they were to collaborate now it'll be John who'll be doing most of the listening...just for a moment! What are you like John! laugh
