    You do realise the difference between facts and opinions don't you?

    I've been a big fan of TFF from day one.
    Will always remember watching the Knebworth concert with the rain chucking it down thinking how's nobody getting electrocuted .
    Roland had one of the greatest voices ever.

    A few months ago, there was a live TFF set on the bbc red button.
    They had a dedicated singer, (not the usual backing singer) off to one side to hit the notes Roland can no longer manage.
    The worst part for me was the complete lack of chemistry & friendship between Roland & Kirk. Still had some great songs though.

    Why not?

    Would also help at the end of every single remain “this-will-happen-post-brexit” doom n gloom naysayer. Opinions masquerading as facts about the future is after all, very much the PFM vernacular amongst more than few contributors here. Eh Tony?

    IMHO. Of course

    TFF were aways time very much a studio crafted band. Their live appeal and proficiency is neither here nor there to me.
    The studio recordings exist and will endure for me.

    My early 20s daughters both love “change” and say thT stuff is ‘in’. Sorry, what they really say is “that it’s, like, in. Totes’.

    Out of interest.In the pantheon of "Top Mixing Engineers reference tracks"....... "Woman In Chains" is one of the most common picks.

    Have really liked their first 3 albums over the years, some amazing instrumental pieces.

    Have to say I was very underwhelmed when I watched this show live a while back.
    For those that missed it.
