A good point Richard that so many of the songs on the recent tour were enhanced by the presence of female backing vocals. Off the top of my head, Panorama with the soulful sound, ditto that for All in a Life's Work and the 'repeat verse' on Back to the Farm where the MonaLisa's input made the song sound even more sinister than it already is!! For Timeless Flight tracks I'm thinking Don't Go Don't Cry and Black or White as being tailormade for strong female vocals and from the Love's a Prima Donna album Is it True What They Say certainly has huge possibilities. I really enjoyed the two songs that they performed live this time and if they join the tour next year will await some more new material from them. Without wanting to sound un-PC they just gave us old codgers something pleasant and lovely to look at on top of the superb musicianship which was clear for all to see and hear.

Your voices lent Sebastian a new and ethereal quality, bringing new life to a truly great song. Lisa's guitar rocked and Mona's percussion and harmonica were a delight, especially on Best Years, when the audience broke into instant applause as the reeds rang out. Glorious!

We should be saying thank you to you two, Your vocals and guitar work really brought something special to the band. I hope we see you both again in the future performing with Steve either on an acoustic tour or with the full band.
