Ray Jackson out of retirement?So, I was reading R2 magazine and saw an advert for a new Magna Carta album. Wondering if Doug Morter plays on this, I found MC's website. Indeed, Doug is on it, and it also mentioned that he's recorded an album with Alan Thompson.
So, I checked Doug's website. There's news of gigs promoting the album with Alan and gigs with Hunter Muskett, but the big surprise is that he and Jerry plan to gig with Ray again later this year, probably September. No news of where or when, so keep an eye on Doug's site. It doesn't say if this will be under the Acoustic Gathering banner, but I can't think of any reason why it shouldn't. This is excellent news, as I thought they really hit the mark.
Could this be old news from a neglected website? No, I don't think so. The website for label Talkingelephants confirms that the Doug/Alan album is up for release in June 2015, and the up and coming HunterM/Doug&Jerry gigs are definitely for this year.
