I agree with Mick that Ray had the role of front man. The gigs I went to were mostly Lindisfarne fans in the crowd and their songs were most eagerly anticipated and applauded. That takes nothing away from the songs of Doug who has some crackers in his repertoire or the mainly instrumentals by Jerry. The Fairport website at the time urged Fairporters to check out Jerry's new band.
I further agree with Mick that some of the venues were booked over-optimistically. The Orchard in Dartford had a sparse crowd which would probably have filled the nearby Mick Jagger Centre. When we saw them at Martletts Hall in Burgess Hill, the gig was sold out with a capacity of around 200. The band were clearly more comfortable in front of a packed house.
I did enjoy their performances and it was great to see Ray Jackson back on stage.

I've just seen a message elsewhere to say that Jerry Donahue has suffered a stroke. I wish him a full and speedy recovery.

Latest news on Jerry Donahue is that, after initially seeming to be on the road to recovery, he's now taken a turn for the worse. Hope he gets through this.
