Jon Citizen commented on Paul...Ordinary Angel's blog post Did Hue and Cry play the Royal Albert Hall?
"It is true! They played there in 1991, I think, on the Stars Crash Down tour. I was there and it was actually my first ever gig/concert. It featured Davie Preston on guitar, Greg with long hair and a moment when Pat announced that the album had gone…"

Jon Citizen commented on Darren's blog post Hue and Cry On ITunes (probably miles behind)
"it's odd because most of the tracks sound like they're from the river sessions and the couple at the end from remote are clearly from a different gig (and clearly one where the sound guy wasn't with it...)"

"Hey greg, how did that work then, firing the horn samples in the early live shows? were you literally pressing a pad? Were those gigs on a click?"

"Great idea Greg, do it. Still waiting for those remix files from Open Soul ;-) Seriously if there's anyway you could upload a simple file of the vocals, guitar and brass from Fireball I have a killer idea for you..."

Stuff on Ebay

Drums: Tony McCracken, Bass: James Finegan, Guitar: Nigel Clark, BVs: Davie Preston. On the second tour, a brass section was… Continue
