FIRE - UPDATE
=============

News just in that the proposed reunion of Fire later in the year
(dates/venue to be advised) will not only feature the original line-up
(Dave Lambert, drummer Bob Voice and bassist Dick Dufall) but also the
talents of all those who played on the original Magic Shoemaker album:

Dave Cousins will play banjo
Paul Brett will play guitars
and producer Ray Horrocks will provide the narration between songs
originally voiced by Dave Lambert.

I'm lobbying for a storming encore - Father's Name Is Dad !!
