After A 48 Year Wait Rainbow Ffolly Release Their Second Album

Rainbow Ffolly

(Prog) Rainbow Ffolly have just released their second album, entitled "Ffollow Up," which comes a mere 48 years after debut "Sallies Fforth" came out.

"Well, it's really 49 years," laughs bassist/vocalist Roger Newell. "Because we recorded it in 1967, although it was finally put out the next year." The English band actually split up in 69 after just a couple of years together, since which time all those involved - Newell, guitarist/vocalist John Dunsterville, his brother Richard on vocals/guitar and Stewart Osborn on drums/vocals - have been involved with many other projects; Newell and John Dunsterville, for instance were both part of Rick Wakeman's English Rock Ensemble for a time, while Osborn worked with Gerry Anderson on his classic series Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90.

"We have all kept in touch," says Newell. "But over the years never thought about a reunion. Then Ray Bates, who runs Footprints Vinyl, sold his second original copy of Sallies Fforth for about 1000 a couple of years ago. He happened to bump into John shortly afterwards, told him what price he'd gotten, Then asked if he might consider doing a new album! John was taken by surprise, but called me and put the idea forward. I thought it might be fun, and we've gone from there."

The only member of the band missing is Richard Dunsterville, who now lives in America. Read more here.
