Returning to the stage together after around 25 years Southern Sons put on a
fantastic show at The Gov. I hadnt seen them for exactly 27 years -
yes to the day 6 Dec 92! And what a show - long overdue and hope the
tour is not a one off those songs deserve to be played live more often.
More Than Enough led into the hit Always and Ever followed by Something More
and Which Way. Acoustic versions of Hold Me In Your Arms and Let it Go
(the latter from their third album) followed then it was back to the full
band with Hold onto the Memory, Sometimes, Can't Breathe, Waiting for that
Train, Shelter, World is Mine and then their debut hit Heart in Danger.
The encore was cut short to only an impressive drum solo & another brilliant
song in Lead Me To Water. All the originals - Jack Jones (aka Irwin
Thomas), Peter 'Reggie' Bowman, Geoff Cain and Virgil Donati returned for
the tour with only Phil Buckle choosing not to take part. Hopefully
they return for a longer playlist in the future (they had to drop Silent
Witness & You Were There from the show due to the effects of exposure of the
Sydney bushfire smoke to Jack Jones' voice).
For the fans out who didnt get a chance to pick up the Unplugged Jack Jones
CD at the shows it can be purchased along with a Christmas album from
