These days, Geordie Jack fronts the family band, The Jacks , but the music is still the same as it was back in the eighties when Colorado reigned supreme as Britain's top Country band. Many fans from that era still recall Davie Duff, who tragically died when the band were at their peak. Geordie and Dado continued the music in Davie's honour, and have now released a DVD , with the proceeds going to Davie Duff’s Tapes for the Blind, in memory of the ex steel player .
The DVD is titled Looking Back and it sure does that; it’s a one hour pure nostalgia trip. The compilation includes rare footage through video, TV recordings of the bands musical journey over the years; along the way many familiar faces pop up including Ruby Rendell and the late Bobby Coghill.
The DVD is available for £10 including P&P, from Annie Barclay, Aldourie, 2 Drummuie Terrace, Golspie KW10 6SZ
