Heron came together again in 1996 to record two new albums and to make a video documentary.
The idea was to re-record songs from the first two albums – Heron and Twice as Nice – plus a few that were never released at the time. The resulting compilation would be River of Fortune.
At the same time it was decided to put together some of the newer songs for a second album Black Dog.
Nostalgia prompted a return to the village of Black Dog in Devon but with a slightly new line-up. GT Moore was working with his reggae band so Gerry Power joined the band.
32 songs were recorded at that 1996 Black Dog sessions which produced the two albums, plus the documentary In a Field of Their Own and also a recording of the concert performed to the local villagers from Black Dog (Black Dog – In Concert).
There is a wealth of video footage which has never been edited and, inevitably, out-take versions of a number of songs. So watch this space…
