John Ford Opts For Optimism

Last year’s "No Talkin’" was a deviation of sorts for John Ford who discarded his usual pop-rock agenda to switch into a full-on instrumental mode. Back on the vocal track, the veteran releases a new album, “A Better Day,” next week that offers, as its title suggests, a look at the bright side of life. Playing most of the instruments, John is backed on a harmony front by THE STORIES’ Ian Lloyd who lent his voice to closer “Sandy” and “After The Rock,” while the only non-original track on offer is “Deep In The Darkest Night” by Ford’s former colleague Dave Cousins that appeared for the first time on STRAWBS’ “The Broken Hearted Bride” album which John didn’t take part in. Quite a nice contrast for the lighter songs.
