And The Curtain Calls (CD)
About For Absent Friends (founded in 1997) the legendary Dutch music paper Oor wrote in its popular annual Oor's Pop-encyclopedie (1977-2014): "Probably Holland's best progressive rock band of the nineties, with its well composed, cleverly produced and, above all, original music. After the mini-album Illusions (1990) and the underestimated record Both Worlds (1991) For Absent Friends finally breaks through with the third album Running In Circles (1994). Well, personally I considered For Absent Friends as one of the few interesting Neo-Prog bands on the SI Music label. I have seen the band several times on stage, in my opinion they sound more powerful and dynamic as a live band (FAF was support-act for Asia, Saga, Marillion and Dutch pride Kayak). In 2017 FAF existed 30 years but there was no reason to celebrate, because in 2016 the co-founder and longtime bass player of the band René Bacchus had passed away, after a long illness. This live CD entitled And The Curtain Calls was his last gig with the band (2009), in the'Dutch progrock temple' De Boerderij, and now released, "dedicated to the loving memory of René Bacchus" (written on the back cover).
