2 stars "Just for collectors, enthusiast."

This BO's last record (1996) contains new versions a couple of their old tracks and some new ones. Music style is a bit difficult to describe, it varies between R&B, AOR, prog.

In my opionion this is quite nice record, this complete my BO collection.(and this was cheap purchase). Booklet is as poor as possible.

I found some interesting "The final curtain" information from internet (how reliable these are... I don't know).

"" -Final Curtain contains last available tracks featuring three of the members of the band from the earlier (read "great") years: Linnie Patterson (voc), Gordon Sellar (bass, voc), Alan Park (keys). Some of the tracks were recorded in 1980 and the remainder in the late 80's when Linnie untimely died and Gordon took over on vocals.

"" -A final album of tracks recorded between 1980 and 1991, called "The Final Curtain", featuring Sellar, Patterson (who has since passed on) and Park, together with ex-Manfred Mann's Earthband bassist Colin Pattenden, keyboard player Lyndsay Bridgewater, vocalist Gordon Neville (ex-Alan Bown & Dragonfly), and drummer John Hollywood, was released in 1996.
