    I first saw you perform in concert way back in Ottawa when you opened for Chris De Burgh. You impressed and I bought the Comedy CD the next day and have purchased all your releases since (and it wasn’t easy finding them in Canada back in the pre-Internet days). I re-purchased your CDs (as many as I could find) when an unkind stranger robbed my place on an Xmas Day and had the discerning taste to take all your CDs along with many others. I now live in Australia and want to know if you have any plans to perform here?

    Hi Colin
    So gutted that the Aberdeen concert on the 21st April has been cancelled. I had asked my sister to come along as well to here you and Calum playing. Been playing the cd all the time and luv it to bits.
    Thank you for my t-shirt and signed CD.
    Hopefully you may in the near future come back up north to the Highlands- as you will always be warmly welcome here.
    Hope the rest of the concerts go down well. I had planned the 21st as my day off – so disappointed it’s been called off.
    Take care.
    Graham Laing – from Inverness – a true fan.

    I was fortunate to attend last nights concert in the Ropery Hall Barton.
    It was wonderful.

    Colin and Callum were on sparkling form and the audience were wonderful who listened in rapt silence to the stunning music.

    This repect was brilliant to all who listened because we had absolutely no distractions when we shared the concert.

    Indeed it was only Colin who had a cough.
    I just wish I could have had a copy of the concert so that I can revisit the brilliance.

    Afterwards Colin was kind enough to sign all my Cds and LPs and chat.

    A confession?
    Back in the day I would put Black LPs on as ‘I entertained’ ladies in my house in my Bachelor Days.

    I was able to thank Colin personally for all his unknown help in setting the mood and ambience.

    I also want Wonderful Life to be played at my Funeral.

    Great to see the set at Bishops Cleeve – a fine venue too. I’m an original disciple but my wife became an instant fan and bought wonderful life cd but not signed as there was such a throng of people wanting to thank Colin.More people need to know just what a talent Colin is, ably supported by Calum.The rapport was a joy. See you next time and thanks again for great night.

    Tienen planes de venir a Sudamérica en específico a Chile acá tienes muchos seguidores podrías hacer una presentación saludos desde el.fin del mundo “wonderful life “

      Entiendo que para Black, es caro venir a Sudamérica… por ello y pensando el look ochentero del Viña 2016, Yo, a ChileVisión (alcaldesa y organizadores del Festival de Viña del Mar), les mandé un frase y petición:

      “Vive la vida manarillosa en Viña 2016”

      La idea es que nos escuchen y consideren a Black como miembro del jurado o como artista invitado… Hay que hacer fuerzas, reunir gente, etc.

    Any plans for a tour Down Under ? … Your “It’s a Wonderful, Wonderful Life” track is frequently played at clubs in Sydney, Australia (no doubt at other venues too) …


  1. Black- Wonderful life(1987) | Reminded and Rewinded - 12 November 2015

    […] Juist een van die nummers, ‘Sweetest smile’, trekt nou net de aandacht van het grote A&M. Inmiddels solo-act Black gooit daarna ‘Wonderful life’ nog eens in de herkansing en het groeit uit tot een van de successen in 1987. En zo geldt voor Black hier een van de regels voor een wonderful life: In het leven komt uit ellende en liefde of combinatie vaak het grootste creatieve succes. Heel vaak maar één keer, en zo kon Black vanaf 1988 ook weer gewoon over straat.  Hij woont hedendaags in Ierland, schildert, dicht,heeft nog meerdere albums, EP’s uitgebracht en hij doet kleine tours.
