What's exciting  going on over here with The Faback Band? the biggest thing  we're looking forward playing  in Paris and Germany this time out. around November   so  look out all you Funkbacker we on  our way.( if nothing happens) 


Earlier this year when we release our Fatback live from Tokyo CD we make a few mistakes that had to be corrected, I would like to apologize  publicly to my Japanese  associate in Tokyo for the mistakes that was made on the cover of Fatback live in Tokyo 2006 Cd,  they have been corrected  I'm sorry that it took so long to correct the mistakes,  although I'm responsible  but it was out of my control,  we hope that the corrections are satisfactory with you,  we changed the cover  front and back  and removed everything that was not authorized  we did not intend to dishonor your company of your staff in any way.  To the Staff and all parties involved,  please accept our apologizes and honest in good faith.

 The Correcting we made was a new cover to  make sure we  didn't associate  anyone that  was not with the Fatback Production inc team and Ace Records what you see is old picture of the band without our new lead singer, Isabella Gordon she joined the band one month before  we left for Japan I would like  to apologize to all you Isabella fans for her not being on the new cover and you Bob James fans this was a rush rush thing we had to do. Maybe you can still findsome of the old coversaround somewhere.
