For those of us in North America this cd is a hard to find item. Many Thanks to Amazon.UK for having this available. Now to the CD, is the original line up? No. Does it rock? Yes. While I have found the earlier Live Dates Vol 1 and 3 to be much better. This set captures the past present and perhaps the future direction of Wishbone Ash. While some of the big hits are missing this is a must have for any rock fan and certainly mandatory for those of us who for the past decades have followed this band and cheered them on at every up and down in their career. Bravo! A job well done.

Well, having seen this band almost from the beginning, 1970, Red Lion Leytonstone E11 and Waltham Forest Tec 1971, where, at the Red Lion Gig it was so packed , there was no room whatsoever to move and even the rear fire escape was blocked with people, what would H&S say today, this band were and are GREAT. The stage back line up at that time of all ORANGE stacks, the sign of a great band, is clear even today in my mind. Again, seeing them on there 25th anniversary at Ashburton and just semi recent at the Falmouth Pavilions, 2009, just a brilliant sound, great dual lead guitar`s and really, far ahead of their time with the twin lead work, great to chat to after the gigs, just a band which to me, has gone from strength to strength and the new DVD at the Shepherds Bush Empire, just brilliant vibes, sound, even without the double CD`s the DVD is worth the money alone. And that Flying V of Andy's complimented with the brilliant white SG of Muddys, just stand out musicianship, Bob Skeet and Joe Crabtree, the whole set is faultless. Stand out track for me, Right or Wrong, brilliant interplay. HIGHLY RECOMENED.

Having played this CD a couple of times now, my one regret, and it is a very big regret indeed, is that I did not fully appreciate Wishbone Ash when I first heard them some 40 years ago, oh what I have been missing for all those years. If only I had gone along to the Greyhound in Croydon when I had the chance and seen them live, things might have been different. Maybe I was too young then or my taste has changed over the years, but since seeing them on the tour earlier this year I very much appreciate them now. I have been waiting for months for this CD to be released so I can re-live the concert, and it is as every bit as good as being there on the night.

Pulsating guitar solos, sublime bass and excellent percussion, I will probably have to buy a new set of speakers for the car, the CD is best played very loud.

I strongly recommend anyone reading this review to buy the CD without delay, you will not be disappointed.

a splendid package celebrating the Ash's 40 years,although only Andy Powell remains from the original line up,he has, as he has done several times over the last 20 years surrounded himself with able musicians,namely Joe Crabtree(drums),Muddy Manninen (guitar) and 12 year veteran Bob Skeat on Bass.

Covering 40 years was always going to be difficult,the set list is just about right(we'll always have personal favs missed off).As well as various classic tracks such as 'Phoenix','The King Will Come','Blowin Free' etc,its pleasing to report some rarely if ever played tracks are present,its fantastic to hear 'Right or Wrong' & 'Rainstorm' and totally unexpected to hear 'Cell of Fame' and 'Engine Overheat'

Sound quality excellent and the crowd seem well up for it,some interesting anecdotes between tracks slow the performance down somewhat but theyre welcome all the same.Sadly the special guest list is a bit diappointing,the latter years well covered and 'Spam' Spence from the '80's,unfortunately none of the originals nor late 70/early 80's members deemed it worthwhile to show up,where they invited who knows,its certainly glossed over in the,frankly,poor booklet,i suspect most of those,certainly Martin Turner/Laurie Wisefield/Trevor Bolder & John Wetton most certainly havent retired.

This package is the 2 cd and dvd set,the dvd is excellent,so you have the choice to watch and listen whever it suits you. Heres to 50 years.

So far the only DVD featuring the current line-up. Thankfully the rather embarrassing "vice of God" intro is omitted and we're straight into the music and its hairs-on-back-of-neck time with Blind Eye, Runaway and Right or Wrong. The newer stuff like Growing Up fits in seamlessly. Liberally sprinkled with Argus-dust to please the faithful and with rarely played gems like Rainstorm with the distinctive sound of the Burns 12-string. The 13min+ version of Way of the World epitomises the chemistry between Andy and Muddy and is pure joy. Mark Birth guests on Everybody Needs a Friend - shame as we don't get to hear his superb electric guitar playing. On to disc 2 with more Argus and then Mervyn Spence reprising his "Raw to the Bone" vocals on Cell of Fame (universally known as Cellophane). For me the highlight of disc 2 is Ben Granfelt's guesting as part of 3-part lead guitar on Almighty Blues and Faith, Hope and Love - spellbinding. The finale of 15min Phoenix with Muddy's amazing interpretation leaves me breathless. The encores are stomping, crowd-pleasing anthems Jailbait and Blowin' Free.

"We want more, we want more, ........."
