Guitar driven rock at its sizzling best. From the tortured opening chords of Mother of Pearl, to the closing acoustic Candle Light, this album has it all. It's Wishbone Ash's finest moment.
Clear, lucid production gives the album a contemporary feel that is not a million miles from bits of the Chilis.
It's been a fixture in my all time top ten since I first heard it over 20 years ago.
Buy it.

This contains some of my favorite Wishbone Ash tracks (most notably Lorelei and Mother of Pearl). Those of you who are familiar with the band Home will notice the influence of Laurie Wisefield (who left Home to join Wishbone Ash).

New England has been re-issued on two double CDs - combined with Front Page News in one case, and with Locked In on another. Whilst neither Locked In or Front Page News is anywhere near as good as New England, you may find it a lot cheaper to buy one of these than New England on it's own.

I saw Wishbone Ash live in Sheffield City Hall on their 'New England' tour in 1976 - love this album, especially 'Lorelei'. The album has a great range of styles and is certainly one of Wishbone Ash's finest, equal to 'Argus'.

Certainly one of the bands top albums and along with their debut 1970 album Pilgrimage and Argus the album New England for me was a much welcoming release from the guys back in 1976.

The album kicks off with the blistering rocking pace of "Mother Of Pearl" and then settles down to one of the finest tracks of the album with "(In All Of My Dreams) You Rescue Me" a lush track with purely lush interplaying between Powell and Wisefield. Lovely bass lines too from Turner and the bass is super throughout this album from him. "Runaway" turn up the pace very well and is another fine rocking track.

"Lorelie" is another class track on the album and "Outward Bound" sees the familiar twin guitars working so well together and this is such a trade mark of this band and is quite a stunning instrumental track. The albums then settles down to a more chilled out pace with tracks like "When You Know Love" and "Lonely Island" and end off with a lovely little instrumental ditty with "Candlelight".

Certainly one of the bands stronger albums out of the many they have done over the years and for me an album I still play and get great pleasure out even now where into 2014, and I did buy this on it's release back in 76.

So it's certainly served as excellent value for money for my ears. To be honest I do not think the band could ever match what they did on their first 3 albums, and for me they was in a different field and done at a much higher level. But the album New England is certainly a cracking album and an excellent choice for those who have only recently got into the band, or if your looking out for some well cool chilled out rock.
