Biography

WISHBONE ASH BIOGRAPHY! !
The classic rock bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s enjoy a unique place in popular musical history. The Beatles had gone their separate ways, Britain had already experienced the Blues Boom, and Psychedelia had made its impact. The creative possibilities were infinite.

Wishbone Ash embarked on the nascent Progressive Rock scene in 1969, taking ... Read more in Amazon's Wishbone Ash Store

Used to listen to this album on vinyl when it came out in the 70's and had always wondered whether it would stand the test of time.
Bought it in the aftermath of hearing a covers band playing a Wishbone track recently and it still sounds a fine collection of tracks after all these years.
The live track is particularly good to hear again.
Recommended.

Absolutely brillaint again from Wishbone Ash. Providing relaxing music with "The Pilgrim" and heart pumping stuff with Jailbait and Vas Dis, Some of Wishbone Ash's best pieces of music! An absolute must for all Wishbone Ash fans as the perfect all rounder CD.

I can't say I'm a rabid Ash follower - I've owned 'Argus' for decades, also own 'Live Dates' and 'There's the Rub' (both of which I like) and once saw the two legendary guitarists live playing tracks from their most celebrated album on the 'Night of the Guitars' tour in the 80s, alongside such six-string luminaries as Robbie Krieger (The Doors) and Steve Hunter (Alice Cooper/Lou Reed).

This, of course, was the second Ash album and for me, it's the work of a band still finding their feet. The infamous yodelling will not appeal to everyone - it certainly didn't to me - and the production isn't as sleek as on 'Argus' and the later, more West-Coast oriented material. I have to say I was very disappointed with the album - and I am a great lover of 1970s rock music of all stripes.

If you're unfamiliar with Wishbone Ash, I'd say tread carefully and try and listen to a friends' copy before buying - and if you are totally unfamiliar with the band, buy 'Argus' now, as it is one of the great 70s albums that belongs in every collection alongside 'Dark Side of the Moon', the untitled Led Zeppelin album, 'Ziggy Stardust', 'For Your Pleasure' and so on.

Just a note about the previous reviewer: this is Wishbone Ash's second album, not their first. More pertinently, I agree that it isn't one of their best early albums. All of their other albums prior to the dull 'Locked In' are better. Yet the standard of those albums is so high that this is still a worthy effort. 'Vas Dis' is good once you get past the unnecessary scat vocals; 'The Pilgrim' and 'Jailbait' are classics, displaying both the rock and gentle sides of the band at their best; 'Valediction' suffers only from a somewhat clumsily recorded harmony vocal arrangement; and the two short tracks are delightful, yet simple. My one major gripe is the ten minute live track, 'Where Were You Tomorrow'. Like many live recordings, it was probably great if you were there, but here it is gentle, routine boogie, mere filler. 'Pilgrimage' is worth a punt if you find you like Wishbone Ash albums in general, but I'd leave it well down your list of priorities.

I liked this album, it was though a little of a sampler? There was some very melodic guitar playing and some raw rock and the vocals seemed to cover all areas. I think that this album was eclipsed by Argus Argusbut it has stood the test of time. Wishbone Ash were what I referred to as 'University Bands' playing on the student union circuit. Well worth a listen.

I originally bought this album on vinyl during my schooldays and the music is just as enjoyable now. It's nice to revive memories from when I was listening to it 1st time around.

'Pilgrimage' (1971) is Wishbone Ash's 2nd foray into the studio and, once again, covers the progressive blues territory explored on the group's highly promising debut L.P. The highlights include the much-loved 'The Pilgrim', which features some gorgeous 'Yes-style' harmonies, and the crisp blues of 'Jail Bait'. Although this is probably the least impressive of the first 3 albums, it provides an important bridge between 'Wishbone Ash (1970) and the classic 'Argus' (1972) and is well worth adding to your collection.

40 years old and still superb. Worth the wait for a very different late sixties alternative rock. Better than argus which came after.
