Many Wishbone Ash fans will feel they've had to wait the guts of 30 years for a half-decent CD remaster of their favourite British band's huge back-catalogue. Well at last - it's here - and "...MCA Travelogue" is a humdinger, it really is.

"Sometime World" takes its name from the 2nd track on Side 1 of their most beloved album "Argus" and features newly remastered songs from 12 LPs - 26 tracks across two fully-featured CDs. Proceedings open with their rare 1970 debut album "Wishbone Ash" and carry on right through to 1981's "Number The Brave" - the only LP exclusion being any tracks from 1980's "Live Dates Volume 2".

Released Monday 31 May 2010 on Island/Universal 5326131, "Sometime World - An MCA Travelogue" breaks down as follows (full album versions used)...

Disc 1 (79:55 minutes):
1. Blind Eye
2. Error Of My Ways
3. Phoenix
4. Vas Dis
5. The Pilgrim
6. Jail Bait
7. Sometime World
8. Blowin' Free
9. Warrior
10. Throw Down The Sword
11. Everybody Needs A Friend
12. The King Will Come [Live]

1 to 3 from "Wishbone Ash", December 1970 UK LP on MCA Records MKPS 2014
4 to 6 from "Pilgrimage", September 1971 UK LP on MCA Records MDKS 8004

This is an excellent 2 cd set from Wishbone Ash who appear to be one of Britains best kept secrets,destined like Hawkwind/Uriah Heep to play second fiddle to the likes of Zep/Sabbath & Purple,this is a wonderful place to start.

Disc 1 covers the Ted Turner era from the debut thru to live dates(1970-73) and shows the early folkier,progressive leanings,highlights being the epics 'Phoenix ' and 'Pilgrim', how many southern bands did those two influence i wonder,early classics include 'Error of my Ways' and 'jailbait' while their best known album Argus gets 4 tracks including the superb title track of this compilation and the fantastic 'Blowin Free',Live dates is represented with another Argus fav 'The King Will Come'.All in all its as good a selection of early Ash as you'll get,personally i think Wishbone 4 has been under represented,i would have swopped 'vas dis' and 'blind eye' for the likes of R n R Widow/Sorrell/Ballad of the Beacon,still cant have everything,everyone will have their own personal favourites.

Disc 2 covers the Laurie Wisefield era (1974-81) and again each album is represented from 74's There's The Rub thru 81's No The Brave( with the exception inexplicably of Live Dates 2).This era ssaw the band become more aor/fm at times but despite what some people will tell you they still rocked and disc 2 can be arguably described as even better than disc 1.

Highlights are many the simply spine chilling solos on the likes of 'Persephone,Lorelie,Living Proof etc,the hit single that never was'Goodbye Baby...,the jaw dropping musicianship on epics like 'FUBB','Way of the World' and the magnificent 'Lifeline' all showing that the band could rock like the best of them.

I've always really liked Wishbone Ash but listening to this years later I'm struck by just how very classy they really were. This was intelligent, melodic, harmonic, thinking person's rock music, with a deep and significant English feel to the songs and lyrics and marvellous musicianship all round. There is some stinging guitar playing, full of invention and ideas and you can really hear Martin Turner's superb bass-work and Steve Upton's great drumming on these remasters. On disc one the writing and playing is nothing less than inspired, and lifts them higher than all but the very best of their era. This is great music in any genre and transcends the boundaries that we think of as rock. If disc two doesn't quite match the compositional originality and quality of disc one then the playing certainly does and not many bands can boast this sort of level of ability. You can also only imagine how many other bands that must have copied their style, and their influence on European rock in its most fertile and interesting years. Therefore it is one of rock history's great injustices that this band have been largely overlooked since their early seventies heyday, while lesser bands who never scaled these heights of creativity are accorded more respect and continued success for a thinner volume of work. I can think of a few huge name bands who never made music quite this good. Hopefully this wonderful compilation may go some way to remind us just what remarkable quality they were - and to some extent still are - and perhaps one day they'll be recognised for their magnificent contribution to English rock music.
