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

Format: Audio CD
Wonderful wonderful album. Great guitar playing as always but real craft at play, not guitar gymnastics. Great intro with Silver Shoes ( real West Coast feel), then onwards to the beautiful Perspehone, followed by Lady Jay. This is, next to Argus, their best album, although it has a very diffeent atmosphere about it. Heartily recommended.

Excellent album from Wishbone Ash while not as solid as Argus this album is my second favourite album from the band,the album boasts some great songs with Silver shoes starting of the album in typical Ash style lovely stuff and the classic Lady Jay a somewhat traditional English piece and excellent it is as well.New guitarist Laurie Wisefield does a sterling job taking over from Ted Turner who decided to leave the band.this album is available as a digital remaster from Japan if you want better sound quality and if you can find it.I highly recommend this album and am sure it will be a worthy addition for your collection.
Please check out my other reviews you might find something of interest.Cheers.

One of the greatest albums EVer ! 27 Dec 2004
By Patrick Gaudin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you want to hear an album that was recorded in a time when expert production, expert engineering, expert musicianship and superb songcrafting existed, this one will surely serve as a prime example.

It's so hilarious to hear pompous music critics continually squawk the mantra that "the mid-seventies were bloated and stale and therefore punk was ushered in" or words to that effect. Meanwhile albums such as this continually serve to prove those idiots wrong. I admit bands like Yes got a little over the top during this era, but "There's The Rub" is a must-have for anyone who appreciates masterpieces that will stand the test of time, regardless of what the critics think is cool this week. Every note on this album means something. Not one note is stale or cliche'. The tones are heavenly, yet still rocks in all the right ways. The opening song "Silver Shoes" sounds like no other song ever written, and is delivered with incredible confidence and flair, which sets the tone for the rest of the album that sounds like nothing that's ever been produced before, nor since.

I would love to hear from any of you who buy this CD on my word and agree that it's a masterpiece upon hearing.

This album represents a radical change of Ash style 25 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Following "Wishbone Four", "There's the Rub" appeared with a change in the band's lineup. Ted Turner left the band to go to Peru, and Laurie Wisefield joined. The sound also change and sweet distorted guitars became the distinctive mark in this CD. Songs as beatiful as "Persiphone" and as intricate as "F.U.B.B" transport you through the space of twin guitars and spectacular bass lines. Don't miss it!

Laurie Wisefield's debut. 9 Aug 2001
By RKL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
'There's the rub' introduces fans to the amazing talent of new guitarist Laurie Wisefield. The man can cook as this disc shows. Every track is great. There is some very serious guitarwork here-amazing solos- Silver Shoes, Persephone, Lady Jay and of course F-U-B-B.'Lady Jay' will go down in history as one of the best ballads ever recorded, check out the solo at the end of the track, brilliant as it segues into the closing track. The band got the formula right with this one. This cd begs for a proper remastering. A must-have for fans.

INCOMPARABLE GUITAR WORK 25 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For over 20 years, every time I've played this album for non-Ash fans, they've completely flipped. "Who is that?!" You won't find better guitar work anywhere and the sound is as fresh as if it were recorded yesterday. You'd have to be dead not to find this album utterly superb.

There's No Rub! 11 Oct 2005
By Pachanga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the first Wishbone album to feature Laurie Wisefield from the band Home on guitar replacing Ted Turner. This is also the first line up change from the classic period that gave us the Argus years. There's the Rub is a combination of the classic Wishbone sound and their self perceived "Live Rock Blues Band" approach that they tried on Wishbone 4. It is a bit of a hybrid to straddle both sounds and is far more successful in this than Wishbone 4. Some of the classic sounding tunes include Persephone for example and the rockers are Hometown, Silver Shoes. Excellent production and a very clean drum sound. Here Steve Upton showcases his new "in the pocket" style for the first time. It is clean and strong (killer snare drume sound!) but I still prefer his Keith Moon style that he used on the earlier albums. Wisefield adds a smooth voice and very tasty guitar to accompany Andy Powell. This is one of their best post Argus albums and their inspiration is obvious. Bone On!
