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

Surely one of the most amazing debut albums of all time, this album has some of the most incredible twin guitar playing you are ever likely to hear (except possibly on Argus!). It rocks, but despite containing only 6 tracks the album is always melodic and tuneful, never allowing the solos to detract from the music.

Absolutely masterful album, beautiful guitar work, every song is simple a classic. The band Wishbone Ash is often overlooked when discussing rock's classic albums, but you will scarcely hear anything better than the material on this CD (Possibly the only exception being Argus!). I've seen the band live twice now and the atmosphere was out of this world as they played several tracks from this album and Argus, and a few later ones. Words cannot express just how good this band is. It's heavenly.

This is the band's first album, dating back to 1970, and features their distinctive harmonising lead guitar sound from the very first track. The musicianship is superb, and their style reflects many influences : progressive rock, folk, jazz and blues. All the tracks are extremely good, and the longer songs are all interesting (by no means true of all bands of that time !), incorporating good drum and bass solos. My personal favourite is 'Errors of my Ways', which is probably the most folk-influenced, sounding similar to Fairport Convention, but with fantastic harmonising guitar ! This is simply a classic album which you must add to your collection.

This is the first in a long line of albums by wishbone ash and it is brilliant. Which is usual with wishbone ash. It has to be the best first album ever.Errors of my ways is one of the best song by wishbone ash. The stile of the music is rock with a very slight fokeiness in it. so to sum it up if you like wishbone ash you will love this.

Format: Audio CD
Their eponymous debut and musically still pretty fresh, even though the recording itself sounds a bit aged after all these years and the vocals are weak. The classic of the set is Handy to open S.2, with that great drum solo, though overall it's a good coherent album from the word go and one can hear just why it put them straight on the map. Many fans will consider that Argus was their absolute best, though for my money this one still runs it very close.

Oh yes, though rarely seen, for reasons unknown, it really is worth insisting on nothing less than the digitally remastered edition (on BGO Records), particularly in view of the vintage of this recording, the quality of which, it has to be said, was never outstanding even in its heyday. With the benefits of good remastering, it comes up a lot better.

I have to agree with the other reviewers here. This is an amazing album. Wishbone Ash maybe very unfashionable these days but I can't think of any album quite like this ( except for the next two they released). Part rock, part jazz, part blues with a very strong folk aesthetic sprinkled all over it, it might sound like a recipe for disaster only that it's quite the opposite. Brilliantly played and with some of the best, totally pure electric guitar tones you will ever hear..( and way better than the sounds they produced later in their career) this is a testament to their early genius. God knows why they couldn't keep up the momentum and allowed the wheels to fall off after the release of Argus. Still at least we've got the first 3 albums to cherish.

This is possibly the best debut album ever by one of the best bands ever featuring 2 of the best guitarists ever to play together.
The music is thrilling and the guitar playing just brilliant. This is an album every rock fan should own.

What a lucky lot we were, able to chose to see Rory Gallagher, Jeff Beck, Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, Savoy Brown, Steamhammer, Cochise, Procol Harum, Focus and so on on a stage near you tonight. And there were hundreds of other good bands who were all aspiring to be better players, write better songs and perform better on stage, not like the current lot who have one hit single and then go on to torment our ears at Glastonbury and at a stadium near you.
This first album from Wishbone features the great track "Handy", which is nearly an instrumental until Martin Powell sings and scats a verse or two, and then lets Andy Powell go for it. Andy is the only guitarist I know who makes his guitar squelch, he's a very fine player. Always surgically attached to his Gibson Flying V, he is a truly fluent and original player. Also on this fine record is Phoenix, which has a lovely intro nicked from the National Anthem ("Send her victorious, happy and glorious...") and then an epic song with the now trademark harmony guitars. What is extraordinary, though, is the chord sequence behind Ted Turner's truly odd solo, especially at the end, and I do not know anybody who has been able to follow it on the build-up. Very good. Errors of my Ways is a very listenable stab and the words, although rather elementary, are OK with the music.
Steve Upton is a useful drummer, and able to keep up Wishbone's ratta tat tat beloved tempo all night, or so it used to seem on stage.
Obviously a light year superior to anything produced recently but that really goes without saying. Test for you all: what are the names of the other members of Coldplay? No? Thought not.
