4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun This, 2 April 2015
Wonderful to have these on dvd. The 4x3 wide aspect will get full you screen missing nothing. Can do without the dull Red Sector A at all. Body Electric, Afterimage and Red Lenses are better choices for me. What's with the 3 Pink Floyd references by the summary reviewer??

Superb.2 shows a day, and Marriots voice still kills. Great Frampton guitar, no shredding. Try the 'Eat It' show on the King Biscuit cd to, big sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing show, great product no 5.1 audio??, 6 Jan. 2015
Received this box not long after buying DCI Banks DVD's. Both atmospheric shows but unlike U.S. HBO series don't offer an involving discrete 5.1 audio?? C'mon the Pom's pull finger.

4.0 out of 5 stars No 5.1 discrete surround audio for this atmospheric thriller., 6 Jan. 2015
This review is from: DCI Banks [DVD] (DVD)
Great but 2 channel stereo audio only?? Great all round production of course that deserves a more involving audio option. Got Hustle box set at the same time, no 5.1 either?? The U.S. HBO product like True Detective, The Wire and Deadwood all offer 5.1. C'mon Poms, finger out chaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting journey, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always loved Wishbone Ash in the '70s and often beyond. I was a touring bass player then also which added to my enjoying the book. I also met Mart briefly while running for a train, at the Odeon H.Smith Dec. !985, he was a gentleman. I was in Auckland at Western Springs Stadium March 1975 where their album There's the Rub made No.3 in the charts. The book contains many anecdotes from this show and countless others. Well written and recommended with great photos as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great and twee with proper bass playing, 10 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Wonderworld (Audio CD)
This was the last time the band would be at it's most original. Some good songs and 3 or 4 weak ones. Their bass player would not appear again except according to the book Wizards and Demons, on a single called Prima Donna in October 1974. I am sure main writer Ken Hensley would agree this made a difference. Although great bass players would follow, a distinct contribution to the songs and identity was lost. Gary Thain read charts from an early age and always had an ego free approach to playing an accompaniment instrument, unless otherwise and rarely required, as on Suicidal Man on this cd. You don't here this style much in Rock, Greg Ridley from Humble Pie also had it, as if taught on Double Bass. The bass sound quality was also very clear in concert when I saw them Dec.1st in Auckland 1974. They also had a the best frontman in the '70's. Just ahead of Ian Anderson. Buy this for the bass and vocals.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why no disc one remix?, 18 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Jailbreak (Audio CD)
Classic A grade rock but where is the production guitarist Scott Gorham longed for? The chronological original album deserves better. Remastering only cleans it up, you need to remix from the original tapes. Forget about Fred, Joe and Uncle Sam's remix just get in a pro who can find the power and retain the band identity. The Wishbone Ash Argus remix by Martin Turner is a great example of how it's done. If you heard "Opium Trail" and "Bad Reputation" (complete with drum solo) on the Live Killers 12" Vinyl EP version from Seneca 1977 you would know the power of Lizzy. Massive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused and concerned, 15 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Live And Dangerous (Audio CD)
Classic live.. album up there with Humble Pie at the Fillmore and UFO Strangers in the Night.Scott Gorham said Lizzy never had production. So bring in a cool professional and REMIX each album in chronological order from the masters, retaining the bands own sound. There seems to be some confusion here, remastering just cleans it up, it doesn't find the power. You have to remix. Forget about Fred And Joe and Uncle Dicks remix. Has anyone heard what Martin Turner did to Wishbone Ash Argus? Now thats a remix job. If you heard "Opium Trail" and "Bad Reputation" live at Seneca College in "77 on the Live Killers 12" Vinyl EP you would know the power of Lizzy - massive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Sound that Rocks with Class., 22 Jan. 2011
To this day I have not heard a live album that sounds this good. Sure Humble Pie at the Fillmore and Live and Dangerous etc. are classics but don't sound like this. Bass player Martin Turner produced this gem and it is a credit to him. Songs are from concerts by the Mark II line up in 1976,77,78 and 80 - a side from each. Does anyone know where guitarist Laurie Wisefield went in the middle of Goodbye Baby! I hope There's the Rub, New England and Front Page News come out complete as remixed on the Distilation box set available on this site. Steve - a Kiwi in OZ.
