With its cover shots of the classic late 70s Wishbone Ash line up including the great Martin Turner on bass/vocals, one would expect this video to feature performances of that particular vintage. In fact what you get is the watered down Ash of the early eighties with Trevor Bolder on bass. This was Wishbone's lowest creative point - this DVD features mainly songs from their 1983 album "Twin Barrels Burning" in addition to a few earlier classics. The later material is weak heavy metal bearing no resemblence to the great melodic/progressive band of old. On the earlier material the guitarists fail sadly in their attempt to cover Martin Turner's original vocals. At times the vocals are excritiating and embarrasing. Overall a poor representation of a band who - at their peak - were one of the UK's best live acts. This could only possibly appeal to avid collectors as it contains nothing of any musical merit whatsoever.

This dvd is as good as the ten years after dvd at the same venue in the same year. Laurie Wisefield is the real star of the show here and it is a great pity that he is no longer with the group. The only down side in today's terms,is that the performance is a bit dated,ie.clothing etc. The picture is very good and the sound is also very good in digital stereo,digital 5.1 surround and dts 5.1 surround.

As often happens with Wishbone, the pictured line up is not the featured band. This is Wishbone Mark 3, Andy Powell and Laurie Wisefield in fine duelling in form. Trevor Bolder, ex-Spiders from Mars and Uriah Heep, takes over on bass from the plodding Martin Turner, vocals are shared between the guitarists, Andy relying on the, then, new studio effort, "Twin Barrels Burning" he had featured on. The material is early eighties and relatively heavy for Ash, who are, to be fair, not at their best here if you are a purist. They still excite however and turn in a lively performance of a set list featuring old favourites alongside contemporary numbers. On the whole this is a document of its time but certainly of interest to fans of the band's various incarnations over the years. This is a two sided disc, audio one side, pictures the other, marking this out as better value than a number of other releases of this type from other sources, and the first opportunity to officially buy this recording. Sound and picture quality are both very good excepting the beginning of the show which comes in half way through a number.

This 60 minute dvd of Wishbone Ash at the Marquee in 1983 showcases Laurie Wisefields extraordinary guitar playing as sterile songs from their last studio album are drastically re-arranged for this live recording.Andy Powell plays lead on only one track;"Underground".One reason for this is the video recording equipment packed up leaving only 60 minutes of the gig available on tape.Fortunately it is the best part.

In fact I own the original video release of this leaden phase of Wishbone Ash music-making. It shows a band plodding along in its struggle for survival. What saved the band from this derivative guitar-banging was the internet-driven fan-base: even the later line-ups of Andy Powell's Preservation Society would not have survived without it. That said, the wait was worth it, and you'd be much better off saving your money for a tour ticket or the latest live album "Live Dates 3" (not one of those endless repackagings, which are just a back-handed compliment, and hard to separate from one another) Or go for "Distillation", newly reissued at an even better price.... gallons of glorious guitar-work.
