It's amazing to know Wishbone Ash have been performing for over 40 years, in that time Wishbone Ash have had a number of line up changes while still being both true to their roots of their music while being fresh and innovative at the same time.
Don't look on this DVD as solely a nostalgis trip while they perform their classic numbers like Phoenix, Jailbait and The King Will Come they are as fresh today as the day they were first written the music just hasn't dated a sign of brilliant written and performed music throw in the mix some later number this was the making of a great night.
The line up is absolutely class, musicians all within their own right Joe Crabtree (Drummer)is stylish and masterful with his kit great to watch and listen,Bob Skeat (Bass)he just gets better and better great solid bassist holding everything together with Joe, Muddy Manninen The Iceman (Lead guitar)this guy is so cool he truly amazing talent innovative guitarist who puts his own interpretetion into the Ash classics making them feel and sound fresh and modern, then of course theres Mr Wishbone Ash himself Mr Andy Powell what can you say about this guy that hasn't already been said before truly one of our countries finest musicians how everytime you see him perform he conveys his passion for music to you it's a credit to Andy for blending the young talent with the more experienced shall we say. To top off the event Andy invited past members of Wishbone Ash to guest spot some numbers like Mervyn "Spam" Spence, Mark Birch another great talent and Ben Granfelt in all a fantastic performance captured on this DVD the only regret I have is I missed the concert.
Oh yes Wishbone Ash fans are special.
Hope you enjoy as much as I have
