CD Reviews

"This is a great cd in every respect, featuring John Wetton on bass/vocals, Claire Hammill on backing vocals. This disc has a very nice flow to it. 'Underground' has to be one of the best WA tracks ever. Everyone shines here. But that price: ouch! Whether or not this title has been remastered or not is not known, it could be just a straight transfer. The sound on the original lp was very good so the cd should sound good as well."
What a great ash!

"As a teen, I was the only person I knew who listened to Wishbone Ash, and I wish like heck I still had all the albums. But I foolishly let them go over the years, and now I'm working to reassemble it. Don't get me wrong, their stuff is not the greatest ever written. But the nearly unique sound of the harmonizing (and perfectly synchronized) dual guitars makes for great music to jam to. And for me, this album was the best of the ones I owned, at least. LOADED jams! KICKS ON THE STREET jams! And, yes, even their unexpected cover of GET READY kicks butt. The song is no longer R&B in their hands, yet they don't tamper with it much, they just drive it home hard. I think John Wetton's bass added to the great guitars is what made this album excel. Lyrically, these guys aren't much to write home about, but the music is well worth taking a look at.While I won't say you should spend $30 bucks for the CD just to try this obscure band out, if you can stumble across one somewhere, give it a listen. You'll wonder why you never caught on to these guys 20 some odd years ago."

"If your a fan of Wishbone Ash then you know all of their albums are good. Like any other band some albums are good and some are stand outs. This one is a stand out. Not a dull cut on the album. Powell and Wisefield cook!!! Stand out tracks are Open Road, Number the Brave, Loaded, and a GREAT cover of Get Ready.I highly recommend this album."
