Wishbone Ash

I've just been watching this DVD, and all i can say is "wow."

Actually, no, that's not true, i can say lots more than that.  I can say, for example, peter piper picked a peckle picker popper pupple, oh ok i can't say that.

Wishbone Ash was / is one of my favourite groups of the 70's and 80's.  They, along with Thin Lizzy, virtually invented the dual-lead-guitar line-up, and, for a while, one of my top-ten favourite guitarists, Laurie Wisefield, was a member and yes! he makes a guest appearance on this DVD.

Wishbone Ash's brilliance always lay in their instrumental prowess.  They never really had a strong vocalist and their songwriting was, er, how can i say? sometimes less than extraordinary.

One of my favourite groups nonetheless.
