    My first visit to this thread :) Thanks to Sox I've really took a recent shine to Wishbone Ash. My ex used to be a fan but for some reason I didn't much care for them back then, tracks I didn't like have now grown on me big style and I've heard some fantastic stuff that I'd never heard before. A few favourites...


    Living Proof


    Haunting Me



    (These are a couple of tracks I used to dislike at one time before I realised the error of my ways :))


    Warrior



    Throw Down the Sword

    ^^ Phoenix is my favourite from the first album. The solo is magic.

    Pilgrimage is nothing like the debut and pretty strange. Definitely far more prog then the hard rock of the Self titled debut but I liked it instantly. Perhaps my opinion was influenced somewhat :pimp: but liking it none the less.

    ^^^ For me DKW it's a great follow up album, pushing new directions. I really like the harmonies and silky guitar work, the shifts in style definitely work for me. Yeah I agree it has a prog feel about it.

    Valediction


    Brilliant album IMO :bow:

    Somewhat baffled by Pilgrimage after thier fantastic s/t debut but even more so with Wishbone 4 after Argus. The band lost me after There's The Rub.

    From 2002 "Bona Fide", back to that electric guitar driven sound after the acoustic album "Bare Bones" which was released six years earlier. The twin lead harks back with Powell and Granfelt complimenting each other so well. This is the only album to feature Ben Granfelt.

    Andy Powell - guitar, vocals
    Ben Granfelt - guitar, vocals on Difference in Time
    Bob Skeat - bass
    Ray Weston - drums

    These guys were a huge influence on Judas Priest.

    That's where they were going when wanting twin lead guitars. :grinthumb
