Wishbone Ash - Tracks (1972-2001 uk, live recordings of great classic songs, 2001 double disc release)



'Tracks' is a collection of rare versions of some of Wishbone Ash's best loved work, along with some seldom heard gems and surprises. The revolving Wishbone line-up is well presented with all the usual suspects. The music selected for this album treats the listener to exciting live versions of classic songs that have contributed to a legacy, that is uniquely 'Wishbone'. 

The airing of this archive material, gives us a backstage pass, shedding a new light on a great British band's stage performances, both from years gone by, right up to the year 2001. Raw and unadulterated, check out the inimitable twin lead sound that blazed a trail for many others, who have often tried, but never improved on the original blueprint laid down by this British original in late 1969.
