New Wishbone Ash Compilation: Past and Present For Release Febuary 25 2008

Wishbone Ash were massive in the mid-1970’s but have faded into the history books and are virtually unheard of by many younger rock fans. Less posing than much of prog at the time, more relaxed than hard rock, they added a luxurious folk and even jazz feel to the classic rock sound.

They are most famous for inventing the twin guitar sound, picked up by Thin Lizzy and Judas Priest, to great effect. Their album Argus (see post) is also considered one of the masterpieces of 70’s rock.

A new best of style double album will be released on Febuary 25, 2008 called Past and Present, covering 35 years of live work and tracks from each of their classic records
