Wishbone Ash

A new limited edition box set titled Wishbone Ash The Vintage Years 1970-1991 is to be released in April next year.

The package has been authorized by all of the original members of the veteran UK hard rock band, and comes with 30 CDs, with a third of the material featuring previously unheard and unreleased material.

It will feature all 16 studio albums, along with outtakes and b-sides, and the three original live albums Live Dates, Live Dates Volume Two and Live In Tokyo. Eight previously unreleased live albums that were recorded between 1973 and 1980 are also included.

There’s also a new interview with the band, a lavish 156-page hardback book, a 36-page poster book, four reproductions of original live posters, a 7-inch flexi-disc for the single “Blind Eye” and individually signed photos of Martin Turner, Andy Powell, Ted Turner, Steve Upton and Laurie Wisefield.

Martin Turner says: “I looked after most of these tape recordings for decades, wondering when they would ever see the light of day and I am very glad that they will at last be available for everyone to hear.”

It’s limited to just 2500 copies though. More details at Pledge Music.
