Wishbone Ash - From The Ashes (1978)

As I mentioned in my last Wishbone Ash post, the band were very prolific during the years 1978 and 1979, and recorded a lot of material which didn't make it onto their 'Just Testing' and 'No Smoke Without Fire' albums, and this post is made up of tracks from the 'No Smoke...' sessions in 1979, together with a couple of 'Locked In' leftovers ('Bad Weather Blues' is the studio take of 'Fully Tested's live recording) and a contemporary recording from the 'Lost Pearls' collection. Once again, it stands up very well as an album in it's own right, showing the high quality of the songs that they rejected as not good enough for their albums.

  1. Thank you again ! I particularly loved 'Time and Space' and its guitars parts on the 'Distillation' Boxset.
    Great !!


  2. Great stuff, thank you. I didn't know there was so much unreleased Ash.
