This is unfair! The Japanese people could hear a live Wishbone Ash recording of the Laurie era almost two years earlier than the rest of the world. Consider yourself lucky!
Always a tasty bit. (See more in the comments part of Live Dates Volume 2)
The first two songs appear on Live Dates Volume 2 too. Maybe Andyís solos are more aggressive on this Live in Japan version.
Andyís guitar jingles just as nice as on the studio version and Laurieís guitar crunches out riffs. The beginning of the song is somewhat "loose" but when it starts off, itís works real well.
A live version with Tedís lead vocals replaced by Martin. Yet the song, the battling guitars and dual leads sound just as good as before.
Another oldie thatís been reworked with Laurie. Not much changes. Laurie has stepped into Tedís role with ease.
