About Disc Two, The King Will Come - Live

* Ballad of the Beacon fades out in mid song.

Tracks 1-8, 1976 Live in Davenport, USA (No such gig according to the Collector's Guide...)
Tracks 9-13, 1973 Live in Canada.

Quoting Wolfgang Schmidt:
"Suppose tracks 1-8 recorded on March 6, 1976 at Schreveport, Lousiana.
Tracks 9-13 Toronto March 29, 1973 or Ottawa, March 30, 1973?"

Line up: Andy Powell, Laurie Wisefield (tracks 1-8), Ted Turner (tracks 9-13),
Martin Turner and Steve Upton.
Graham Maitland (ex-Glencoe), keyboards on tracks 1 to 8.


What's Unique About This?

Re-released rare live recordings from MK1 and MK2 era + a couple even more rare BBC recordings.
The King Will Come - Live is the only CD where Graham Maitland's keyboards can be heard
playing together with Wishbone Ash. The thing that's extra unique is the "Non-Ted" version of Rock 'n Roll Widow on CD2.
