Yet another rehash of "Phoenix Rising" DVD. See also items:
  - 2004 - Phoenix Rising - Inside Wishbone Ash DVD
  - 2006 - Live Broadcasts DVD

Audio CDs of the same source were also published in:
  - 2011 - Performance - CD
  - 2011 - Classic Airwaves - CD
  - 2016 - Live to Air - CD

An LP with partially the same tracks was also published in:
  - 2017 - Across the Airwaves

This is an enhanced CD with audio from the Live Broadcasts DVD, less Where Were You Tomorrow. The additional (enhanced) part includes Quicktime video versions of Vas Dis and Jail Bait (Live at the BBC 1971).

The back side of the CD says: "This is classic Ash by the classic line up".
Not entirely true. See the track list below:

The book is a 72 page story by Bob Carruthers. It tells about Bob's youth and comments on main studio albums until year 2001. Very diplomatic, since all historical controversy is left out.


Curiously enough, the back side of the book says that the CD was published in 2005!
No trace of this CD before year 2008 and all web shops mentioning publishing years say "2008".
