MayDay - AshCon99 in Chicago Video - Comments


The in every other way flawless editing has a few funny details:

The edited version of Ballad of the Beacon only includes the first and the last verse. As it happens the lyrics on these verses are the same.

Andy Powell tells that two verses of Mountainside's lyrics were written before the melody (which is exceptional for Wishbone Ash, says Andy). When the video continues with the actual song, it is played from the "Take me to the mountainside" part onwards. The two verses are "left behind".
