They seem to be growing bigger and bigger – like some 35 years ago. Last year WISHBONE ASH set their fans drooling with the "Almighty Blues", and now it’s time to be salivating once again. By the end of the spring there will be another DVD release: “Phoenix Rising” will include some classic tracks which for contractual reasons didn’t make it onto “Almighty Blues”, but what makes it much more worthwhile is a smattering of previously unreleased footage from the ’70s when the band were flying high. A must for the twin-guitars freaks.

“Mean Fiddler”, 2003:
1. The King Will Come
2. Phoenix
3. Living Proof
4. Wings Of Desire
5. Ballad Of The Beacon
6. Blowin’ Free
7. Bad Weather Blues
“Old Grey Whistle Test”, 1971:
8. Vas Dis
9. Jail Bait
ABC Australia, 1972:
10. Blowin’ Free
Bristol, 1989:
11. Cosmic Jazz
12. Why Don’t We
13. Real Guitars Have Wings

Meanwhile, the WISHBONE ASH guitarist Ben Granfelt put out his own anthology, “The Past Experience 1994-2004”.


There’s no need for Terry Reid‘s story to be told again: a great singer whose voice might challenge Steve Marriott’s had many misfortunes – and declining an offer to join Jimmy Page band which became LED ZEPPELIN is just one of those. But that was after Terry worked for Micky Most and released two brilliantly eclectic albums, “Bang, Bang, It’s Terry Reid” and “Terry Reid”. Some years ago they’ve been re-issued by Repertoire Records, yet now come out in one package, a double CD “Super Lungs: The Complete Studio Recordings 1966-69”, embellished with a dozen bonus tracks including some recorded just recently, in 2003.
