Turner, a founding member of Wishbone Ash, recently lost a court case to fellow original member Andy Powell over the rights to use the band name. He can however perform and record Wishbone Ash material to his liking, and that's what he does here on this live recording that spans a 2-CD set. About half the songs covered come from the band's early days when Wishbone Ash was at the height of their popularity; included from this era are "Valedictorian," "Jail Bait," "Doctor," "Lady Jay" and a hot take on Argus standout track "The King Will Come" featuring original guitarist Ted Turner. Ted Turner plays on a few additional songs and former Wishbone Ash guitarist Laurie Wisefield also appears, otherwise the band's famed twin guitar attack is handled nicely by Danny Willson and Ray Hatfield.
