Album Review

The progressive aspirations were put aside for Wishbone Four, the group's most solid-rocking album, though the folk-based element is still there, more solid than ever. "Ballad of the Beacon" is a genuinely beautiful song, and might have come from any number of electric folk-rock bands — the fact that it came from Wishbone Ash indicates just how serious they were in wanting to explore some of these sounds. Their most mature and successful album.

Wishbone Fabulous

A definate favourite with Wishbone Ash fans is Wishbone Four. Funnily enough it's the original line up's (Martin Turner, Ted Turner, Andy Powell and Steve Upton) fourth album and the last with this line up for over 10 years. The type of songs vary incredibly - from the upbeat "No easy Road" to the solumn but gorgeous "Everybody Needs a Friend". All in all quite a time piece with their trade mark Twin Lead Guitars and melodical Bass. Not to be missed!

fourgone conclusion! pull this wishbone!

well,wishbone ash followed argus with this offering and they didn,t fail to deliver,from the ballads sorrel,everybody needs a friend,sing out the song and ballad of the beacon to the rockers doctor,so many things to say ,no easy road and rock n roll widow theres not a bad track on it.there does seem to be a more mature sound to the twin lead guitars that enhance the album to a different feel from argus.i have to say that being an ash from the days when we all had more hair ,this is a record to drift back in the soft mellow songs and pretend to have hair to the rockers.needless to say it is a fourgone conclusion that this is one of ash,s better offerings!

During the early- and mid-'70s, Wishbone Ash were among England's most popular hard rock acts. The group's roots dated to the summer of 1966, when drummer Steve Upton formed a band called Empty Vessels with bassist/vocalist Martin Turner and guitarist Glen Turner. Empty Vessels soon changed their name to Tanglewood and moved to London; during a gig at the Country Club in Hampstead, they were seen by would-be rock manager Miles Copeland, who was impressed with the jazz and progressive rock influences...
