Reseña de álbum

If Wishbone Ash can be considered a group who dabbled in the main strains of early-'70s British rock without ever settling on one (were they a prog rock outfit like Yes, a space rock unit like Pink Floyd, a heavy metal ensemble like Led Zeppelin, or just a boogie band like Ten Years After?), the confusion compounded by their relative facelessness and the generic nature of their compositions, Argus, their third album, was the one on which they looked like they finally were going to forge their own unique amalgamation of all those styles into a sound of their own. The album boasted extended compositions, some of them ("Time Was," "Sometime World") actually medleys of different tunes, played with assurance and developing into imaginative explorations of new musical territory and group interaction. The lyrics touched on medieval themes ("The King Will Come," "Warrior") always popular with British rock bands, adding a majestic tone to the music, but it was the arrangements, with their twin lead guitar parts and open spaces for jamming, that made the songs work so well. Argus was a bigger hit in the U.K., where it reached the Top Five, than in the U.S., where it set up the commercial breakthrough enjoyed by the band's next album, Wishbone Four, but over the years it came to be seen as the quintessential Wishbone Ash recording, the one that best realized the group's complex vision. [The 2002 "Remastered & Revisited" reissue was remixed by bassist Martin Turner, who expanded the sound picture without isolating the instruments too much, retaining the sense of interplay yet making the sound bigger. The reissue was improved by the addition of the 1972 promotional EP Live from Memphis. It consisted of three songs from earlier albums — "Jail Bait," "The Pilgrim," and "Phoenix" — performed at length.]

Argus by Wishbone Ash-Not just nostalgic, but classic!

Having grown up in the 60's and 70's, influenced musically by my drummering brother John, older by six years, a lot of the musicians I revered as a teenager were at least in part inherited admiration. Such was not the case with Wishbone Ash. I fell in love with their Argus album the first time I heard it. An aspiring vocalist/guitarist, their complicated riffs and delectible harmonies were all I sought in any rock and roll band. Add lyrics that told a story and an album with connected, yet varied and individual stylizing elements and you've got one of the most underrated British bands to ever set foot on American soil. It was also my great privilege to see them perform live at Gonzaga University's Kennedy Center in about 1974. They were every bit the live performers of my favorite band 'Yes', but without the phenomenal staging, props and light show. Still, if you've never heard Wishbone Ash, please trust me, the purchase of this downloaded album is well worth the price of admission to their loyal listening family. Enjoy!

Argus!!! Where else can you hear quality, and get a medeival story ?

Gone are the days of rock bands telling stories. With Spinal Tap either mocking this kind of music or sounding it's virtues it seems no one is going in this dirrection anymore. But, everything comes around again and this will be no exception. Itunes has given us a chance to listen to these classics, but there is an album byWishbone Ash that Itunes dos'nt have yet. I'm speaking of the "No Speak " album they did in the 80`s. Its great! There were a number of groups that got together and did these "No Speak "albums. Of course 'no speak' says it all, there are no lyrics at all, its all instrumental and it`s a great album.The problem is I can't remember it's name, my bad. Look for it , you wo'nt be disapointed, Rock on!!

Classic Album,Classy Band

I was hooked on Wishbone Ash from the time I first heard "Phoenix" from their 1st album.I bought everything they released thru the first 7 albums.Personnel changes and artistic changes caused me to lose my enthusiasm for them.But,to me,Argus was their crowning achievement,their Sgt. Pepper'if you will.All,I repeat all the original tracks are top-notch quality songs!Downloading any or all of them is a can't-miss situation.You have out&out rockers,multiple tempo shifts,great vocals and harmonies,dual guitar mastery and one exquisitely beautiful ballad(Leaf And Stream.)Adding the 3 live tracks is just icing on the cake.I also hear that Andy Powell is still playing in some 21st century version of Ash...good for him!A musical trivia note,if itunes ever gets "Ashes Are Burning"(studio version)check out Andy's soaring guitar solo on the title track.

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...
