4 stars Wishbone Four is a fine album, especially when compared to some later Wishbone Ash albums. No, it's not Son of Argus, as some expected. But there are some great songs and some great playing. So Many Things To Say, No Easy Road and Doctor are rocking numbers. Ballad Of The Beacon, Everybody Needs A Friend and Sorrel (perhaps my own fav Ash tune) are nice ballads. Fewer of the songs have the mystic quality more common on the first three Ash albums. While it's often underrated, Wishbone Four does have the classic Ash sound. But it would be nice to see Martin Turner remaster Wishbone Four to improve the sound. There is word that all of the Mark I and Mark II Wishbone Ash albums on MCA will be reissued in remastered deluxe editions. But for now, get the Japanese release of Wishbone Four; the sound is better than on other releases.
