4 stars Well,I am with olarlu on this one.

Way back some of my friends had 'Live Dates' and played it for me.I quite liked it.Did not have any Wishbone Ash myself,so when I came across 'Number of the brave' in a second hand shop ,I thought I would give it a go.As most Wishbone Ash fans know,this was not from their hey day out put,but I think it is an excellent album,never the less.Songs are shorter , punchy and catchy too,and yes,is a product of the times.(and to me quite successful at that).

John Wetton was on board on bass and sings too,and is very solid.

So all in all a very good AOR album from some great musicians trying to carry on, in a time when progressive was a naughty or nauseating word.I thank you for that.
