3 stars The Ash begins to glow

It is difficult to know how to classify "First light". Although released in 2007, the contents actually date from 1970, and thus feature the original line up of the band (the one which recorded the legendary "Argus"). These tracks were recorded by Wishbone Ash to present to record companies in the hope of securing a contract. Whether they were ever intended to be released as an album in this format is doubtful, the recordings really being advanced demos. The tapes lay dormant in the vaults for many years until they were sold at auction in 2006, then released on album by their new owner.

In any event, while these recordings did not make it onto album in the early 1970's, pretty much all of the songs eventually did. While hearing advanced demos of familiar songs will appeal to many fans of the band, it is the two previously unreleased numbers which will generate the most interest. "Roads Of Day To Day" is a magnificent 6 minute number which could have fitted in well on any of the first three albums. This rather moody song was perhaps felt to be too soft for the likes of "Pilgrimage", but in retrospect it could easily have become recognised as a Wishbone Ash classic had it been brought to full fruition on say "Argus". This track alone makes "First light" essential for all fans of the band. "Joshua" on the other hand is a largely forgettable guitar indulgence.

Tracks such as "Blind eye" and "Lady whiskey" from the eponymous début album are instantly recognisable, as is the over long "Handy" (which includes a tediously long drum solo). In all, five of the tracks ("Queen of torture" and "error of my ways" being the other two) here appeared on that first album, with the superb "Phoenix" being the only track not represented in some form on "First light".

The song "Alone" had to wait until "Pilgrimage" to see the light of day, where it appeared as a brief but enjoyable instrumental. The original version here is slightly longer and includes vocals. As such it is somewhat different to the "Pilgrimage" track, but once again well worth hearing. (Interestingly, the official Wishbone Ash website still describes this version as an "instrumental").

In view of the new improved versions which made it onto the first album, this set is largely for collectors only. The inclusion of "Roads of day to day" and the vocal version of "Alone" rather changes things though. Fans of the band should investigate immediately!

4 stars A truly solid production from the classic rock titans. This album contains a little bit of everything, some old tunes presented in a more original form, and some song previously unreleased, but overally the strongest point of this album is the presence of all four original musicians from the ARGU ...

4 stars First Light is the first studio recording by the original Wishbone Ash lineup, recorded in Spring & Summer 1970 at Advision Studios with engineers Phil Dunne and Eddie Offord.
