^ Yep, sh*t, that's the one.........just got my batch of LP's in the mail today. First album I put on - Wishbone. It looks legit, has the acetate tracks plus some extra studio material from the 'Pilgrimage' sessions. The tracks are significantly different enough from the debut proper to be another special listen for me. I didn't expect it to be a b##t.....

Oh dear.  What gives the "First Lights" LP away as being a b**t are the extra tracks that are lifted directly from the Pilgrimage album.....these are not on the legitimate CD release of "First Light"....oh an the added "s"  to "Light" also hints it being a suspect release.

I have to admit - the vocal version of 'Alone' is just superb - love the emphasis on the arpeggio guitaring. These guys must've been onto something special back in the day.

To be honest, when I made my selections from an updated list of 'vinyl availables', I thought " yay, First Light on LP "      
I just assumed that the extra 's' on 'light' was just a typo.....
How many times has anyone heard Genesis 'Nursery Cryme' referred to as 'Nursery Crymes'......?
BTW, the volume control of my stereo has to be cranked up really high (mid 20's...whatever that means...) to have a decent listening volume.......(no, I'm not deaf..... )......
I don't wilfully purchase b##ts, though my lack of knowledge on certain vinyl issues hampers me somewhat, and excitement kicks in and it mostly pans out in favour of me (and the artist.....). I'd give a few bob to Mart and his buddies should I ever get a chance to speak with him in person.............

It was a choice between the 1st album and NE. I went for New England because I love Laurie Wisefield's solo's. He is my fave Wishbone Ash guitarist.
I used to play in a Wishbone Ash tribute band before forming a Budgie tribute band. In fact Martin Turner is a personal friend of mine i'm pleased to say. Here he is playing on my old Rickenbacker 4001 in the studio, which he borrowed for his "Argus Through The Looking Glass" album that he released with his current band. I have not been active on this forum for a long toime so forgive me if you've seen this before!

Argus
Sole survivor. No witness to the crime. I must act fast to cover up. I think that there`s still time. He`d seem hopeless and lost with this note. They`ll buy into the words that I wrote.

^^ Nice pic - thanks for posting that.
Always good to see Mart in action. Wishbone S/T is just plain AMAZING, I wouldn't change a thing on it.
New England is an album I have to keep an eye out for.
