3 stars It was at the home of my best friend in the second half of the Seventies that I heard Wishbone Ash for the first time. I was immediately blown away by the pleasant melodic sound, based upon the captivating duo-guitarwork by Andy Powell and Ted Turner. I started to check out their albums and discovered that Wishbone Ash showed many different faces on those albums, from folk rock and art rock to heavy bluesrock. I was mostly pleased with the LP Argus, in my opinion their most mature and captivating effort. On this DVD you can see previously unreleased live footage from that era like early Seventies TV shots, very exciting to see Turner and Powell with their guitars! The label Classic Rock Productions has released some controversial and even misleading DVD's but I love the serie Inside (I have already bought ELP, Yes, Pink Floyd, Bowie and Genesis) because of the interesting mix of story telling, historical facts, jokes and rare video footage 1971, 1973, 1983, 1984 and 1989. I never knew that Wisbone Ash auditioned for a keyboard player before their debut LP, they finally took another guitarplayer because in those days every band wanted to sound special and for sure Wishbone Ash did with their duo guitar work! If you like musical documentaries, just enjoy this fine DVD story about a folk rock band that gradually turned into a harder-edged bluesrock band but always kept a fanatic cult-following, they deserve it and are still alive and rocking!
