On May 16th 2015 Wishbone Ash recorded live direct-to-vinyl at Metropolis Studios in front of an invited audience.
This is something that no band has done for over 40 years!
As soon as the cutting needle hit the acetate the band started performing side A and didn't stop until the needle was lifted.
The process meant that even the gaps between songs were live.
If you want to own this piece of history now's your chance.
750 copies of the vinyl were pressed and there won't be a second pressing. It's sure to become a collectors' item in the future.
Now the US tour is almost over we'll be heading back across the pond for a
30 date UK tour.
We are delighted to announce that the very talented Doris Brendel will be supporting us on nine of the upcoming UK Tour shows.
