shuffles and even the occasional legal tussle, they never completely went away.

The mighty Wishbone Ash, extant in various forms since the
late ‘60s – anybody who doesn’t own their classic album Argus really doesn’t know much about rock ‘n’ roll – but often
consigned in the minds of fans as an old dinosaur/classic rock act, is about to
release their first new studio recording in ages.
The good news? “Reason to Believe,” due May 17 at iTunes,
sounds like they never left. (The band can be found at WishboneAsh.com, btw.) The
bad news? Their ain’t any. Check out the official video, below. That’s followed
by a vintage live clip of “Warrior” from 1973.
The other news? Well, this is the Andy Powell-led Ash.
Powell was one of the founders. There’s also the other founder, Martin Turner,
who tours under the Wishbone Ash name as well; check him out at WishboneAsh.co.uk.
(Hint: both outfits have their merits.)
