Hey Andy this is for www.rokpool.com 1) Wishbone Ash will be playing live dates, are you excited about this? Yes indeed! We've had a low key summer, time spent recharging the batteries, but we will tour solidly during the next 6 months. 2) Looking back at Wishbone Ash classics like "Argus", do you still listen to the albums? I've revisited these albums recently because I updated my home hi fi gear and have been spinning the old vinyl. So good. Ordinarily I haven't spent a lot of time listen . . .

BEAUTIFUL i saw a review that said a of Beautiful, the Carol King story, 'a Tapestry of great hits' (clever eh) well it sure was. Actually Tapestry is one of my all time favourite albums, there is something about the line in the song Tapestry, 'Once he reched for something gold and hanging from a tree, but his hand came down empty' that seems so full of lost opportunity, said so poetically that I could only wonder at her skills. Anyway back to Beautiful, I defy anyone not to enjoy this show, packed with so many of the Goffin King hits and latterly Kings alone, (and a number from other writers of that era), and the story is pretty interesting too. So a big thumbs up from me. Robin Smith
