    When Miles Copeland took the band over to his IRS label in 1987, he reformed the original Wishbone Ash and recorded the Nouveau Calls album - an all-instrumental album. To reform the band, Copeland brought back Martin Turner, who had left in 1980, and Ted Turner, who left in 1974.

    This show in London was the first where Ted Turner reappeared. The tour started without Ted, who was stuck in Chicago, tangled by immigration matters. He would miss rehearsals and a couple of the shows as the tour kicked off on Feb 27. He makes it to the stage at the Hammersmith only for the second set.

    Clearly Turner was not under rehearsed as this concert shows. It's a tour de force of all the old chestnuts, The King Will Come, Jailbait, Phoenix and Blowin' Free. Mixed in are two new instrumental tracks off the Nouveau Calls album.

    How to describe this performance is perhaps best left to Steve Upton who said of their reunion:

    [W]e all looked pretty much the same as we did 15 years earlier - just a few more wrinkles and a little less hair. We had travelled different paths and our experiences had forged much stronger characters than when we were boys. Not just musically, but we were now men and had our own formulated ideas. It was fascinating seeing how we had all developed both as people and musicians. The latter was like putting on a well worn glove - it fitted perfectly.

    Compare this version of Phoenix with the last time they played it in 1974. There is a passion here that goes beyond nostalgia.

    This is a great recording made by the BBC, the stereo image is nice and wide with the drums properly miked. To the fan who taped it and shared it all those years ago, we thank you. Pass it on.
