Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash – The Beauty of Chaos: Live At the Citadel (Dirty Dog Discs, 2018)
A triple boxed set by bassist, singer and composer Martin Turner, one of the founders of the great British band Wishbone Ash.
The set includes two audio CDs with the ”Written in the Stars” album performed live in its entirety together with a selection of the best of Wishbone Ash. The DVD contains the videotaped performance plus interviews with Turner and members of the band.
The Beauty of Chaos features an excellent band. Wishbone Ash was known for its excellent dual electric guitar and bass interplay and this band doesn’t disappoint. Martin Turner’s vocals are not what they used to. Nevertheless, he delivers compelling performances of Wishbone Ash’s most memorable songs.
Throughout the album, there is superb guitar and bass work, along with the equally good drumming.
