Wishbone Ash: New England

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 6 November 1976

EVEN IN their basement studio during the formulative stages of recording New England, this album sounded good. Rough mixes of the album sounded good in the mobile truck. Finished tapes sounded good in the MCA conference room. But the genuine piece of vinyl sounded even better on the home turntable. Wishbone Ash have found the echo they lost on their last two albums. Say hello to the electric guitar twins.
