Wishbone Ash has launched a straight-to-vinyl live album, recorded as it was played, with just 750 copies available, and Andy Powell and Co have confirmed a UK tour for October and November. The vinyl record, “Live at Metropolis”, was recorded at the London venue in May. The band explains: "As soon as the cutting needle hit the acetate, we started performing side A, and didn't stop until the needle was lifted. The process meant that even the gaps between songs were live". Andy Powell, who won a legal battle with Martin Turner over the band's name last year, says of the tour: "We're looking forward to reconnecting with fans from the past who are just catching on that we've been touring non-stop for 46 years. And for our faithful fans who've walked with us consistently, we have some special things in store".
