  1. I’d love to see an EXPANDED Edition of Live Dates from Wishbone Ash. If all four shows were included in their entirety, with a new booklet, how cool that would be!!

  2. Previously unreleased in full. Tracks from these three shows were the bulk of the original release, as well as the previous 2cd deluxe edition. Now they’re releasing them in their entirety, and in correct running order which is great.
