Top Ten Best Wishbone Ash Songs

The Top Ten

1 Throw Down the Sword

Almost 50 years on and it still makes me feel the same way xx

That second between the end of the singing (... for an answer...) and the first note of the guitar solo (3:40-3:41), one of the most magical moments of the rock history. Tears - goose bumps

If heaven exists and I go there I want Andy on my left and Ted on my right playing the solos on this as I walk through the pearly gates.

Never get tired of hearing the twin guitar solo in this song.

2 The King Will Come

Great guitars

Guitar work is phenomenal

Live Dates Version better than Argus, or?

Should be number 1

3 Phoenix

Awesome song from my teen years!

Never surpassed. Their best.

By far their best track. Truly awesome

It is a fire bird

4 Warrior

Great song and definitely one of my favorites.

5 Blowin' Free

Love it

6 Sometime World

This is a biggie. Everyone on here is great. Andy Powell's solo is awesome.

Amaaazing bass

7 Persephone


Amazing and beautiful song, which I've known by Polish Radio Trojka

8 Time Was

The first Wishbone Ash song I ever heard. The start of their best album obviously because all seven songs are in the top 10.

A long song, but worth every second.

9 Leaf and Stream

A great classic to be remembered for years to come.
