Expanded two CD pressing. This set also includes the Friday Rock Show BBC sessions which are often described as better than the album versions. The bonus tracks also include a holy grail for Wishbone Ash fans - all four unreleased songs from the post-album 1986 sessions. Includes liner notes by rock journalist Dave Ling. Digitally remastered edition of this 1985 album from the veteran British rockers. Raw to the Bone is the 13th album by Wishbone Ash and is their only album to feature Mervyn Spence on bass and vocals. It is also the last album with guitarist/vocalist Laurie Wisefield, who ended his eleven-year stint with Wishbone Ash after the release of this album. This reissue is fully approved by Steve Upton, Laurie Wisefield, Andy Powell and Merv Spence.

This is a more mainstream approach, and less esoteric subject matter helps connectivity. A (slightly) touger stage image also shows the affect of the boys having lived through the NWOBHM. Also appearing at more 'rock' events like the Loreley Metal Hammer Festival shows the band attempting to garner some street cred.
Production wise this doesn't sound too bad, the Ash come acros as talented buys off in a slightly heavier direction to some of their earlier stuff and the cover art backs this up.
Personal faves would include lead cut, Cell of Fame which touches on the pitfalls of success. Rocket in my Pocket is slightly funky and Don't You Mess has a pleasant groove.
Perhaps the most accessable Ash studio album and that means it's perhaps a good place to start for the newcomer. A strong three stars for my mind.
