Wishbone Ash's The Vintage Years 1970-1991 is a  limited deluxe 30 CD box set.

 Authorised by all of the original band members, this beautifully packaged tribute to one of Britain’s finest Rock bands is loaded with rarities and memorabilia, and includes a lavish 156-page hardback book written by Classic Rock's Dave Ling. 

A third of the collection features previously unheard and unreleased material.Strictly limited to 2500 copies, all discs have been remastered.

Along with copious extras - posters, poster book, 7" single and more -  the set includes individually signed photos of each band member.

Released on Madfish, the label behind the award-winning Family, Steve Hillage and Small Faces box sets.


Founding member Martin Turner says, “We decided to give it all to the wonderful Pete Reynolds whom I believe has done a brilliant job of mixing and remastering a massive collection of work. It’s almost like having one’s whole musical life in one box.  It certainly represents the most comprehensive Wishbone collection that I know of and I hope you enjoy it."
Andy Powell adds, "It’s truly amazing to look back at the musically fertile 1970s and 1980s and wonder at the sheer amount of incredible creative output from our band. We had great roots and a really strong blueprint for success. I feel blessed to have played my part in it all and I’m truly thankful that it’s set the course for my entire life and all the music that’s followed, as the band continues to live on into the 21st century.”
