Track List Side 1: Time Was - Sometime World - Blowin' Free
Track List Side 2: The King Will Come - Leaf and Stream -
Warrior - Throw Down the Sword.
Time Was when I heard a loud ragin' fire
and the sound of glory raised from the Ash;
when my Sometime World long playing higher
dazzled the age with a hot vinyl flash.
That Flying V, Fender Strat, Blowin' Free
amplified in my ear and in my brain,
and The King Will Come slowly unto me
when I hear the piper and drum again.
In beauty of Leaf and Stream evermore
comes the hypnotic Wishbone trance that was;
like a Warrior at the gates of war
to rise again the legend of Argus.
And in the end a new age will record
the great band of four who Throw Down the Sword.
Dedicated to the 1972 album, Argus,
by Wishbone Ash.
Still a classic!
