She Was My Best Friend

Album: Locked In (1976)

Songfacts®:

  • Even the greatest artists and bands produce the odd duff song or album. That is the unfortunate consensus regarding Locked In; Wishbone Ash are up there with the best of them, but reviewing it, one fan, Neil Ferguson, said of this track:
    "'She Was My Best Friend' still makes me cringe even now. I never listened to it for about 20 years."
  • Running to 3 minutes 52 seconds, "She Was My Best Friend" is a Martin Turner solo composition, and one he would clearly like to forget. It was the 4th track on this 1976 album which was recorded at Atlantic Studios, New York City, produced by Tom Dowd, and released on the MCA label. >>
