So Many Things To Say

Album: Wishbone Four (1973)

Songfacts®:

  • In an on-line response to a fan sometime between 2001 and 2005, Martin Turner said of this track:
    "I always felt that the song was regarded as a bit off on a tangent for Wishbone, a bit throw away, noisy racket, Who-ish kind of stuff. I liked it live on stage especially, although I had to be very careful because it was the kind of belter that could screw your voice up, and that may even be why we stopped performing it. Arguably better than having to cancel shows because of sore throat syndrome."
  • The opening track from the 1973 Wishbone Four album is a group composition, and runs to 5 minutes 6 seconds. >>

  • Tim from Apex, NcGotta say I never once considered this a throw away track...actually for me it is quite the opposite!
