Tally Ho!

Album: Blue Horizon (2014)
  • Who would use the phrase "Tally Ho!" in a song? Noël Coward did in the quite awful "The Baseball Rag," but this downtempo number is a far better effort. Dedicated Wishbone Ash fans might consider this similar in content to "Underground" from Number The Brave which was co-written by Steve Upton, Laurie Wisefield and Andy Powell, except by the time this album was released, Messrs Upton and Wisefield were long gone while lead guitarist Andy Powell did not contribute to it. Nevertheless, at least one of its co-authors - Muddy Manninen and Ian Harris - appears to have been reading the same kind of conspiracy literature.
  • "Tally Ho!" runs to 4 minutes 42 seconds and is track 6 on the 2014 Blue Horizon album. >>
