Wishbone Ash - Throw Down The Sword

preferably the version from Live Dates for the killer solo, but the overlapping solos on the original studio recording are wonderful as well

versus

Judas Priest - Dreamer Deceiver


two rather similar songs in structure, tempo, mood, and style, but which do you prefer?






Just for the solo on Live Dates, Wishbone Ash gets my vote here.

Got no clue about Wishbone Ash. Heard the name before and that's it. So Priest because it's f***in Priest.

In this case, a vote for one is no slight to the other .. Both songs are classic IMHO

But I think that Throw Down The Sword hits perfection - Wishbone Ash at their finest

Couldn't agree more!

I knew nothing about Wishbone Ash, had no real connection with them, but I was digging the live record I'd just bought. Then I heard just the first two notes of the solo in Throw Down The Sword, and I was held captive for the next couple minutes by the astounding feat of a man singing through his guitar.


But Dreamer Deceiver has such an incredible build, and Halford slays his vocal (as usual). Fine solo too.
