Live Dates 2 is a live compilation album by Wishbone Ash pulling together recordings from 1976 to 1980.
In the original Live Dates, Ted Turner was the second guitarist duelling with Andy Powell but in Live Dates 2, he’s replaced by Laurie Wisefield.
The CD has been unavailable for many years except as an expensive import, but checking on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk shows that you can now get it for a normal price.
