‘Number Of The Brave’ is their 11th studio album. After Martin Turner (bass, vocals, production) left in 1980, he was briefly replaced in 1981 by the incomparable John Wetton (bass, vocals) from King Crimson. Also featured on the album is backing vocalist Claire Hamill, who would permanently join Wishbone Ash on their 1981 tour. From the first moment with opener “Loaded” it was evident that the band’s line-up change hadn’t caused them to lose a step. In fact, Wetton‘s vocals actually were in some ways superior to Turner‘s and added another dimension to the arrangements. Songs like “Underground”, “Kicks On The Street”, “Where Is The Love” and the beautiful rocker “Rainstorm” were absolutely top-notch.
