Two albums by Wishbone Ash, Twin Barrels Burning (1982) and Raw to the Bone (1985), have been released as official and remastered definitive editions. Each album is available on 2-CD and picture disc LP with extensive bonus materials.

Both albums feature new liner notes by rock journalist Dave Ling, including new interviews with all the surviving members and archive quotes from the late Trevor Bolder.

Twin Barrels Burning includes the American remixes of the album on a second disc, which have never been on CD before.

Raw to the Bone is a 23-track 2-CD set with bonus tracks including all four unreleased songs from the post-album 1986 Sessions. The bonus CD also includes The Friday Rock Show BBC Sessions, which are often described as better than the album versions, plus four live tracks from Hammersmith.

These re-issues by Cherry Red are fully approved by Steve Upton, Laurie Wisefield, Andy Powell, Merv Spence and the estate of Trevor Bolder.
