Live Dates is the first live album by the British rock band Wishbone Ash.

Following the release of the album, founding member Ted Turner left the band, resulting in a shift of the band's musical approach.

Track listing[edit]

The album was recorded in June 1973 at Croydon Fairfield Halls,[A] Reading University,[B] Newcastle City Hall,[C] and Portsmouth Guildhall.[D] The version of "Phoenix" on disc one was recorded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1972, and was also included on the Live from Memphis album. However, the MCA double-album set (MCA2-8006) also issued in June 1973, contains only the seventeen minute, thirteen second version. It follows "Lady Whiskey" on side four.
