Capturing the supergroup supplying An Evening Of Yes Music Plus between Yes unions/reunions/lawsuits, this is a recording that fans of bass whiz Tony Levin will have craved; he later took ill and was replaced by Jeff Berlin.
Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe: Live At The NEC
Oct 24th 1989
It’s a Brum do for the prog stalwarts.
Sound quality is good but not amazing, but the spirit of the show and the band members’ virtuosity shines through, even with Bruford making a right racket on his fancy electronic kit (following Long Distance Runaround).
With a replica programme and a low-key behind-the-scenes vid by supplementary key fella Julian Colbeck included – backstage for Anderson’s birthday, side-stage for Wakeman’s audience request outrage – ABWH Live is a fun addition to the aficionado’s catalogue.
Just say yes.
