Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. The year was 1989 when former Yes-men Jon Anderson, Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman, and Steve Howe, longing to rekindle the magic that defined Yes music in the 70's, joined forces to record and release a new album. Dubbed simply Anderson Bruford Wakeman & Howe, they released the album to critical acclaim as fans around the globe watched in wide-eyed amazement at this most unlikely turn of events. And as if a new studio album wasn't enough, ABWH set course upon a breathtaking world tour titled, An Evening Of Yes Music Plus. The setlist for the ABWH tour was a Yes fan's dream, including 'Starship Trooper', 'Heart Of The Sunrise', 'Close To The Edge', 'And You And I', 'Roundabout', and other Yes classics. Fans were also treated to tracks from the new ABWH album along with stunning solo performances from the four principals. Voiceprint.

First, my personal disclaimer: I know that this is technically AWBH, but technically AWBH is the classic version of YES that sprang up during the late 1980's in response to (or rather as a revolt against) the eighties modern YES, which remains controversial to this day. So with all due respect to the lawyers and the industry execs I'll refer to them as YES from here on out - even though there is no Chris Squire.

I was happy to learn that Voiceprint re-released this concert video on DVD for a number of reasons. First, the CD version of this concert has long been one of my favorite YES concerts. Second, this period of time is rather significant in YES history. It is when 80% of YES's classic lineup stood their ground and kept their music going so that it could be discovered by the ensuing generation of music fans - including myself. As I said in my 9012-Live review, I am one of the very few YES fans in existence who appreciates both the Trevor Rabin version and the classic version of YES. This period, just prior to the Union show/adventure/debacle, planted the seeds for my discovery of what classic YES is all about - and I am grateful. Third, and finally, it is a great show that covers a bunch of the great classic YES songs.

As far as the DVD itself is concerned, I'm not disappointed, but I am not particularly blown away either. The concert is from the 1989/1990 world tour, and if I recall correctly, this was originally a Laserdisc release that has since been dumped onto DVD. The result is something that looks marginally better than VHS, but is not quite up to par with the DVD video standards that we've all grown accustomed to, and hence have been spoiled by. The only real criticism I have is with the audio mix.

When news came out that this amazing concert was being re-released by VoicePrint, I was absolutely thrilled and pre-ordered it as soon as I could. The price was far from cheap, but hey... A 2007 brand-new release of such a classic concert, we'd have 5.1 sound, at least 2.0 DTS, we'd have remastered image, we'd have a single DVD-9 with the full (non-interrupted) concert and a bonus DVD with the "In The Big Dream" documentary.

At least we *thought* we'd have all this.

When I finally got this, my first impression was excellent, as the digipak case and discs are superb, very nice piece of work...

...which instanty vanishes as soon as you press PLAY.

I've known nearly all versions of this amazing concert, since it was first released on VHS, back in the late 80's. I even got the official LaserDisc release once, which I captured to my PC and authored my own personalized DVD, as I thought it would never be released as a DVD. Back then, the quality of this LD impressed me, and the "featurette" in the very beginning, during which Jon Anderson walks from his dressing room to the stage (through the crowd) was a pleasant surprise.

Well... Surprise ! You DON'T get that on this "new" DVD. And that isn't all that was taken away... Most of the dialogue and interaction with the audience between songs has simply been chopped off by VoicePrint ! To make things a little worse, the image quality is only acceptable, very similar to the old LD release... I also had the chance to check the first DVD release of this concert (by Image Entertainment itself), and I really saw no difference at all.

Not many people I know enjoyed the ABWH stuff as much as I did. Since I have never seen this and missed the first printing of this DVD, I was glad when they re-released this at a decent price. This 2 ˝ hour concert consists of the basic Yes faves (killer version of "Close to the Edge") and a nice selection of tunes from the ABWH album. The video footage is clear but the camera is not always where it should be and there are some cheesy video effects. The audio is decent but comes only with a stereo mix and there are no extra features - what a bummer.

Anderson, as always, appears to be in a state of bliss, Bruford is armed with his electronic kit and seems to be enjoying most of the gig, Wakeman is surrounded by nine keyboards (not sure if he uses all of them) and is nearly flawless, and Howe is animated and looks happy. The other rarely seen musicians on this DVD are - Jeff Berlin (bass, vocals), Julian Colbeck (keys, vocals), and Milton McDonald (guitar, vocals).

Overall this is an awesome souvenir of a brief moment in time and all ABWH fans, that don't already own this, should get this before it goes out of print again.

FYI - Amazon's product description mentions this comes with a photo booklet and sleeve notes. Mine didn't have these items.

This lengthy live DVD concert presents interesting material of the original Yes music. In the beginning Jon Anderson conducts a nice charming chat introduction of the band. He appeared walking between the audience to get into the stage to perform an acoustic sing alone section of hits including "Owner of A Lonely Heart". After this, Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman and Bill Bruford play respectively a solo section too. In this concert we can see the great feelings and a sense of respect and fraternity between the members of the band. This Time the YES performance delivers its music with Bill Bruford on board, the band plays the well known songs of the Yes repertoire like "Close to The Edge", "And You & I" or "Roundabout" being helped too by the support of jazz bassist american virtuoso Jeff Berlin to reinforce the classic YES SOUND, even though we really miss a bit the fat metalic sound playing of former bassist Chris Squire (at the time with another founder member Tony Kaye). YES presents The songs of their first ABWH recording that really gets better with the performance of the mystical songs "Birthright" and "Heart Of The Sunrise"

This is really a great opportunity to get a marvellous concert at the nineties stage of a superprogressive group like YES. Is a good recording, with good image and sound and a great feeling in it, and it well worth the price to pay. Every Yes fan must have this... So get it! and Good Luck!...
