Editorial Reviews

The inspiration behind the sound of Yes, Steve Howe developed an exciting and unique style which is totally his own. Join Steve as he introduces us to the inside story of his love affair with the guitar! This DVD is an intimate portrait of one of the greatest guitarists in the history of rock. It features rare performance footage, extensive interviews, and unique film of Steve at home and at work in the studio.

Customer Reviews

The sound is very good.
R. C. Steingraber
It's not the video or audio quality of some of the recent, pristine quality concert DVD's I've seen lately, but it is very good nonetheless.
James Hintzen
I would recommend this though for fans wanting to hear excellent music performed by first rate musicians.

The Wishbone Ash 20th Anniversary Concert was part of a made-for-tv series of classic rock legends filmed at a small theatre in England. The sound quality is excellent. The picture quality is very good with some nice close ups although a few less camera angle shifts and a few more shots of the entire band would have made for better viewing. The cream is the group and song selection. The show features the original lineup of Andy Powell (the only member of the 2002 lineup), Martin Turner, Ted Turner, and Steve Upton.
The video runs at an even 50 minutes with a few "new" songs intermixed with great renditions of the King Will Come, Blowin' Free, and an ending medley of early hits. Ted Turner's guitar playing is wonderful, making it seem like he never left the band or the circuit. The entire "Classic Rock Legends" looks to be an interesting series. This DVD includes trailers for many other videos in the series, showing the viewer enough to make a decision on whether to buy them.

This is an absolutely phenominal DVD by one of the greatest bands ever! The song selection is excellent.Any fan of the band will be thrilled by the songs played. People unfamiliar with Wishbone Ash will be blown away by stellar performances of many of their best songs. The sound is very good. The camera work, ditto. My only complaint is the same as my critiques of the shows I saw on this tour: the show was not long enough, and the band doesn't get a chance to really stretch out on the long improvizations for which they are so renowned. Still, this DVD is better than 99% of the musical DVD's out there. Buy this bargain now. You will not be disappointed!

Line-up being Cousins, Hooper, Willoughby, Parren, Demick and Hudson.
There's not a lot of extras here except the performance - which is great. The sound is very dirty, typical tv broadcast - lots of hiss (but that could have been the combination of playing it through my computer to an oldish tv). But you can tell that before it was broadcast a good-ish production job was done on the mixing and sound.
It's easy to live with all the limitations and lack of extras because the performance is fantastic. We are given a graphic example of why this band and their music is greatly underrated. Cousins is deep in his trances when he sings, living the lyrics (autobiographical or not). The songs are alive, with each band member doing their best to make ever song reach its full potential. The keyboards provide both a background wash for the atmosphere of the songs, and the orchestral furnishings. Parren looks nervous but his work is dynamic. Bass and drums are tight and rock based. Willoughby provides appropriate fireworks and cutting edges, and Hooper is there to authenticate the Strawbs vocal sound. It's everything you'd expect from a full band gig of the Strawbs.
This DVD is highly recommended.

Excellent Live Show from a band most people have probably never heard of. Hawkwind has actually been in continuous operation since 1969 with Guitarist/Vocalist Dave Brock the one constant through countless personnel changes. Hawkwind never made much of an effort to crack the U.S. Market (Most of their albums were never even released in the U.S.) but the band is fairly well known in Europe. This version of Hawkwind (Dave Brock - Vocals/Guitar, Alan Davey - Vocals/Bass, Harvey Bainbridge - Keyboards/Vocals, Simon House - Violin, & Richard Chadwick - Drums) is made up of excellent musicians who can just flat out play. The bands sound is hard to categorize but it is somewhat like progressive hard rock . Kind of like Yes meets Guns n Roses with an Electric Violin thrown in. This concert rocks from beginning to end and the bands use of flashing lights, video backdrops, fog, strobes, guest dancers and fire eaters (You read correctly) adds to the visual presentation. The video quality is excellent and the sound is very good although the overall level is somewhat low (You have to turn up the volume on your TV or Sound System although the sound is clear with no hum). The only reason I gave this 4 stars is that the concert is under 52 minutes in length and there are no extras on the DVD. I would recommend this though for fans wanting to hear excellent music performed by first rate musicians. Songs: Lives of Great Men, Golden Void (Void of Golden Light), Out of The Shadows, Night of The Hawks, Back in The Box, Utopia, Ejection, Damnation Alley.

Altho' pretty barebones as far as DVD features go, this DVD is more about Steve Howe talking about how he began to play the guitar and then goes through an overview of his career up and until the late 80s, prior to ABWH merging into the UNION lineup. In addition to Howe being interviewed, he performs some acoustic songs and some excerpts from solo songs, Yes songs, and even GTR. His role in Asia isn't given too much discussion, but he does offer some interesting insights as to why the original band dissolved so quickly. For the most part, the DVD concentrates on his work with Yes - which I'm sure will please the audience for this DVD. At about an hour, this is a good little DVD to pick up if you're a big Steve Howe fan.
