Editorial Reviews

The Home Brew project started way back in 1996 with Volume 1, drawing from Steve Howe's writing demos for music & songs before collaboration or re-recording for CDs like ABWH & GTR. Volume 2 touched on Union & Keys To Ascension by Yes & his early solo albums. Volume 3 was drawn from The Ladder & Magnification by Yes, & Steve's solo CDs Turbulence & Grand Scheme. Volume 4 has tracks from his Quantum Guitar CD, Asia's Phoenix and various other tracks, as they all do, from other projects.

Volume 5 contains music from Yes's Fly From Here, Asia's xxx & Omega releases & Steve's solo Spectrum CD.

Most tracks were recorded at Langley Studios, Devon, where Steve writes & records his ideas. Later they usually get re-recorded or collaborated with otherwriters. Steve then performs and records these basic ideas, which is kind of taken from the tradition that guitarists like Les Paul & Chet Atkins started when tape recording & over-dubbing became possible at one's home location.

Steve Howe is indefatigable as he continues to tour with Yes, Asia (until Recently) and the Steve Howe trio. He somehow managed the time to release "Homebrew Five." This Cd is an audio delight as Steve Howe composed and performs several songs that emanate from recent Yes and Asia albums. There are also short tunes that derive from his exemplary "Spectrum" album. His eclectic musical tastes and astounding guitar virtuosity are prominent. Howe's detached British vocals continue to enhance and augment another one of his mostly instrumental Cd's. "Homebrew Five" is a treat for music fans who enjoy the recordings of one of the planet's greatest and most prolific guitarists, namely, Steve Howe.

Just when you thought there couldn't be any more demos left to even put on a bootleg here comes Homebrew 5 from Steve Howe now out of Asia again but still in Yes and on his own. Demo tracks of all three are here and like the albums predecessors it shows an insight to the songwriting process and what parts of band songs are his. Mostly instrumentals this time. Not easy to listen to all the way through. I'm sure there'll be a Homebrew 6 in a few years.

I've been a Yes fan since the early 70s, before "Beginnings" was even recorded or released! But as a Yes fan from the "Yes Album" forward I was always amazed at the transformation that Steve brought to the band. The ensuing albums, Fragile, Close to the Edge, Tales and Relayer turned me into a huge fan of Howe's virtuoso ability on such a wide array of stringed instruments.

In the space the fell between Relayer and the eventual semi-reunion of the classic Yes line-up for "Going for the One" us Yes fans got to hear solo albums from all five band members. I really liked all of them except for "Ramshackled" (sorry Alan).

Beginnings struck me as kind of quirky when I first listened to it. But even as a teenager, I appreciated it more and more after repeated listens. By then end of the Summer of 1976, that album was synaptic-ally embedded in my brain!

Tracks like Lost Horizon and Australia became lifelong classics. Put that album on after 10 years and I instantly recall every note and melody from each song.

I paid close attention to "The Steve Howe Album" as it was the next release after a few years. I really enjoyed that one as well. It too became a classic for me.

But then came punk rock, alternative and new whatever you wanna call it. I was distracted and found lots of new artists that I enjoyed. I didn't lose my interested in Yes until they made an album with Trevor Rabin in his place. Despite the lack of the distinctive voice of Jon Anderson for the first time in the band's career, I thought that Steve and Chris kicked ass and really carried "Drama" for me. A guilty pleasure behind the overt love for the Clash, Gang of Four and many other early 80s contemporaries.
