Editorial Reviews

For two brief but glorious years The Syn resided at the crossroads of 60s psychedelia and pop. They shared bills at London's Marquee club with the likes of Pink Floyd and Hendrix, released some legendary underground singles ("Flowerman", "14 Hour Technicolour Dream") and created the blueprint for rock innovators Yes. Four decades later, original founding members Chris Squire (who went on to found Yes) and Steve Nardelli reunited for a new CD and their first-ever live dates in America. This DVD captures the stellar new line-up (featuring Yes drummer Alan White) on a magical night in Boston, performing material new and old. DVD extras also include extensive band interviews and backstage footage. An important new chapter in the history of one of rock's great, nearly-lost treasures.

On January 19th, 2006, The Syn performed at the Summerville Theater in Boston. Hot on the heels of their popular reunion CD, "Syndestructible", this would be, in fact, the bands first tour ever outside their native England, and also their first tour in about, say, 30 years! This DVD captures the whole event, from the unedited 90 minute concert, to the onstage banter, to some interviews backstage. However, don't expect the grand production values of "Songs From Tsongas" or other recent Yes DVDs. What we get here is more like an intimate club gig. There is no light show to speak of, and definitely no Roger Dean-designed set pieces - just a band, standing close together on a cramped stage, playing their music for a small but appreciative audience (maybe a few hundred or so.) Fans are probably already aware that the line-up has changed slighty since the release of the CD. Group founders Chris Squire & Stephen Nardelli are still present, of course, as if keyboardist Gerard Johnson. But gone are the Stacey brothers, replaced here by Yes drum legend Alan White, and American guitarist Shane Theriot (who looks considerably younger than the others.) This concert reveals more of a raw, rock-n-roll side to the band than was evident on "Syndestructible". There is a slightly crunchier edge to the guitars, and some slammin', dynamic drumming from White that helps kick things up a notch. The set-list gives us a taste of The Syn's past, present, and future. From the past we get a 3 song medley of the band's 60s-era singles, "Grounded-Flowerman-14th Hour Technicolor Dream" (with a brief Who-inspired jam during "14th Hour"!) From the present we get the "Syndestructible" CD played in its entirety (although the acapella "Breaking Down Walls" is used as taped introduction music, not actually performed live.Read more ›

Great dvd, I didn't see them live but this is the next best thing. It rocks from start to finish with the great Hendrix story from Squire as a kind of intermission.

Small theatre gives a very good feel to whole show, Squire and White really close up and in the groove and I really liked Nardelli, good voice and feel.

Very nice lead guitar from Theriot and back-up from Johnson on keyboards, plus the backstage interviews are terrific.

Yeah, this is a great dvd from a great band.

I'm a Yes fan, I bought this to see what the Syn was all about - forgettable music, really didn't find anything compelling whatsoever about their music. Probably a band that was laid to rest way back when - and should have stayed that way.

I donot own this DVD yet, but I was there, 3rd row at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland Ohio to see this show....drove from Dayton [maybe 3.5 hours] by myself to take this, basically, one off show before they called it quits....if my memory is correct, they only played what, 6,7,8 shows, then said goodbye??? I have followed Yes for about 30 years, seen them 29 times [wow], so I was'nt going to let this opportunity to see Chris Squire, in another musical element....not knowing that it would as short lived as it was...what a high energy, fun, just absolutely great show it was...Squire and White played off each other all night [heck, they've had enough practice at it]....true, Steve Nardelli was a bit stiff, does'nt have much stage presence, but his vocals, in it's sort of 'innocent' way, were perfect for this band at this time in it's history....and the other fellows in the band are very good players in their own right...again, not seeing this video, but seeing the 'real deal' in the flesh, if you are a fan of Yes, Chris Squire, Alan White, or have listened to the Syndestructible disc and liked it, I would easily recommend this DVD....I feel privileged to have seen this live, and I wish they had more music for us to enjoy!!!
