The setlist is very good considering this is not a complete show. There was a Special Edition double DVD/CD edition available from Gonzo Multi Media. Much to my chagrin, it was only being offered through the Gonzo Website. The makers of this DVD have cut JA's solo 'Soon',as well as the songs 'Shock to the System' and 'Lift me up' and others from the final edit probably due to time constraints. This is
really the only disappointing thing I can say about this DVD. You still get almost 2 hours in (1:58 to be exact)length and the show still comes off as a full show. To bad, I miss the content which was cut. Problem solved! I took the initative to visit the Gonzo Multi media Website and decided to purchase the Deluxe 2 CD and 2 DVD Package from Gonzo for $39.95. The 2nd DVD in the Gonzo Deluxe package has two full length 'bootleg' shows with all the tracks and more which didn't make the final cut of the 1st DVD. The quality of the 'bootleg'shows in the 2nd
DVD is so so with inconsistent audio and video which is barely acceptable. Nevertheless, you still get two full length concerts. The Denver and Pensacola concerts are in the round, with all the songs which were excluded in the first DVD. The Denver show is very professionally filmed but has drawbacks with clarity of the video and low hum in the audio background which is kind of annoying after watching for a while. Still, it is rare footage! The 2nd DVD concerts include the Bruford /White drum duet which is awesome. I'm glad I have this limited edition, very rare collection which is out of print now. I won't be selling mine on eBay anytime soon.
There are many great individual solo performances which make this a wonderful show. Squire, Howe, Rabin and Wakeman in particular all put on stellar performances. This is a great DVD if you want to look back 20 years from now. The sound and video quality are excellent considering this has been copied from a previous Japenese import version.
Sad to say with the recent passing of Chris Squire there will never be a Yes re-union. I will always be thankful I was able to see Chris Squire
so many times over the last 45 years.
