I have loved the music of Yes for very nearly 40 years and have seen them play live more than any other band. I was really looking forward to this package for two main reasons. Firstly I wanted to see and hear how the two new members fitted in and performed. And secondly I wanted to hear them perform songs from Drama. I think I'm right in saying that Jon Anderson had always refused to perform anything from an album he never appeared on. Of the two new members, Benoit David was especially good, playing acoustic guitar on several tracks and singing beautifully.
Whilst the two CDs are excellent, it was the DVD which was, for me, the jewel in the crown. I loved seeing the band giving a slightly new twist to old, familiar songs, as well as the revealing and informative interviews spread throughout the DVD. The highlight was, without doubt, a stunning rendition of Machine Messiah from Drama which closed the show.
Well done to Frontiers for issuing this well put-together package. Next time can we have more of the live shows on DVD please? Oh, and superb value for money too.
