Format: DVD
Rick's tour of Cuba was regrettably a controversial one. Though it didn't need to be. This DVD explains for anyone and everyone's satisfaction that the tour was about music, and more importantly sick children, - not politics.
Rick's performances with his band of hand picked highly talented musicians are now legendary. DVD's like 'Live in Buenos Aires' give us a good look at this talent.
But 'Made in Cuba' takes the energy level to another plane. Quite a number of Rick's classics appear on the playlist, but it is the energy level which hits the viewer early on the opening sections of 'Journey,' and continue their way through to a stunning high impact conclusion with Yes's 'Starship Trooper.'
Sure, Ashley Holt's vocals don't compare with Jon Anderson's but this is a comparison which need not be applied here. Rick's effort on this song alone, should be worth the price of the DVD.
Glimpses of a very appreciative crowd inhance the perception of a powerful concert as well.
As for the venue, the Karl Marx Centre, Rick explains during about 27 minutes of bonus interview material that Mr. Castro was intending to perform a speech at that venue on the same night as Rick's show, but when Mr. Castro found out, he moved himself to another hall so as not to confict with the show. As Rick says in amazement, "I can't imagine Tony Blair changing venue's for me!"
This show has been brilliantly filmed. The cameras, angles and sound reproduction should leave no-one with any complaints.
I consider this to be the best Rick Wakeman live DVD. All credit to 'Classic Pictures' for getting this one into my collection.
This is a valuable piece of Rock History!

Format: DVD
Made In Cuba is a simply fantastic music DVD, representing great value for money. The concert itself has a superb track-listing, a high-quality performance and is presented with great Video and Audio Quality. The DVD extras are very and interesting, especially the documentary about actually putting on a rock concert in Cuba, in which Mr. Wakeman himself is wonderful.

In the concert the backing band are all impressive and rip through Rick's classics with style and energy. I came to this DVD as a curious Yes fan and am now also a Rick Wakeman, entirely fan thanks to this.

My personal favourite songs here are 'Arthur,' and 'Return Of The Phantom,' however every song is a cracker, and this is the sort of live DVD that you can watch multiple times without getting sick of. The first song may take a while to get going and the singer may take a bit of getting used to, but by the second song you'll be captivated.

Overall, If like me you're a curious Yes fan like I was, or if you just like well made and interesting concert DVDs then I'd recommend that you give this a shot, you'll probably love it!

Absolutely excellent musicianship in evidence from Rick and a new lineup of the English Rock Ensemble. All the usual favourites are there, with some new twists coming from the new players in the band.

WEll, absolutely good, good stuff, good musicians, merlin the magician its my favorite, i like a lot, i just don't like all tracks that ashley holt sing, i think he is a little bit old, and his voice is no more good, and in king arthur the sound of the minimoog is poor, but all the concert is the great, not like rick wakeman live in 1990 but is one to have!.
