I had this concert on VHS and can confirm that this is the full concert. I saw this concert back in 1989 and this brought back happy memories. Great to see Bill Bruford playing the elctric drum kit, really different sound to the classic songs. If you like the albumn then this is well worth the buy. Good quality good sound. Great to see the different solo spots. If you're a YES fan then this one worth buying.

Most fans of Yes will love this DVD despite some of the clothing the individual musicians are wearing. All four members of ABWH are at the top of their game. The choice of material is largely from the best of YES although the songs from the only ABWH album ever recorded are amongst the best songs in their catalogue. This DVD is not for those who don't like show-offs but it is for those who take music seriously and like excellent music/musicianship (and of course YES).

The coming together of Jon Anderson Bill Bruford, Rick Wakeman and Steve Howe as a group at the end of the 80s was seen by many as a sort of version of Yes that got back to the progressive leanings of the 70s rather than the more commercial sound of the 80s. Personally, I don't think it was quite as simple as that as there was certainly a difference in sound (Chris Squire's distinctive bass sound is missing for a start). However this DVD is a good testament to the tour that followed the album which I happened to catch at the time. There is much to commend it, particularly in the playing of the new material which comes across really well. There are two criticisms I would level at it which to stop it from being a five-star review. First is the obvious one and that is the sound quality from what is probably a TV broadcast suffers from the technology of the time. The second one is a bit more surprising and is that I don't believe the Yes songs in the set benefit from the extra keyboard and guitar here. This is very apparent on 'Starship Trooper' which has a very dense sound and therefore misses the sparseness in the music that made the original so compelling by creating space for each instrument. Other than that it's great to have live versions of songs like 'Brother of mine' and 'The order of the universe' as they certainly deserve to be part of the Yes legacy. All in all a very enjoyable evening!

After reading the book the 'Extrordinary Life of Yes', I just had to buy this DVD as it had good reviews. I obviously knew that Chris Squire was out of the frame, but in the aforementioned book, I discovered that in fact Jeff Berlin was playing bass at the gig depping for an ill Tony Levin. I was so excited to think that I'd see Jeff with one of my all-time favourite spin-offs (of YES).
Alas, for the first half even when in fact the band is playing, you just don't see or more importantly hear him. The production is quite poor I'm afraid and Jeff is not really heard, this being so frustrating especially to me, a bass player. Its weird because the whole Yes philosophy was to put Chris Squire very much to the fore (in the beginning Yes were produced by Eddie Offord through headphones thus bass naturally low so had to be increased, making the Yes bass-heavy trademark)
Why on earth wasn't the bass at this gig given more of a better prominence? I just don't know. Although this is a pretty negative review, the playing is as good as usual in every respect, if only we could hear the playing of Mr Berlin, one of the World's greatist bassists!

The orginal VHS version of this WONDERFUL concert was 150 minutes long. Does anyone have a clue why this version is listed as only being 45 minutes long?! Is that an error or is it really only 45 minutes long?
