This review is from: Yes: Union - Live [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
Didn't even know this show was available until I found it by accident on Amazon. As a YES fan of many years standing it was a must have item.
Got to be honest though. It's not great. If your a fan of Howe era yes you will be particularly dissapointed, I think. Lots of Rabin stuff and old yes, which is good, but, nothing from AWBH! (depending on your stand point that may or may not be a good thing). Howe seemed to not show as strongly in the footage as Mr Rabin.
There are two distinct camps in the Rabin/Howe Yes debate. Kind of a Marmite thing, you either love or hate one or the other. Me? I've got a foot in both camps, which is why I was eager to get hold of this DVD. I am dissapointed in the content, the post production is quite poor and feel there must have been more of the show that could have been included that would have satisfied everyone.
Overall I'd say that this DVD could have been a lot better if more time had been spent gathering better footage of what must have been a superb run of shows, seems a bit last minute to me. If you must have everything then go for it. Otherwise seek out YES Symphonic Live. Over the top post production again but with the option of not having to watch the dodgy bits of graphic add ons unless you really want to.
