CD Reviews

Super demos
11/23/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Don't let the fact that these are home recorded demos throw you off- the quality is high- these are polished pieces and the cd could serve as Steve's "greatest hits" except that these are seminal, alternate versions of some of his better known (at least to YES fanatics) work; offering some interesting insights into the music's development. Anyway, these are not just curiosities, they stand up very well on their own and the album as a whole is the best Steve Howe album around-"
An interesting peek

"Steve Howe the guitarist is superb; Steve Howe the singer shouldn't quit his day job. The meat and potatoes of this collection of Howe's home recordings are his "guitar suites," the various instrumentals he recorded with massive overdubs from his stringed arsenal that make all of them wonderful to listen to. You also get the demos of songs that eventually became full-blown Yes pieces. It's an interesting view of how some of the tunes evolved---all featuring several good reasons why Jon Anderson is the lead singer for Yes."
