In the eighties, under the influence of Trevor Rabin, Yes became a (very good) pop rock band. So, for me, it was a great delight when they decided to reform what I considered to be their all time best lineup with Jon Anderson on vocals, Steve Howe on guitars, Rick Wakeman on keyboards and the great Bill Bruford on drums. Only Chris Squire on bass would be missing from the group, but Tony Levin (studio)/Jeff Berlin (live) would certainly be a more than competent replacement.
This group, under the name of A-B-W-H because of legal considerations, would put out one very good (if not as good as the classic seventies Yes albums) cd and do a tour that, for reasons I can't remember, I would miss and regret not attending.
An Evening Of Yes Music Plus is an audio recording of one of the shows from that tour. After starting nicely but slowly (and perhaps a bit strangely) with some "solo" music by Anderson, Wakeman and Howe, the show really gets up a notch when the classic Yes material is played, with a few of the A-B-W-H pieces spinkled in. The performance is great all around and the concert is very well recorded. In my opinion this is the last great tour by this group of musicians. The "Union" tour that followed was almost a fiasco and subsequent incantations of Yes would never attain the level they once had, even though they made a few valliant attempts.
Considering the setlist, the musicians' performances and the audio quality, I consider An Evening Of Yes Music Plus to be one of the ultimate Yes live recordings. My highest recommendation indeed!!!
