This single by Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe released in 1989 is interesting for Yes fans primarily because of the non- album b-side (or c-side actually) Vultures In The City. This song is in a similar style to the ones that ended up on the album and it would not have been out of place on that album. Personally, I wouldn't have minded this song instead of Teakbois, the least good song on that lone Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album.

There are two other tracks here. The a-side is an edited version of Brother Of Mine which is cut down to six and a half minuted from the original ten and a half minutes. It is a beautiful song and even though I prefer the uncut album version, it works also in this shorter version. Themes is however left untouched and is thus the same as on the album.

Overall, we get here some 18 minutes of very good music, one song of which is not available elsewhere (though it has since been made available on a bonus disc with recent re-releases of the Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album).
