1 stars A quick look a the "concert program" should appeal to any Yes or Wakeman's first period fan. After all you have new versions of mainly all the most famous pieces from the most revered recordings of the seventies, consistently considered his best period. How come the four preceding persons who have noted -quite highly, this record haven't had added few words and comments about it? This would preserved many from a HUGE disapointment! So cheesy ... how come that such a -once ago, reputed avant-garde keyboard player can come with sounds so dated, while not even being what some would call "vintage". Understand that the virtuosity or the sense of melody is still intact, but gone are the modernity or audacity of arrangements. You simply just feel that some great classics are spoiled with the intention of appealing to buyers once open to prog but turned since then to musak or elevator music. I tried to find one versionof these once beloved songs on my personal collection before selling it back to a used record store and couldn't find any... i supposed this means only one star. Sorry all you four guys!
