4 stars For fans of Chris Squire this DVD is essential, having his stamp all over it. You can very easily recognize his distinctive bass guitar sound and also his distinctive backing vocals. This DVD features a very intimate performance by The Syn, Squire's pre-Yes band which also features another Yes-man - Alan White - on drums. The Syndestructible album is performed here in its entirety as well as some songs from the mid- 60's that were only released as singles back then. The new material sounds not modern, but also not 60's, it sounds timeless really!

This concert is lovely. Watching it is like being there. Squire tells jokes and a long anecdote from his time with the Syn in the 60's.

This might be nostalgia for some, but for most of us this is something brand new. It is incredible that Chris resurrected The Syn after so many years despite them never having had any real success back then.

Highly recommended for fans of Chris Squire and early classic prog in general.
