2 stars I used to have tihs VHS 12 years ago or so. It shows some of the "Making of" of the ABWH album with some nice studio footage, interviews and most important of all, the three promo clips for the album: Brother of Mine, Order of the Universe and I'm Alive. The video clip of "Brother of Mine" is fantastic, bringing to memory those great Duran Duran video clips from the 80's. Similar quality is featured on the "I'm Alive" video clip and this version is longer from that of album, with a different ending. "Order of the Universe" has your regular video clip with band on stage playing in front of an audience.

The highlight of this rather short VHS (37 minutes) is the live version of "Heart of the Sunrise" taken from the same gig where "A Night of Yes Music plus" CD and video were recorded with Jeff Berlin on bass replacing Tony Levin. The performance of the track is excellent although not as powerful as how Yes played it on the Big Generator tour, of course here we have Mr. Wakeman on keyboards adding much of the original spirit of the composition. This same "Heart of the Sunrise" footage will be later available on the "A Night of Yes Music plus" live video.

I don't think many people would be much interested in owning a video comprised of promo clips and little studio footage. Nowadays it's almost impossible to get this VHS as it's out of print like most of the VHS releases.

So 2 stars, mostly for Yes "die-hard" fans. I would have given 3 stars at the time of its release when "A Night of Yes Music Plus" was still unavailable.

Prosciutto | 2/5 |
