PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Early 2004 I wrote his biography for Prog Archives as a tribute to my first guitar hero. On this DVD you can witness Steve Howe's incredible virtuosity and versatiliy. On the first part he plays with his own band featuring his two sons Virgil on keyboards (he looks very similar to the young Steve Howe) and Dylan on drums. You can enjoy his play in a wide variety of styles: cheerful country in "Country viper", Ventures-inspired guitar rock in "Diary of a man who vanished" and bluesrock in "Pennants. Not everybody will be pleased with the way Steve turned the bombastic archetypical progrock composition "Close to the edge" into a mellow camp-fire song but I love the warm atmosphere. One of the higlights is the track "Raga" (the most popular ethnic music from India) in which Steve delivers a splendid sitar-like sound, very compelling! It is followed by the Tomorrow (Howe's early steps to success) song "My white bicycle" (strong rendition) and "Wurm" (strong guitarwork but I miss the synthesizer duel). To me Steve Howe plays very well with his band, I enjoyed their music. The second part features Stve Howe solo on the acoustic guitar, what a stunning performance, from "Excerpt from The ancient" and "Mood for a day" to "Intersection blues" (exciting blend of blues and ragtime) and the inevitable but amazing "Clap". GREAT! The final part includes a "Tour story", a nice bonus. I award this DVD with 3 stars for the average proghead and 4 stars for the guitar freaks!
