Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars This DVD collects several Belgian Promo Videos (it looks more like they were made for a special TV programme) made in 1970 for their "Time and a Word" album, but made without Peter Banks (who recorded the guitars in that album but left the band before its release) and with Steve Howe appearing as his replacement, miming to Banks`s guitar parts, with all the other members of the band also doing playbacks to the studio tracks. There are also some "introductions" of the members of the band done in a "funny " way (well...maybe for the writer of the script they were "funny", but not for me). The "concepts" of the videos also look not very interesting for my taste. In fact, I think that some of the "concepts" look very dated now and sometimes "absurd" for my taste (similar to other TV programmes and other promo video clips that I watched on youtube from the Dutch band Ekseption, also done in the early seventies which also look very dated now and which also marred a bit the band`s TV appearances).

Well. A brief description of every promotional video (all filmed in Color):

"Astral Traveller": made in a TV studio with brief scenes taken on a beach and with the "strange" appearance of a very conservative British bussinesman (!).

"Everydays": filmed with the band appearing in a forest or in a park and also on a boat on a river or canal, with the "strange" appearance of a nun (!) first chasing them (!) in the forest or park and then travelling with them in the boat (!).

" Then": filmed on a beach with Tony Kaye "playing"the bass guitar (!) and with Chris Squire "playing" the organ (!).

"No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed": filmed on the streets of a city or town with the band driving a Volkswagen Boogie Car (a very popular car during those years; even I had a plastic toy version of that car when I was 5 years old in 1970!) and also "playing and singing" the song in a cars cemetery. The band appears driving the car very fast and taking some unnecessary "risks" while doing it.

Some bits of most of these promo video clips (with the exception of the one made for "Everydays") previously appeared briefly in the "Yesyears" documentary from 1991. They are mostly of historic importance.
