3 stars Review originally posted at www.therocktologist.com

It would be a dream to see these two gentlemen in show, Wakeman is one of my musical idols, while Anderson's voice is always a pleasure; I hope to see them soon, no matter what they play. However, I cannot say I am really happy with this live album, in which they combine classic Yes songs with themes from their 2010 release "The Living Tree", later I will tell you the reasons. This live record is entitled "The Living Tree in Concert Part One", consists of twelve tracks and a total time of 56 minutes; of course, the performers are only Mr. Anderson and Mr. Wakeman.

They chose a Yes track to open the show, which I am not really sure if was the best decision since what they are promoting is their latest album, but well, fragments of "And You and I" can be heard and enjoyed for five minutes in this duo version. Anderson's voice sounds a bit tired or worn, but it is normal after so many years of effort. Wakeman's keyboards are not that bombastic, are calm and charming, closer to his new age records.

Now after that introduction, they perform the first two tracks of "The Living Tree". The first is "The Living Tree (Part 1)" which has a gentle and warm sound, with hopeful lyrics and an ambience of tranquility. The second is "Morning Star" which I really like. Since its beginning the piano let us know this is a more intense song; there is an obvious communion between voice and piano, both create the atmosphere and decide the song's fate with their tone variations and; a very good song.

The previous song is connected with "Long Distance Runaround", which provokes the audience applause and joy. Here they delight us with two minutes of this well-known piece, though there is a moment where they make the song theirs. Later they return to "Living Tree", first with "The Garden", a calm, reflexive song with soft vocals and atmospheric keyboards combined with piano. It is linked with "The Living Tree (Part 2)", we can actually appreciate the change, though it is not that obvious. Actually the whole album is mellow with a relaxing sound, sharing that peace both characters release.

The intercalation of classic with new tracks is good because it is a way to please the audience. Now they did it with a cool and charismatic version of "Time and a Word", in which Anderson plays a repetitive guitar, while Wakeman make his crazy things. At the end, Anderson adds some lines of other non-Yes well-known songs, such as "She Loves You (yeah, yeah, yeah)". The concert continues with "Just One Man" which is the epilogue of the Living Tree. What I like of the concert is that anyone could distinguish the Yes songs, with the Anderson/Wakeman ones without having listened to any of them; if you listen to it, you will know what I am talking about.

"23/24/11" is a beautiful yet disarming song, one of my favorites. Here I like how it starts calm, softly progresses until it reaches a climax in which Anderson's voice becomes higher and more emotional. Once again, the communion between both musicians is wonderful. "Southside of the Sky" is the last Yes song, with a keyboard introduction for a minute, and then acoustic guitar and voice joins; you already know the song.

The final pair is "House of Freedom" and "The Meeting". The first one was taken from the Living Tree, a nice song that follows the same path of the majority of the tracks, nice vocals and warm keyboards, with a slight symphonic sound, my favorite part is after four minutes, an instrumental passage that puts some images in my head. And the second one is taken from that 1989 album of Anderson-Bruford-Wakeman-Howe, though the version is a bit different, for obvious reasons, the melancholic and cute sound is the same.

This is a good album, if you liked "The Living Tree" you will love this live performance, otherwise you will enjoy it, but never adore it.

Review by ProgShine
COLLABORATOR Errors & Omissions and Crossover Team
3 stars The whole 'going acoustic' from Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman isn't new. They did it back in 2006. Not just the concerts, they also released a new studio album after that called The Living Tree (2010). Both musicians don't need presentations. They were Yes pillars and every Progger know that.

In 2010 Anderson/Wakeman went on tour to support their studio album. They were basically playing Yes songs with new arrangements and also their new songs. The result of that tour is the live album The Living Tree In Concert Part One (2011). The album was released by Gonzo Multimedia and it's something quite unique. Rick Wakeman is the main man on the album, playing beautiful pianos and complementary keyboards. Jon Anderson fills his role quite well. Although his voice seems weak sometimes and his acoustic guitar playing isn't that great.

Old Yes songs like 'And You And I', Long Distance Runaround' (a big and positive surprise), 'Southside' and even a reggae version of 'Time And A Word' are really great and fun versions. In the other side we also have great original songs like 'Living Tree (Pats 1 & 2)', 'Morning Star' (this one's great) and 'The Meeting' (from Jon's first solo album). The rest of the album fall on the ballad side of things, which can be boring sometimes.

In general a 3.5 stars album with many great moments of two Prog legends. Just don't expect a lot of Prog in here, cause you'll not really find.

Key tracks: And You And I & Morning Star

Review by SouthSideoftheSky
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
3 stars The Living Tree comes alive

This is the live version of the Anderson/Wakeman album The Living Tree, enhanced by stripped-down versions of classic Yes songs. The songs from The Living Tree sound somewhat better to me in a live setting, they feel somehow more alive. And the fact that they are interspersed with well-known Yes songs like And You And I, Long Distance Runaround, and South Side Of The Sky, as well as the lovely The Meeting from the Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe album, makes this live recording overall more interesting than the studio album.

Like on the studio album, the only performers here are Jon and Rick, so don't expect a band performance. The focal point is Jon's distinctive voice and Rick's characteristic playing. Since there are no electric guitars, no drums, bass, or harmony vocals, these versions are rather "naked". Jon sings and plays acoustic guitar while Rick's primary instrument is the Classical piano. However, it is not a completely acoustic performance as there are also some other, non-acoustic, keyboard instruments being used. The latter are given a somewhat stronger presence here than on the Living Tree studio album, which adds a somewhat greater variation in sounds.

Why this album is subtitled Part One I don't know. Can we expect a second part I wonder? This live album is thoroughly pleasant and you can feel that both performers enjoy themselves on stage. However, though better than the studio album, these undemanding performances are by no means essential.
